Lupita Nyong’o has already made her mark in Hollywood at just 36-years-old. She won an Academy Award in 2014 for her work in 12 Years a Slave. She also starred in Black Panther (one of 2018’s most successful films) and Jordan Peele’s latest masterpiece, Us.
And while she’s known mostly for her intense/serious roles, her upcoming film ‘Little Monsters‘ promises to add a little humor to her resume.
The trailer features Nyong’o as the eternally optimistic elementary school teacher Miss Caroline, who is overseeing a field trip to a petting zoo. The day starts out normally and seems to be going well. Then, the zombies arrive. Just next door to the petting zoo is an army base where a series of experiments have gone awry, creating a zombie virus that spreads quick.
Things get incredibly silly and just a little scary from there. This movie will hit theaters in the UK on November 5. It’ll hit theaters in the states on November 15.
You probably know Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins from ‘The Hobbit‘ trilogy, or maybe you know him from his hilarious scenes in Love Actually. Either way, it doesn’t matter. You are about to know him for something else.
Freeman is headlining his own zombie movie. He stars in ‘Cargo‘ as a father trying to save his child during a zombie apocalypse. This movie is actually based on the 2013 short film of the same name. The short, which can be viewed right below the trailer, has over 14 million views on YouTube.
“Stranded in rural Australia in the aftermath of a violent pandemic, an infected father, Andy (Freeman), desperately seeks a new home for his infant child, and a means to protect her from his own changing nature. The trailer provides a first look at the terrifying new world Andy and his child are struggling to survive in, as well as a reason for hope and why we remain human in a world overtaken by the dead.”
This film will be released in the United States on Netflix May 18, 2018. Check out the trailer below…
