Zombieland: Double Tap Offers Nostalgia

The newbie who rates the most screen time is Zoey Deutch's Madison, a vapid, juicy-suit wearing mallrat whose characterization recalls an element of Zombieland that has aged poorly - namely, its suggestion that Columbus was on his way to becoming what we'd now call an incel before the plague struck. The film's other airheard, Avan Jogia's Berkeley, is a ponytailed troubadour who persuades the smitten Little Rock to accompany him to Babylon, a rumored pacifist commune that has remained inexplicably untouched by the zombie uprising.

Also new is Rosario Dawson as Nevada - she doesn't want to get more specific than that - an Elvis-obsessed survivor who runs a neon-lit shrine/hotel in the badlands near Graceland.

Harrelson plays Tallahassee in the film, set in a post-apocalyptic world. In the opening moments, Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) informs us of some new zombies wandering America. To the filmmakers' credit, they change things up a notch. "In the original draft Tallahassee was really excited when he came across [the T-800s], what were then called "Super Zombies", as a result of it was his cause for dwelling was type of his spark was lit once more". Columbus and Wichita are now in a cozy romantic relationship, and Little Rock has grown into late adolescence, with all the restlessness and craving for independence that that entrails - er, entails.

The film isn't afraid to have some fun and poke fun at the genre over the last decade.

Have you ever wondered if Zombieland and The Walking Dead existed in the same universe? "But I think we all had so much fun making this one, we'd be really lucky to get to return to Zombieland". Honestly, the mid-credits scene is where the real action lies and, whisper it, might be one of the best extended sequences in the entire franchise. "One person's life isn't just a comedy or just drama; people experience all of the above all of the time throughout their day and week and year and life". Here's what happens in case you missed it. One scene took a perfectly fun and enjoyable film and ruined it.

The Hollywood star said his first response to the script was "has it come to this?". It hurts to say that this scene alone left a sour taste upon leaving the theater.

Families all have their own problems.

Are you planning to watch Zombieland: Double Tap in theaters?

The director revealed that as they acquired caught up in different initiatives within the time after releasing the primary Zombieland, drafts stored being made. Unfortunately, there's just too much of the same formula despite the nostalgia at hand.
