Magnet Releases Survival of the Dead Red Band Trailer

Finally the red band theatrical trailer has come for George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead, but honestly? We think it could use a bit more time in the oven as it’s pretty tame. Come on, guys! We need red in our red bands!

Magnet will be releasing the film in the US on April 30th via VOD, XBOX Live, Playstation, and Amazon and then follow that release with a limited theatrical run on May 28th.

Like its predecessors, Romero’s Survival of the Dead (reviews here and here) takes place in a desperate, nightmarish world where the dead walk the earth, relentlessly attacking the living. It is the story of Plum Island – a beautiful refuge whose isolation allows two powerful families to maintain a semblance of order in the wake of the zombie holocaust. But as the inhabitants slowly die off, the two clans become sharply divided: The O’Flynns believe that the undead must be destroyed without exception, while the Muldoons insist that afflicted loved ones be kept “alive” until a cure is found. The result is an escalating showdown with echoes of a classic Western stand-off that erupts in brutality and violence.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I’m expecting this to suck but will gladly eat my words if I’m wrong. Obviously not too many people have been impressed by it. Which does give me a glimmer of hope. They were so ecstatic about Land and moved the release date up on that one but it was nothing better than a DTV movie. Saying that now would be a compliment.

    This looks terrible and chances are that it will be too, but I’ll still see it. What does that say about me? I guess I’m just a die hard fan of Romero’s.

    • Uncle Creepy

      I’m not a fan of the trailer either. It’s lackluster at best which is unfortunate because the movie is actually good.

  • Terminal

    This looks great. I can’t wait.

    It’s Romero, gotta cheer Romero.

    Quick question though: On what planet do people actually believe entering your birth date prevents small children from watching trailers?

    • Terminal

      I read an article about that on the net, and there was one exec who hinted that it’s a futile attempt to prevent kids from seeing it, but that they do it because they have to.
