I recall Ving Rhames saying in an interview around the time of the Dawn of the Dead remake’s release that he wasn’t a fan of horror movies. He must have since discovered an affinity for zombie flicks because Zombie Apocalypse marks his third go-round with the living dead.

Now here’s the part that might be most surprising to you. The Asylum is behind this particular Zombie Apocalypse. The film is being touted as possibly their biggest to date, which should be apparent since Ving Rhames could very well be the biggest name actor the mockbuster masters have gotten to star in one of their films yet.

Months after a zombie plague has wiped out 90 percent of the American population, a small group of survivors fight their way cross-country to a rumored refuge on the island of Catalina.

The award-winning co-star of the Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead remakes leads Taryn Manning (Hustle & Flow), Lesley Ann Brandt (“Spartacus: Blood and Sand”), Johnny Pacar (“Make It or Break It”), and Eddie Steeples (“My Name is Earl”) into battle against the walking dead in this gore-soaked zomsploitation flick from writers Craig Engler and Brooks Peck and Species: The Awakening director Nick Lyon.

The Asylum has posted a slew of stills from the set, a few of which are shown below. Something about the sight of Ving Rhames pummeling the living dead with a sledgehammer as if he were a zombie-fighting John Henry brings a smile to my face.

The Asylum’s Zombie Apocalypse infects DVD shelves on December 27th. We’ll keep you posted on this one.

Flying Wolf! New Rampage Trailer Swoops In

Published

on

Last month, we shared the crazy-ass trailer for “The Rock vs Three Huge Animals” movie Rampage. And we were all surprised by how serious the movie looks.

Well if that trailer wasn’t enough to get you at least interested in watching titanic beasts curb-stomping entire cities, then maybe today’s new trailer will do the trick.

Give it watch below and then let us know what you think!

Rampage is directed by Brad Peyton and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The film hits theaters April 20.

Synopsis:
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators.

As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
