Zombieland – The New Age Of The Zombies

The release of Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead and Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later revitalized the zombie film genre by empowering the undead with a trait not seen in earlier movies: their zombies could run. Fast-moving zombies appealed to the tastes of modern moviegoers accustomed to horror films with a tighter pace and heightened tension. Both films were hugely successful. Edgar Wright’s film, Shaun of the Dead, released about the same time, added another new twist to the genre: humor. First time director Ruben Fleischer, working from a screenplay written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, took these two new elements and fused them to create Zombieland.

Zombieland’s characters are identified with place names that relate to them, rather than real names sims 3 + all expansions kickass. The plot revolves around college student Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and his attempt to get home to his parents in a zombie-ridden world. He soon encounters Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), then Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). Harrelson’s performance completely outshines the others – until the four reach Hollywood and encounter Bill Murray, who plays himself. Film critic Roger Ebert credits Murray’s cameo in Zombieland with the “single biggest laugh” of the year.

Some zombie film fans have criticized the tonal shift during the interlude at the Murray mansion from horror/comedy to something close to romantic/comedy, as the focus turns to the developing relationship between Columbus and Wichita.

The Zombieland stars have expressed interest in returning to their roles, and the film’s creators are said to be actively searching for another stellar cameo appearance.
