Watch: Official UK Trailer for 'The Girl With All The Gifts' Adaptation
"She saved me, and you're still afraid of her?" Whoa! Where did this come from? Warner Bros in the UK has debuted a trailer for an adaptation of a book called The Girl With All The Gifts. The best way to describe this would be to call it a post-apocalyptic zombie movie meets the X-Men, with a young girl who has a special ability. She seems to be the best hope for the human race in a world overrun by the living dead. The movie stars Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close and Paddy Considine. There are some fantastic shots in this trailer, and it sets up the story in a very thrilling way that makes me intrigued to find out more. I'd never heard of this before seeing the trailer, and now I'm more than interested. See below.
Here's the first UK trailer for Colm McCarthy's The Girl With All The Gifts, direct from WB's YouTube:
A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie. At an army base in rural England, children being studied 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 favourite 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. Directed by English filmmaker Colm McCarthy (of Outcast, "Peaky Blinders", "Sherlock", "Doctor Who"), adapted by Mike Carey from his own novel of the same name. Opens in the UK this September, but the movie doesn't have any US release date. Thoughts?
