No explosions. No cheesy catchphrases. Are we even sure this is an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie?
Yet there he is in all of his bearded, brooding glory as he wanders post-apocalyptic America in the first trailer for Maggie. The film follows Schwarzenegger playing a father who in the wake of a zombie outbreak must attempt to care for his infected daughter (Abigail Breslin – Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland) as she slowly succumbs to the virus and the trailer hints that things do not turn out well. Everyone’s favorite terminator hasn’t had many chances to play a more reserved role so hopefully Maggie will turn out to be something of a success. The atmosphere and tone of the film looks quite bleak, similar to The Road or a more depressing Warm Bodies, and will hopefully bring something new to the zombie genre. Sadly there’s no word on an official release date but this could be one to keep an eye on.
