Zombieland Movie Poster

Halloween may be over... but not for Hollywood! Zombieland is the latest zombedy (zombie + comedy) to hit the screen with Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg (Adventureland), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Emma Stone (Superbad) and yes, even Bill Murray... as himself!

It's a fun, thrill-packed and wild ride of mayhem, splattered brains and Bill Murray. Harrelson and Eisenberg play a ragtag team of zombie survivors, who are playing according to the rules of surviving Zombieland and making their way across the lost American wasteland. It's great to see Harrelson, playing what could be described as an American Crocodile Dundee... Zombie Dundee if you will and Eisenberg playing the same dorky, yet likable underdog character from Adventureland.

As entertaining and cult-centric as Zombieland may be, it must give some respect to one of the first real commercial zombedies... Shaun of the Dead with the legendary Simon Pegg of Spaced and Hot Fuzz. Shaun of the Dead's wicked sense of humour, buddy story, indie romance and zombie frenzy seemed to have it all... even armed with a cricket bat instead of the obligatory weapon of choice associated with baseball big-hitters.

Zombieland has the stuff of a classic horror comedy, but does it have the goods on British cult sensation, Shaun of the Dead? Well, let's see if a trailer match-up can give us any indication of a clear winner or loser in the epic battle for the Ultimate Commercial Zombedy

This week's Trailer Showdown is between the official Zombieland HD trailer and the Shaun of the Dead trailer.
