Trailer for THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS Looks Unlike Any Zombie Film I've Seen Before
An awesome trailer has been released for a new film called The Girl With All The Gifts. This is a zombie thriller that looks unlike any other zombie movie that I've seen before. On top of it being a unique take on the zombie genre, it's also been getting positive reviews from people who got to see it at Fantastic Fest last year.
The Colm McCarthy-directed film is based on the novel of the same name written by M.R. Carey. The story is set in a zombie apocalypse in which society has collapsed, and the humans who survived are looking for a cure to the zombie plague. One of the main characters is a young girl who has the zombie virus, but has also managed to basically stay human, save for the craving of human flesh.
The movie has an impressive cast that includes Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton, Paddy Condidine, and Sennia Nanua as the zombie girl. Here's the full detailed synopsis:
The near future; humanity has been all but destroyed by a mutated fungal disease that eradicates free will and turns its victims into flesh-eating “hungries.” Only a small group of children seem immune to its effects.
At an army base in rural England, this group of unique children are being studied, subjected to cruel experiments by biologist Dr. Caldwell. Despite having been infected with the zombie pathogen that has decimated the world, these children retain normal thoughts and emotions. And while still being subject to the craving for human flesh that marks the disease these second- generation “hungries” are able to think and feel making them a vital resource in the search for a cure.
The children attend school lessons daily, guarded by the ever watchful Sergeant Parks. But one little girl, Melanie, stands out from the rest. Melanie is special. She excels in the classroom, is inquisitive, imaginative and loves her favorite teacher Miss Justineau.
When the base falls, Melanie escapes along with Miss Justineau, Sergeant Parks and Dr. Caldwell. Against the backdrop of a blighted Britain, Melanie must discover what she is and ultimately decide both her own future and that of the human race.
The Girl With the All the Gifts will be available to watch on DirecTV on January 26th. It will then be released in theaters and VOD platforms on February 24th.
