This looks like this would make a great double feature with John C. Reilly’s The Vampire’s Assistant. Zombieland stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin, along with cameos from Bill Murray, Amber Heard, and Mike White. The film opens on October 9th.

The red-band trailer makes the film look like a hoot, even for people like with only casual interest or familiarity with zombie genre (yes, that would be me).  Harrelson continues the bad-ass version of his screen persona, last seen earlier this year in Management with Jennifer Aniston.

And Emma Stone (always and forever known as “my girlfriend, Emma Stone”) is turning the geeky image last seen in The House Bunny into an altogether different direction as the protective older sister of Abigail Breslin (”little miss sunshine” is growing up fast!).  I missed Adventureland in theatres earlier this spring, so I’m not familiar with Eisenberg, but from what I’ve seen he seems to have grown the pair he badly needed in that film (at least as far as the trailer was concerned).
