When the sequel to “Zombieland” premiered a few months ago with “Zombieland: Double Tap”, we made sure to cover it as a part of our Pop Culture Film and Television narratives because we really enjoyed that first film. The crop of trailers, special features and promotional posters that were posted can be examined by clicking HERE. I’m returning to the topic of this film as Sony Pictures has just released this on Digital platforms (with Blu-ray and DVD to follow) and in addition to this the first “10” minutes of the film are online for you to enjoy. Check out said footage down below and then stick around the post to examine the premise, casting and official theatrical art. I’ve even embedded codes for you to order this on Amazon.com if you are so inclined.
The Premise: After the events of the first film, Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock move to the American heartland as they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family.
Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee
Jesse Eisenberg as Columbus
Emma Stone as Wichita / Krista
Abigail Breslin as Little Rock
Zoey Deutch as Madison
Avan Jogia as Berkeley
Rosario Dawson as Nevada
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Without posting any spoilers to the overall film I will say that I found it to be quite an enjoyable continuation of the storyline. Many of us are watching “The Walking Dead” to get our zombie apocalypse fix and sometimes that series is an arduous viewing experience. With “Zombieland: Double Tap” there is a lot of zombie fighting action but also plenty of tongue in cheek humor which adds to the appeal. If you order the film be sure to keep watching when the credits roll as there is a fun scene during the mid-credits. Will this affirm a third installment? I’d like to think so. Now it’s time to start counting down to the brand new 2020 year. See you soon.
