Paramount Pictures has just released a new poster and the first clip for their upcoming film Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (formerly Scouts vs Zombies), which will be directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones). The film follows the tale of three scouts on their last camp-out, as they discover the true meaning of friendship when they must attempt to save their town from a zombie outbreak.
While the premise seems fun, the following movie clip looks … not great. A badly rendered zombie kitty that needs to be smacked with a cast iron skillet? Not quite hilarious, although I do have to applaud their use of practical effects. Hopefully this clip isn’t indicative of the quality of the rest of the film, though, unless they’re going for some major irony. Check out the clip and poster below:
Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse stars Halston Sage, Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, David Koechner, and Patrick Schwarzegger. It’s slated for an October 30th release.
