Several months back we brought you a glowing review of the ultra low-budget zombie movie The Battery (review here), written and directed by and starring Connecticut native Jeremy Gardner.
The film follows Ben (Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), two former baseball players with clashing personalities, as they trek through a bleak landscape overrun with the walking dead searching for a glimmer of hope.
With the emphasis placed less on the zombies and more on the dynamic between the two diametrically opposite main characters, The Battery is an incredibly ambitious film that defies convention and is loaded with emotion and a sense of sentimentality not often seen in your traditional zombie flick. It’s also proof positive that a great movie is made through passion and dedication, not a huge budget or crazy special effects.
For the past several months Gardner, along with cinematographer Christian Stella, has been working hard to get the film ready for distribution, as well as continuing to showcase it in festivals all around the world to much fanfare. Finally, after months and months of patient waiting, the first official trailer has finally been unleashed. Check it out below.
The Battery will be released this June through digital distribution platform FilmBuff. And for those interested in the incredible song that plays over the first half of the trailer, it’s “Anthem for the Already Defeated” by Rock Plaza Central.
