Must Watch: First Trailer for 'Z for Zachariah' Starring Margot Robbie
"There's gotta be an explanation…" Yes! Get a look at one of my favorite sci-fi features from Sundance this year. The first trailer for Z for Zachariah has debuted, the next film from Compliance director Craig Zobel, adapted from an old sci-fi novel by Robert C. O'Brien. Margot Robbie stars, playing one of the only survivors in a post-apocalyptic world, existing day-by-day in a valley untouched by radiation. One day she comes across Loomis, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor. Months later they come across Caleb, played by Chris Pine. This trailer does show quite a bit, so if you want to go into this fresh better not watch. But I really love this film and how many layers there are to it, so I say watch anyway. Just make sure you get a ticket to see it.
Here's the first official trailer for Craig Zobel's Z for Zachariah, in high def from Apple:
Z for Zachariah is directed by Craig Zobel (Concussion) and written by relatively unknown writer Nissar Modi, based on Robert C. O'Brien's book of the same name. Ann Burden (Margot Robbie) is completely alone. The world as she once knew it is gone, ravaged by a nuclear war that has taken everyone from her. For the past year, she has lived in a remote valley with no evidence of any other survivors. But the smoke from a distant campfire shatters Ann's solitude and soon two strangers (Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor) enter her valley. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and was one of our favorites films this year. Grindstone Entertainment will release Z for Zachariah in select theaters starting August 21st this summer.
