28th Apr 05
"They're coming to get you, Barbara!"
This is the one we're all waiting for, George A. Romero's return to the genre he created with a brand new new zombie film, Land of the Dead (oh how sweet those words seem so close to each other) and the days are literally slipping by until it's relelase in only two months time.
And now finally! The trailer has appeared on the official website www.landofthedeadmovie.net/, allowing us our first glimpse of a new Romero zombie film, as well as a new synopsis and a gallery of 3 (yup, count'em - 3) photos.
But it's not the photos, or the synopsis that we're bothered about - it's the trailer that we all really want to see, so what are you waiting for? Click here to see some beautiful footage, which also includes scenes and dialogue of Night, Dawn and Day, as well as giving us the first chance to see Land of the Dead stars Asia Argento and Dennis Hopper and heaps of very impressive looking zombies!
"Zombies, man. They creep me out."
The trailer will apparently be screened in front of XXX: State of the Union which is released in the US this week. The film will be released in the US on June 24th, and is pencilled in for a UK release around July 29th, although there is a current (not yet confirmed) rumour that Land of the Dead will be the surprise film at London's mini-FrightFest on May 28th.
George Romero's Land of the Dead (to give it its full official title) features a plot whereby the zombies have taken over the world and those humans still left alive are confined to a walled-in city that keeps out the corpse corps.
Anarchy rules the streets, with the wealthy insulated and living in fortified skyscrapers. The story revolves around a group of scavengers who must thwart an attempt to overthrow the city while the dead evolve from brainless slow-moving creatures into more advanced creatures.
