(2019) (Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror/Comedy: Four non-infected survivors of a zombie apocalypse must contend with running into other fellow survivors as well as the introduction of mutant zombies who are faster, stronger and much more difficult to kill.
- It's been a decade since we last saw zombie apocalypse survivors Columbus (JESSE EISENBERG), Tallahassee (WOODY HARRELSON), Wichita (EMMA STONE), and her sister Little Rock (ABIGAIL BRESLIN) band together to form an unlikely family unit. Having now taken up residence in the long-abandoned but still secure White House, the four could easily live out their days there. But there's discord among the group, starting with Little Rock who hates that Tallahassee still treats her like a kid and longs to have a boyfriend. He, meanwhile, has developed a case of wanderlust. And while Columbus and Wichita are now a romantic couple, she isn't exactly thrilled that he's just proposed to her.
That comes to a head when the ladies leave without saying goodbye, but things look up for Columbus when he and Tallahassee run into fellow survivor but uber-flighty Madison (ZOEY DEUTCH) in a shopping mall. She returns with them to the White House and she and Columbus end up in bed, but that becomes complicated when Wichita returns and says that Little Rock has run off with pacifist beatnik Berkeley (AVAN JOGIA) for Graceland.
Realizing they need to go there to save her, Tallahassee and the rest find a working minivan and hit the road where they eventually run into Nevada (ROSARIO DAWSON) who's rescued Elvis' museum belongings and set up her own display, as well as Albuquerque (LUKE WILSON) and Flagstaff (THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH) who are just as adept at killing the zombies as everyone else.
But with Little Rock nowhere in sight, and with a new, faster and more dangerous breed of zombies now on the loose, the group realizes they must find her before it's too late.
