First clip from Maggie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin

Arnold Schwarzenegger's first foray into dramatic territory, MAGGIE, makes its world premiere tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival; to celebrate, the former Governator has shared a clip from the film with his Facebook fans. In the clip, which you can see below, Schwarzenegger has a serious chat with his undead daughter, played by Abigail Breslin. You'll see immediately that this isn't your typical Arnold fare.

y the time a necrotic viral pandemic spread cross-country to small town America and infected the film’s titular character, 16-year-old MAGGIE (ABIGAIL BRESLIN), authorities had established a protocol for patients infected with the deadly virus: they are removed from society and taken to special isolation wards to complete the agonizing and dangerous transformation into one of the walking dead. The authorities do not speak about what happens after that.

Wade Vogel (ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER) is not ready to give up his daughter. After weeks of searching for Maggie when she runs away following her diagnosis, Wade brings his daughter back to her home and family – stepmother, Caroline (JOELY RICHARDSON), and her two children--for whatever time may be left as the teenager begins an excruciatingly painful metamorphosis. 

Directed by Henry Hobson, MAGGIE hits theaters and VOD on May 8th.
