Zombieland Trailer and AICN Interview

The trailer for ZOMBIELAND is now up and looking smashing! Woody Harrelson plays Tallahassee, a zombie hunter in this horror-comedy from Sony Pictures. I was really interested in this movie before, but after seeing the trailer with Harrelson in action during the amusement park scenes has guaranteed my butt will be in the theatre come October.

The folks at AINT IT COOL NEWS also have an interview up: Quint talks with Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer

Here's how Fleisher describes the movie:

Ruben Fliescher: I like to think of it as MIDNIGHT RUN with zombies, the story of these two unlikely people that go on a road trip together. Woody Harrelson is this zombie-killing badass and then Jesse Eisenberg is this sort of wimpy coward and they have both managed to survive.

It takes place in a post apocalyptic zombie world, so it’s more along the lines of 28 DAYS LATER as opposed to the moment of outbreak. So they are just in this post apocalyptic zombie landscape, they meet up on the road, they end up traveling together and it’s a true buddy comedy with these opposite characters with Woody as our badass zombie killer and Jesse being the opposite, but they both manage to survive because of their unique traits. Like Woody can kill every zombie and Jesse puts together a collection of rules that have allowed him to survive using his smarts and his fear to his advantage.
