The trailer for the remake of the classic zombie flick has just been released on the Apple site. I swore we had a thread for this, but I guess not. Well, if you've seen the original it's basically just a revisioning of the 1978 classic. The story and the effects have been updated for the New Millenium. While it's worrying quite a few classic 'DotD' fans, it looks pretty cool to me. Love the shot of 'Sheriff Tom Savini' in the trailer. Here's a couple plot outlines, and the link to the trailer on the site. It will be in theaters, March 26th.
As the United States is turned upside-down by a strange plague-like event in which millions of corpses walk the earth as blood-thirsty zombies (with the recently-deceased that the zombies kill usually returning as zombies themselves, multiplying their number), a small group of survivors of the onslaught, which include a nurse and a police officer try to find shelter and protection within a massive shopping mall in the mid-sized city of Everett, WA. What they don't reckon on is that the zombies still have some sort of residual memory, and *everyone* loves going to the mall, right? Realizing that their time is running out, they decide to make another attempt at flight, to a presumably un-zombie-infested island, but to do so, they'll have to get past thousands of zombies in-between...http://www.apple.com/trailers/universal/dawnofthedead/A young female nurse named Anna is caught in the middle of the chaos as zombies begin taking over the world and attacking the living. She escapes into the streets and is rescued by a black police officer named Kenneth. Together they find shelter in a mall along with a group of other survivors. For a while everything is ok, but pretty soon they start running out of food, the power goes out, and the dead keep finding ways to break through their defenses. Realizing they're sitting ducks, they make a plan to head for an island by using two armored mall shuttle busses to get across the sea of zombies.
MTFBWY and HH!!
