You know what, I will be the first to admit that I did not expect much from this horror/gangster sort of mash-up at first, but boy was I wrong! I thought the film would be average at best, but now that the first red-band trailer has landed, I am more than happy to eat my words!
Man this looks bloody awesome! The red-band trailer for director Matthias Hoene’s Cockneys vs Zombies is everything you’d expect and more. There is tons of violence and blood-shed, but it is the hilarious one-liners and cockney rhyming slang which make this trailer so much fun. There is far too much good stuff to talk about here, so my advise is to simply watch the trailer. Do as I say, what are you mut ‘n’ jeff???
Cockneys vs Zombies is directed by Matthias Hoene (Beyond the Rave), and Severance screenwriter James Moran is on writing duties here along with Lucas Roche. The cast includes the gorgeous Michelle Ryan, alongside Alan Ford, Rasmus Hardiker, Georgia King, Harry Treadaway, Honor Blackman and Richard Briers. The film arrives in the UK on 31st August.
Cockneys vs Zombies is the story of Andy (Harry Treadaway) and Terry (Rasmus Hardiker): two hapless cockney brothers who try to save their grandad’s (Alan Ford) care home by robbing a bank. At the same time, a virus sweeps across East London turning all the inhabitants into flesh eating zombies. Faced with hordes of undead zombies, the challenge is to rescue a home full of tough old folks, escape with the loot, and get out of London alive!
