Take a look at the red band UK trailer released for Little Monsters, an upcoming zombie comedy starring Lupita Nyong’o and Josh Gad.
We follow washed-up musician Dave (Aussie actor Alexander England), who decides to chaperone his nephew’s kindie class trip in an effort to get closer to Miss Caroline (Nyong’o). And wouldn’t you know it: there’s a sudden outbreak of zombies. Not exactly helping things is Teddy McGiggle, a famous kids’ show personality who’s also competing for her affections.
This Australian-American-British co-production looks like a fun little zomedy, and while early reviews have been mixed, most (unsurprisingly) commend Nyong’o’s performance. Directed and written by Abe Forsyth (Ned, Down Under).
Little Monsters will be hitting UK cinemas on November 15.
Official synopsis for Little Monsters:
LITTLE MONSTERS follows Dave (Alexander England), a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a serious liking to the fearless schoolteacher, Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong’o). Dave’s intentions are complicated by the presence of the world’s most famous kids’ show personality and competition for Miss Caroline’s affections, Teddy McGiggle (Josh Gad).
One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak. Will Dave rise to the occasion and have a chance at Miss Caroline’s heart, or will the zombies get there first?
