Hey guys, not long now before one of the most eagerly awaited movies in horror cinema history hits the big screen, and the multimedia bonanza is starting.
The first links we've got for you, hot of the press, are for a Romero tribute clip. Featured in the clip are George A. Romero, John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy), Eli Roth (Cabin Fever), Clive Barker (Hellraiser) and Dennis Hopper.
It's a bit kiss-ass, but what the hell, it has been a long time. Keep your eyes open in particular for the 'coffee zombie' at the end, he bought a big smile to my face.
And here's a few fresh screen shots, to get the juices flowing.
George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead is the acclaimed director’s long-awaited return to the horror genre he invented, beginning with the seminal Night of the Living Dead and continuing with Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead. In this new tale, Romero creates a harrowing vision of a modern-day world where the walking dead roam an uninhabited wasteland and the living try to lead normal lives behind the walls of a fortified city. A new society has been built by a handful of enterprising, ruthless opportunists who live in the towers of a skyscraper, high above the hard-scrabble existence on the streets below. But outside the city walls, an army of the dead is evolving. Inside, anarchy is on the rise. With the very survival of the city at stake, a group of hardened mercenaries is called into action to protect the living from an army of the dead. George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead is written and directed by Romero and stars Simon Baker, Dennis Hopper, Asia Argento, Robert Joy and John Leguizamo.
