Talk about quickly having to reverse one’s opinion; apparently the zombie apocalypse genre has not yet been trampled into the ground (or maybe it just shouldn’t be a comedy?). After watching this trailer, I take back everything I said!
Colm McCarthy’s (Peaky Blinders, Sherlock, Doctor Who) adaptation of M.R. Carey’s dystopian story stars Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton, Paddy Considine and young Sennia Nanua as Melanie, whose immunity may be the key to fighting an infection that’s wiping out humanity. This teaser is positively riveting.
And not for nothing, but not a soul is carrying a barbed wire wrapped bat; that’s a big plus in my book.
Catch The Girl with All the Gifts on DIRECTV January 26th, and in theaters and On Demand February 24th.
