Margot Robbie has two suitors in the tense first Z for Zachariah trailer
Just recently, many festival favorites have begun releasing trailers. Over the last two days, we have seen debuts for both 99 HOMES and MACBETH and now we have Craig Zobel's Z FOR ZACHARIAH. The small film features only Margot Robbie, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Chris Pine in a tale of post-apocalyptic survival. But, this is not WORLD WAR Z or even I AM LEGEND. This is a much more intimate picture.
In the wake of a nuclear war, a young woman survives on her own, fearing she may actually be the proverbial last woman on earth, until she discovers the most astonishing sight of her life: another human being. A distraught scientist, he’s nearly been driven mad by radiation exposure and his desperate search for others. A fragile, imperative strand of trust connects them. But when a stranger enters the valley, their precarious bond begins to unravel.
Our own Chris Bumbray reviewed the film at Sundance and gave it a decent review. This trailer definitely is edited to make the film seem more intense than his review indicated, but I am intrigued by the casting here. Chiwetel Ejiofor is phenomenal in everything he does and I truly feel Chris Pine has some dramatic chops waiting to be revealed to the world. And Margot Robbie, is there anything this woman cannot do?
Z FOR ZACHARIAH opens in theaters on August 21st.
