We are back folks. Back in a zombie world I really think movie viewers would ever get to experience again.
Zombieland: Double Tap brings back everyone’s favorite: Wichita, Little Rock, Columbus and most importantly, Tallahassee. Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg are all returning to their original roles. It is delightfully humorous how the trailer totes their respective award winning talents before ratcheting up the immense violence and premise.
The log line reads: “Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock move to the American heartland as they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors, and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family.”
But let’s get real here. Are we here for the plot? No.
Are we here for absurdness and fantastic characters? You betcha.
The squad is in the White House racing scooters, hosting Christmas parties, breaking lamps and playing twister. Then we meet Madison (not sure if that’s her “name” or where she is from…because she is dumb so she may not know the rules) played by Zoey Deutch. She is a superb klutz, the opposite of Wichita, which is sure to lend to some snarky Emma Stone which is always a good thing.
The plot begins to unfold that it’s a rescue missions for someone who doesn’t necessarily want to be rescued. We have Tallahassee being a lovable humbug and then there is the introduction of Rosario Dawson as Nevada…THEN IS THAT A MONSTER TRUCK RUNNING OVER ZOMBIES?
The ending to Zombieland: Double Tap’s premiere trailer seems to be poking again at itself again. The doppelganger in personalities is a nice bit between Luke Wilson’s unnamed character and Tallahassee…then Thomas Middleditch comes in takes it to another level.
I enjoyed Zombieland but admit to not being as staunch a fan as many others. Regardless, I am still excited for this.
