Glenn Close battles zombies in a new trailer for The Girl With All the Gifts

Why hello there, trailer for THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, how you doin’? You know, it’s been awhile since I’ve enjoyed an honest-to-goodness zombie flick and hot damn if this film doesn’t look like it could be the diamond in the rough that I’ve been waiting for. Directed by Colm McCarthy and based on the novel of the same name by Mike Carey, who also wrote the screenplay, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS looks like a fresh and frenzied take on the zombie apocalypse. Not convinced? I understand. However, as your attorney I highly recommend that you give this new trailer a look before you resign yourself to passing on what could be one of the most original films of the genre in years. Here, I’ll even go so far as to tease you with the plot before you press Play.

In the near future: humanity has been all but destroyed by a fungal disease that eradicates free will and turns its victims into flesh eating “hungries”. Only a small group of children seem immune to its effects. At an army base in rural England, this group of unique children are being studied and subjected to cruel experiments. But one little girl, Melanie, stands out from the rest.

When the base falls, Melanie escapes along with Miss Justineau (Gemma Arterton), Sergeant Parks (Paddy Considine), Dr. Caldwell (Glenn Close) and two other soldiers. 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.

Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? Aren’t you glad you decided to give it a go? I knew it. No need to thank me. I’m just here to bring you all the goods!

THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS stars Gemma Arterton, Paddy Considine, Glenn Close, and will introduce Sennia Nanua as Melanie.

The film will be hitting DirectTV on January 26th, 2017, and will then turn up in theaters and On Demand starting on February 24th, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: I don't know about you, but Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton are two ladies I'd like to have beside me in battle when the zombie apocalypse comes ... and it will.
