Because the world can’t get enough of zombies, Columbia pictures decided to make a sequel to the 2009 film, Zombieland. The sequel, premiering almost exactly a decade later, Zombieland: Double Tap finally released the first trailer. Fans can expect plenty of badass zombie fighting, smart comedy, some new zombie killers, and heartfelt family moments. Check out the trailer below!

The Trailer Shows Promise

The trailer begins with a reminder that the cast has grown up, and now all hold Academy Award nominations under their belts. Each of the returning main cast members has Oscar nominations, and, in Emma Stone’s case, a win. After showing off their nominations, the trailer immediately jumps into the zombie killing fun. And this time, it’s at the White House. The squad seems to settle into the White House for some “family” time, scootering down the big halls and celebrating Christmas.

Eventually, and to the delight of Stone’s character, they’re back on the move. The main conflict appears to be Abigail Breslin’s character running off with a pot-smoking boy. (As if Woody Harrelson, notorious stoner, hasn’t gotten a stash in a post-apocalyptic world.) While Breslin is off with him, the gang recruits a new girl, played by Zoey Deutch. Stone’s apparent jealousy over Eisenberg and Deutch’s characters could mean trouble for the romantic tension between the pair in the first film.

What We Expect From Zombieland: Double Tap

The first movie was a fun exploration of the zombie genre. The cast is what made it especially exciting, with chemistry amongst each character. Not to mention Bill Murray, living amongst the zombies. Murray is also on the cast list for the sequel, so we can expect some more hilarity from him. Zombieland manages to highlight the joys of living in a lonely world and clings on to feelings of family, hope, and friendship. This builds on themes from the first movie, where the cast overcomes their distrust and fear to find connection in each other.

Based on this new trailer, we can expect a similar thrill ride in Zombieland: Double Tap. The characters strike a nice balance between the personalities showcased in the first film but allowing for modest growth. If the first film focuses on surviving, this film seems to be about actually living in a land full of the dead. Despite this sequel premiering a whole decade after the original, the cast’s growing popularity only has us more excited to see them back in action.
