Trailer Talk: Zombieland 2: Double Tap. By Megan Williams.
During a zombie apocalypse, we’ve learnt to check the back seats, wear a seatbelt, don’t be a hero and always double tap. These are rules that have been taught to us via the 2009 hit ‘Zombieland’.
Now, 10 years later, the gang of four are back once again to guard us through the post-apocalyptic world.
‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ sees the return of Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin as the dysfunctional ‘family’ of survivors, as they deal with evolved zombies, new survivors and being a family…sort of.
Releasing a sequel 10 years after its previous, and first, entry is extremely risky: what if this one has lost everything that made the original great? However, I don’t think this will be the case for ‘Double Tap’.
The lead actors are still funny and they bring a charm to the film that wouldn’t work if any of the actors were replaced. The humour hasn’t changed either; just because the characters have gotten to know each other well doesn’t mean that they’re always nice to each other!
I loved 2009’s ‘Zombieland’ and I’m definitely looking forward to ‘Double Tap’. I hope it can repeat the success of its predecessor.
Now, where’s my Twinkies…?
‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ is in cinemas 18th October 2019.
Talks of a Zombieland sequel began before the release of the first installment, with Reese and Wernick suggesting ideas and the cast voicing their desire to make a second film. However, the project languished in development hell for several years before finally being confirmed in July 2018. The four main stars and Fleischer all signed on that month, while additional cast members—including Dawson, Middleditch and Wilson—joined in early 2019. Filming took place from January to March 2019. Produced by Columbia Pictures, it is scheduled to be released in the United States on October 18, 2019, by Sony Pictures.
