Watch: Gory Red Band 'Cockneys vs Zombies' Trailer Gushes Blood
"Abercrombie & Zombie!" Nothing like a bit of bloody, gory, violent zombie fun to start the week. This new red band trailer for British zombie-comedy Cockneys vs Zombies first debuted last week (via EW), but we thought it was good enough to still feature. Matthias Hoene directs this London-set zombie flick, which reminds me a lot of Shaun of the Dead, but with its own perks. It's basically about a group of amateur bank robbers and foul-mouthed geriatrics who have to fight their way through a bunch of London undead. And I think that's Alan Ford, aka Brick Top from Snatch, being quite the badass. Looks like a bloody lot of fun!
This city ain't big enough for the both of 'em! A few London east-enders fight their way out of a zombie-infested downtown, led by an unlikely gang of amateur bank robbers and foul-mouthed plucky pensioners.
Cockneys vs Zombies was directed by British filmmaker Matthias Hoene (@matthiashoene), of commercials and a film titled Beyond the Rave previously. The screenplay is by James Moran (Severance, "Torchwood", Tower Block) and Lucas Roche (editor on Beyond the Rave). This will first premiere at Film4's FrightFest. Cockneys vs Zombies hits UK theaters in August, and will play at Fantastic Fest in the US this September.
