Need some zombies and gore to go with your Friday afternoon? Who doesn’t? IGN scored the first look at the UK red band trailer for the upcoming zombedy from Matthias Hoene, Cockneys vs. Zombies, and it delivers on all counts.
The movie, which is having its world premiere at Film4Frightfest on Thursday, August 23rd, is written by James Moran (Severance) and details the story of a group of bank robbers who unlock a 350-year-old vault only to unleash an army of zombies.
Michelle Ryan (188.8.131.52.), Harry Treadaway (Control), Honor Blackman (Bridget Jones’ Diary) and Jack Doolan (Cemetery Junction) all star in Matthias Hoene’s feature Cockneys vs. Zombies.
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!
