Arnold Schwarzenegger Fathers Zombie Daughter in 'Maggie' Trailer

March 25, 2015


"There is life with you, not with me." The idea of Arnold Schwarzenegger starring in a drama called Maggie where he attempts to care for his daughter (Abigail Breslin) as she slowly turns into a zombie sounded like a promising concept, but also with the potential to be disastrous. However, a trailer for the indie that premiered at TIFF last year has just arrived, and this looks surprisingly good. It's very somber and serious, and not in a way that seems insincere or laughable. This has the potential to be Schwarzenegger's best film since he returned to acting. At the very least, it's an original zombie story in a tired genre. Watch?

Here's the first trailer for Henry Hobson's Maggie from YouTube:


You can still check out some first look photos from Maggie right here.

Maggie is directed by commercial director and title sequence designer Henry Hobson, making his feature filmmaking debut with a script from debut screenwriter John Scott 3 which made the Black List in 2011. Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in the film as Wade, a Midwestern U.S. farmer who stays with his beloved teenage daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin of Little Miss Sunshine, New Year's Eve) as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic, flesh-eating zombie. Joely Richardson also stars in the film which premiered last year at the Toronto International Film Festival and the film hits limited theaters this summer May 8th. Interested?

Points for a seemingly original and dark story. Feared the worst when started watching this trailer. But it didn't look half bad, will def keep on following this and hoping for the best because of Ahrrnuld. I'm a bit worried tho, sounds and looks good by far, but it has all the potential to go south and badly.

The movie requires a ballsy ending. If I was directing, she wouldn't be cured and it would be a final showdown between father and daughter.

No showdowns please. This movie needs a calm and sad ending.

ProjectionistHP on Mar 25, 2015


Yeah sorry that's actually what I meant, not a fight or anything but a slow and painful process of Arnold having to build the courage to kill his own daughter (and then possibly himself from the grief). Or...they could go down an even darker path than that.

as I saw the title, I thought "damn Arnold goes zombie-all-alike too, but after watching the trailer ... not bad

Looks like a reboot of Commando

I was hoping for ridiculous zombie killing and awesome/cheesy one liners, but this actually looks pretty damn good. I shall see it!

GRIM on Mar 25, 2015

what no one ever realized is he was always a great actor

Hmm, that actually looked pretty good.

John Doe on Mar 25, 2015


Excellent. I was hopeful when this first broke, and the trailer does not disappoint. Definitely looking forward to it!

I'm really surprised they didn't let Arnold say a word until the very end. Gives it a more creepy feeling that way. For some reason, I was hoping he would have a different accent in this. 😉 Looks amazing.

This actually looks like it could be a winner for the big man. Glad to see someone actually offer him a role where he doesn't just blow shit up and say one liners. Happy to see him changing it up.

Looks similar to The Last Of Us, Arnold's got a beard too..!!

JP on Mar 26, 2015


I hate to be the only negative nellie here but it seems the walking Dead could tell this story better in 20 minutes than the (no doubt) 3 hours this will take.

Charles Knowlton on Mar 26, 2015


What an amazing trailer !!! Wow !!!
