Trailer: “COCKNEYS VS ZOMBIES” is just that
The shtick of foul-mouthed elderly folk fighting off hordes of the undead could get old pretty quick. Luckily, COCKNEYS VS ZOMBIES focuses on the best foul-mouthed elderly folk in the world, the British.
That’s not to say they’re very foul-mouthed in this latest trailer (it’s not of the red band variety), but c’mon, Brick Top from SNATCH is in it. In COCKNEYS VS ZOMBIES, “the Bow Bells Care Home is under threat and the McGuires – Andy, Terry, and Katy – need to find some way to keep their Grandfather and his friends in the East End where they belong. But, when you’re robbing a bank, zombie invasions make things a lot harder. And, let’s face it, they need all the help they can get when their bank-robbing experts turn out to be Mental Mickey and Davey Tuppance. As contractors to an East London building site unlock a 350-year old vault of seriously hungry zombies, the East End has suddenly gone to hell and the Cockney way of life is under threat. Equipped with all the guns and ammo they can carry, it’s up to the gang to save the hostages, their Grandfather, and East London from zombie Armageddon.”
Written by Lucas Roche and James Moran, of SEVERANCE and the upcoming TOWER BLOCK fame, COCKNEYS VS ZOMBIES arrives in theaters August 2.
