Ten years ago, Zombieland came out and revitalized the zombie genre in brand new ways. Not only was the film a funny romp with an A-list cast including Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin, but it also introduced new lore to the zombie mythos, making this a post-apocalyptic movie about a world you might just want to live in if you could live with these rascals and their eccentric rules. The film felt like lightning in a bottle, the perfect alchemy of laughs and tenderness, and now the team is back hoping to capture that magic again. The first trailer for Zombieland: Double Tap looks like the film is here to deliver everything you’d expect in a Zombieland sequel and more. This thing is loaded with surprises and seems like a ton of fun.

The core cast is all back, this time infiltrating and living in the White House after the zombie invasion presumably killed anything resembling a functional government. The trailer is quick to remind us that all of these actors are Oscar nominees—or winners, in the case of Stone—so we know we’re working with top-caliber talent, which is a funny juxtaposition for all of the silly fun going on. Here’s the full synopsis:

A decade after Zombieland became a hit film and a cult classic, the lead cast (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone) have reunited with director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) and the original writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool) for Zombieland 2: Double Tap.

In the sequel, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, these four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.

Zombieland: Double Tap also starts Zoey Deutch, Rosario Dawson, Avan Jogia, Luke Wilson, and Thomas Middleditch. The film opens on October 18, 2019, so we don’t have long to wait.
