Tongue-in-lacerated-cheek post-apocalyptic comedies that work don’t come along too often, which is why the Zombieland 2 Double Tap DVD, Blu-ray and digital release date (UK details below) is worth penciling into your dear broken world diary. Its got a great cast and looks set to build off the success of the first film, so it should be one to catch either to buy or rent on iTunes and Amazon Prime Video.
Jessie Eisenberg (Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice) was the lead character for Zombieland, but this time around it looks like the focus will be shot gun spread across the four main characters, as you can see from the poster for the film above. In all fairness the first movie had similar imagery of the cast in the posters, but the story itself was led by Eisenberg’s Columbus character, who managed to bring the group together after a number of zombie near misses.Advertisement Woody Harrelson (War For The Planet Of The Apes) reruns as Tallahassee, Emma Stone (Birdman) is back as Wichita, who revealed her real name to be Krista at the end the opening film, and Abigail Breslin (August: Osage County) plays her younger sister Little Rock. They’re joined by new additions to the Zombieland cast with Rosario Dawson (Wonder Woman: Bloodlines), Zooey Deutch, Luke Wilson and Thomas Middleditch getting in on the survivor action.
The plot picks up with the four of them not long after the last-ditch escape from Pacific Playground amusement park. Now even tougher zombie-slayers, they manage to take the White House, but as with any semi-functional family setup there’s bound to be a few challenges in the early days and when Little Rock goes awol with a hippie hitchhiker they all need to saddle up and head out on a roadtrip to save her. However, with a new mutant zombie type to take on and other survivors out in the wilderness it’s going to push them to the edge of their double-tapping rules.
