‘Maggie’ Trailer: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Zombie Family Drama

Posted in The Screening Room by - March 25, 2015

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Hollywood comeback hasn’t been as momentous as expected, but the Maggie trailer shows the aging action star take a premise we’ve seen done to death (pun intended) and give it a dramatic spin. 

Maggie stars Abigail Breslin as the titular character who slowly succumbs to a zombie virus as her father (Schwarzenegger) refuses to leave her to die. The trailer is below via YouTube:

Admittedly, this looks to be some of the more dramatic work Schwarzenegger has done, and it looks pretty intense as well. 

The official plot summary is:

Directed by Henry Hobson, the story follows Arnold Schwarzenegger setting out to protect his infected daughter (Abigail Breslin) when a zombie epidemic is threatening the world. It looks to be a refreshingly small-scale, compelling drama with the zombie aspect simply a backdrop, and we’ll find out soon if that’s the case. Also starring Joely Richardson, Laura Cayouette, and Dana Gourrier, check out the trailer below.

The film will premiere at Tribeca Film Festival, with its wide release on May 8th
