10 Apocalypse Movies to Watch With Happy (or at Least Not Totally Depressing) Endings

Current events notwithstanding, Hollywood rather adores imagining the apocalypse on the big screen. Many doomsday movies end with total destruction; that rogue planet is just gonna go ahead and vaporize Earth, or those zombies are just gonna take over forever. But sometimes, filmmakers do find little rays of sunshine…Read more...

Box Office: ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Tops ‘Joker,’ ‘Zombieland’

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is on track to give Disney another first place finish after scoring $12.5 million in Friday’s domestic ticket sales. If estimates hold, the Angelina Jolie-led film should finish the weekend with about $38 million — well below earlier forecasts but enough to top holdover “Joker” and fellow newcomer “Zombieland: Double Tap.” […]

Early Script for ‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ Had a Hilariously Tragic ‘Ghostbusters’ Reunion and Joe Pesci

Zombieland: Double Tap is in theaters now, bringing back Woody Harrelson, Jessie Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin for more zombie apocalypse action. It’s been 10 years since the original movie hit theaters, but writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (the duo behind the Deadpool franchise) were hired almost immediately to write the sequel. Since it took a decade to finally get this movie finished, the script went through plenty of changes as time passed, and one of those changes resulted ...

Box Office: ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Flying Low With $35 Million Opening

Angelina Jolie’s “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is heading for an opening weekend of about $35 million at 3,790 North American locations — significantly below forecasts, early estimates showed on Friday. The fantasy sequel should still win the domestic weekend box office handily, denying Joaquin Phoenix’s “Joker” a third consecutive victory. “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” will […]

‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ Director Ruben Fleischer and Star Jesse Eisenberg on the Sequels’ Long Road to the Big Screen

It’s been ten years since Ruben Fleischer ’s Zombieland was the breakout surprise of October 2009 and, believe it or not, the sequel is finally here. Those who followed the rumors in the intervening decade must have felt that Zombieland: Double Tap was never going to happen; despite the obvious enthusiasm from star Jesse Eisenberg and the rest of the cast, the production delays, casting concerns, and screenwriter turnover made it tough to imagine a sequel ever seeing the light of day. B...

‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ Clip: The New Guys Are Still Learning Jesse Eisenberg’s Rules

It’s been 10 years since the events of Zombieland, and as that zombie comedy showed, it’s not easy surviving in an apocalyptic wasteland. But one of the ways that Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone‘s gang lived so long in Zombieland: Double Tap was by following Columbus’s (Eisenberg) hard line rules for surviving the zombie apocalypse. The title of the sequel spells out one of those rules, but in the latest Zombieland: Double Tap clip we get to learn one more rule...

Movie Mixtape: 6 Zombie Movies to Watch After You See ‘Zombieland: Double Tap’

There are more zombie movies than there were zombies in the original Night of the Living Dead. Is that true? Feels like it. It’s a genre so over-saturated that its longevity resembles its slobbering, brain-hungry baddies. There’s a palpable relentlessness to it, as though the genre itself pushes back whenever anyone announces its demise. Then there’s Zombieland, the 2009 film that decided to have fun both with the natural superiority of human beings over former human beings and our half-century...

‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ Hopes to Recapture Raunchy Zombie Magic, 10 Years Later

Audiences may have a few questions about the sequel to 2009’s hit “Zombieland,” which opens Friday.

‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ Review: A Wonderful Cast Keeps This Sequel Mostly Fresh

Zombieland: Double Tap , like its 2009 predecessor, is a triumph of casting and style over substance. As the original was, Double Tap has the slick sheen of the highest-end marketing campaign, looking polished and buffed even as it depicts the blood-soaked world in which a zombie apocalypse has taken over and a few human stragglers fight their way towards survival. Double Tap manages to succeed even mildly thanks largely to its core cast members, who charm their way through a script tha...

Zombieland: Double Tap Is Exactly the Film You Think It Is

When Zombieland opened in 2009 it felt fresh. The meta, comedy spin on the zombie genre kicked several tried and true formulas in the pants and the film went on to be a huge success. Ten years later, Zombieland: Double Tap does all the same things the original did. And that’s pretty much it. The result is a suitably…Read more...

Film Review: ‘Zombieland: Double Tap’

The zombies have evolved in “Zombieland: Double Tap”; the comedy not so much.

How the 10-Year Wait for Zombieland: Double Tap Changed Everything

If a Zombieland sequel had come out less than 10 years after the original film, it would have been a very different movie, in terms of story but also quality. Over time people get older, Hollywood’s sensibilities change, and maybe some of your once up-and-coming actors win Oscars. A lot can happen in 10 years, and all…Read more...
