One of the best zombie movies to come out in years is finally coming to the U.S. later this month, and we want to make sure you don’t miss it. It’s called The Girl With All The Gifts, and it’s got a new trailer.
Directed by Colm McCarthy and starring Paddy Considine, Glenn Close, and Gemma Arterton, the UK production opened there in September and bombed. Why? Zombie overkill maybe? Bad marketing? We don’t know. What we do know is that the movie is absolutely fantastic. But, because of its lack of success overseas, it’s getting dumped in the U.S.
So if you have DirectTV, it’ll be available on January 26. Then, on February 24, it’ll get a small theatrical run, as well as hitting digital download and on-demand.
To commemorate the release, Entertainment Weekly has a new trailer which you can watch at that link. But, if we’re being honest, it’s pretty similar to the original trailer, just with more spoilers. So click there for the new one if you want to see more footage—or if you didn’t catch it last year, watch this better, older trailer.
If you need even more convincing to seek out this film once it’s released, check out our glowing reviews of both The Girl With All the Gifts movie as well as the book by M.R. Carey that it’s based on.
