Arnold Schwarzenegger takes on the undead in Maggie, though it's not at all the sort of banging, crashing, punching zombies in the face sort of zombie film you may expect. No, Henry Hobson's Tribeca selected film takes a much more dramatic approach to the material. Here's how the festival describes it:
There's a deadly zombie epidemic threatening humanity, but Wade (Arnold
Schwarzenegger), a small-town farmer and family man, refuses to accept
defeat even when his daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) becomes infected.
As Maggie's condition worsens and the authorities seek to eradicate
those with the virus, Wade is pushed to the limits in an effort to
protect her. Joely Richardson co-stars in this post-apocalyptic
You don't need to take our word for it, though, as the first trailer is now on the scene and Arnold is looking pretty compelling as the weathered small town leading man. Check it out below.
