Zombieland Double Tap Zombies

It’s been 10 years since Zombieland hit theaters. The fact that the horror comedy made $102.3 million at the box office on a budget of $23.6 million should have meant a sequel got fast-tracked, but it took far longer than expected to come together. But here we are, a decade later, with all four of the primary cast members now Oscar nominees, and it’s time to return to the post-apocalyptic world where zombies have taken over everything. And believe it or not, there are some new zombies waiting to be discovered.

Zombieland: Double Tap will bring back some of the same old brain-hungry zombies from the first movie, but many of them now have their own classification based on their behavior. Beyond that, there’s one new zombie that really poses a threat to Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin, and they’re not nearly as easy to dispatch with as the others. Find out more about the Zombieland Double Tap zombies below. Read More »
