Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse

Never doubt a scout! Paramount Pictures has unleashed the first very red band trailer for Christopher Landon's Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, previously known as Scouts vs Zombies before the longer title change. Tye Sheridan leads a young cast of nerdy Boy Scouts who have to take on a town full of zombies with a stripper cocktail waitress at their side. The cast includes Halston Sage, Logan Miller, Elle Evans, Lukas Gage, and Joey Morgan. This is actually the first time a red band trailer has been utilized to its fullest extent, with a sh*tload of nudity and violence and gore and everything else. I will say this looks fun, albeit a bit cheesy but I might actually check it out. More crazy zombie mayhem, why not?

Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one badass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they’ll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead. Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, previously known as just Scouts vs. Zombies, is directed by American filmmaker Christopher Landon (of Burning Palms, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones previously). The screenplay is written by Emi Mochizuki and Carrie Lee Wilson, plus Christopher Landon and Lona Williams. Paramount will release Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse in theaters + VOD starting October 30th.

Looks like it could be the next Zombieland (alas, minus someone like Harrelson), i.e. a lot of fun.

Yup, it's hard to replace Harrelson ...

When will this zombie fad fade for fucks sake. This looks like it will have some laughs but it felt soulless.

Higgens on Aug 20, 2015


I see what you did there.....but honestly, I feel like this might be half decent. You can tell me I told you so, though, if this turns out to be a piece of shit.

Like wise.

Higgens on Aug 20, 2015


Zombie movies have been around for decades. If you don't like then then don't watch them. I don't watch romantic comedies but you don't see me asking when the "fad" will stop. You don't like them then good for you. Other people do. Thank god we live in a world where other people's tastes aren't ignored because of d-bags like you

Are you trying to say there is not a pop culture zombie fad going on right now? I dont mind a zombie flick or show here or there. There is a thing called over saturation and zombies suffer from it.

I thought I saw Blake from Workaholics

This looks crazy in a good way. Could be a fun watch.

David Diaz on Aug 20, 2015


I say yes. Anything zombie and awkward teenagers is my jam.

Huck PS on Aug 20, 2015


Hell Yeah! The nod to The Thing was nice...

Nash on Aug 20, 2015


Mindless fun, what else can one say?

shiboleth on Aug 20, 2015


Woah. I was not expected this to look all that great, but damn...I think this should be a freaking kick ass fun movie! Much like ZOMBIELAND. ( . ) ( . )'

DAVIDPD on Aug 20, 2015


I don't think those are real...

Jedi on Aug 20, 2015


Good comedy slowmos, this will go in my winter pile.

Carpola on Aug 20, 2015

Wasn't buying it until all those damn cat eyes. Looks like a fun watch.

grimjob on Aug 20, 2015


At first I thought :meh!! But dammit this I want to see! Looks über funny.... On my list!

ari smulders on Aug 21, 2015


I thought it looked terrible at first but I got on board starting with the cat paws.
