Warner Bros. has given us our first look at another upcoming zombie movie by releasing the first The Girl With All the Gifts trailer, which you can now watch above.
It doesn’t appear as though The Girl With All the Gifts is just any ole’ zombie movie, as it appears to have some depth to it emotionally.
The story is set at an army base in rural England in the near future where humanity has been nearly destroyed by a mutated fungal disease that turns its victims into zombies — or as this movie calls them, “hungries”.
The movie revolves around a small group of children who are immune to its effects. More specifically, it will follow Melanie, a young girl who stands out from the rest, as her and her favorite teacher, Miss Justineau, escape.
The Girl With All the Gifts will star Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton, and Sennia Nanua, and it’s directed by Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders, Krypton). The film is an adaptation of the highly-rated Mike Carey novel by the same name, which you can pick up and read here. The novel has a The Last of Us vibe, with someone transporting the key to survival in a zombie apocalypse.
Of course, The Girl With All the Gifts is just one of the many upcoming horror movies of 2016 that we’re looking forward to. And when you throw Glenn Close into the mix with a zombie movie, only magical things can happen. The movie is set to be released on September 23, 2016 in the U.K.
