The Poster For ‘Zombieland 2’ Dropped And Fans Are Hyped With The Throwback Design
Rumors of a Zombieland sequel have been swirling for years but the film will finally be released later this year and the original cast of Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin are back.
The original movie was released a DECADE ago which is almost unfathomable to me. It really doesn’t seem like it was that long ago when I saw it in the theaters. Leaving that movie, my biggest problem was the screen time length. It was only 88-minutes! That’s shorter than an episode of Sherlock on the BBC.
Zombieland quickly went on to become a cult classic and fans were shouting for a sequel at anyone who’d listen. Now, the first poster for Zombieland: Double Tap just hit the Internet and everyone’s stoked.
Sony Pictures went with a ’10 Year Challenge’ caption, an obvious nod to the recent viral meme that had everyone thinking Facebook was out to steal our data through machine learning.
The poster wasn’t the only Zombieland: Double Tap news of the day. THR is also reporting that Rosario Dawson is joining the Zombieland 2 cast. And a quick perusal of the film’s IMDB page shows that Bill Murray is listed as well as Dan Aykroyd. According to THR, the plot will center around the original cast from 10-years ago fighting a new wave of zombies who have all evolved in the past decade.
Fans on Twitter seem pretty stoked about this Rosario Dawson + poster news, and rightfully so.
The new poster is EXTREMELY similar to the first with a few noticeable differences like outfits, the actors aging, Emma Stone holding a gun instead of a chainsaw, and Abigail Breslin with a gun instead of a bat.
There’s also what appears to be some sparks in front of Woody Harrelson which seems noticeable enough to the point that it wouldn’t be there unless there was a reason down the line for it to be there, so we’ll have to wait and see on that.
Zombieland: Double Tap hits theaters October 11, 2019 and it’s being directed by Ruben Fleischer who made Sony’s Venom. I recently watched Venom on a trans-Atlantic flight and it was quite possibly one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen in my entire damn life, so I’m hoping this director is better than that film.
