Some things start a fandom and no one really knows why.
Zombieland wasn’t one of those movies.
The original was a fun romp of basically sketches of killing the undead. Everyone loves zombie films and comedy, so when you mix the two together you get a classic. Sure it helped that you had 4 amazing actors, all of them with Oscar nominations and one with Academy gold. It felt like these stars were too big for a return to Zombieland, but now, a full 10 years, and we have the oh so appropriately named ‘Zombieland: Double Tap’.
As I’ve said above, Zombieland works. In the above interview, Jesse Eisenberg tells us how the idea that the 4 together is like The Odd Couple, Emma Stone talks about how all of the characters are different than each other, Zoey Deutch, and Rosario Dawson explains how it’s believable the characters have survived for 10 years now, and then Woody Harrelson gives his two-word input on why you should see the movie.
‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ releases on October 18, 2019.
