With Maggie due to premiere tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival, Arnold Schwarzenegger just unveiled the very first clip from the film. He stars as Wade, a man who manages to track down his daughter during a zombie outbreak. Trouble is, he’s too late and Maggie (Abigail Breslin) is already infected. However, despite warnings from his wife and friends, Wade decides to bring Maggie home to protect her, even if it means putting his own life at risk.
It’s clear that this won’t be your typical gruesome, action-packed zombie apocalypse, but this moment is a bit slow and dry for a first look at the film. But, then again, it is just teasing what Wade will be dealing with over the course of the movie so I’m hopeful things will get far more dramatic and intense than this. You can check out the new Maggie clip for yourself below and be sure to keep an eye out for my review of the film coming soon.
Here’s the official synopsis for Maggie:
Fear, panic, and paranoia pit neighbor against neighbor. Families are ripped apart as loved ones are forced into quarantine. Authorities attempt to maintain control over communities teaming with violence. But with droves of new victims each day, it’s a losing battle for those citizens uninfected by the zombie outbreak. In Henry Hobson’s debut feature, Wade (Arnold Schwarzenegger) locates his missing teenage daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) at the local hospital and insists on bringing her home to care for Maggie himself. With her “disease” progressing quickly, manifesting in increasingly disturbing ways, Wade shuns the warnings of his wife and friends—risking infection from the overpoweringly ravenous Maggie.
