Zombie land : Double Tap is a 2019 American post-apocalypticzombie comedy film directed by Ruben Fleischer and written by Rhett Reese, Paul Warwick, and David Callahan. A sequel to Zombie land (2009), it stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Berlin, and Emma Stone reprising their roles from the first film, alongside new cast members, Rosario Dawson, Zoey Dutch, Van Join, Luke Wilson, and Thomas Middle ditch.
Talk of a Zombie land sequel began before the release of the first installment, with Reese and Warwick suggesting ideas and the cast voicing their desire to make a second film. By 2017, a script had been written, the cast were on board, and the film was confirmed in July 2018 by Sony Pictures.
The four main stars and Fleischer all signed on that month, while additional cast members, including Dawson and Wilson, joined in early 2019. Zombie land : Double Tap was theatrically released in the United States on October 18, 2019, by Sony Pictures Releasing, received mixed to positive reviews from critics and has grossed $122 million worldwide.
Ten years after the events of the first film, survivors Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock have become experts in identifying and disposing of various zombies and set up their new home in the abandoned White House. The next morning, Tallahassee finds a note from Wichita and Little Rock, who have left due to Little Rock feeling Tallahassee still treats her like a child and Wichita's fear she is too attached to Columbus.
A month later, while exploring a mall, Columbus is startled by a dizzy blonde named Madison, who has survived Zombie land alone by hiding the majority of the time inside the freezer of a Pink berry store. Madison quickly annoys Tallahassee, but Columbus invites her back to the White House, where the two have sex.
Returning and discovering Columbus has slept with Madison, Wichita explains that Little Rock has left for Graceland with a pacifist from Berkeley, and informs the group of more agile and durable “super zombies.” Fearing for Little Rock's safety, the group heads toward Graceland in a rundown minivan.
On the way they encounter one of the super-zombies that takes multiple gunshots to kill, leading Columbus to nickname it the T-800 after the Terminator franchise. Madison shows signs of “modification,” forcing Columbus to lead her into the forest to shoot her.
However, they discover “the Beast,” Tallahassee's modified presidential limousine which was stolen by Little Rock, at a nearby Elvis -themed motel. The place is run by Nevada, who reveals Little Rock took another vehicle toward Babylon, a hippie commune.
Bonding over their love of Elvis, Nevada and Tallahassee spend the night together. The group awakens to find the Beast being crushed by a monster truck driven by Nevada's friends Albuquerque and Flagstaff, who strongly resemble Tallahassee and Columbus.
She rejoins the group and explains that her nut allergy caused symptoms similar to modification. The group arrives at Babylon, give up their weapons, and find Little Rock.
A satisfied Tallahassee departs, only to find a horde of super zombies attracted by the commune's fireworks and drives back to warn everybody. Left without guns, Tallahassee devises a plan to kill the zombies with exploding biodiesel and then have commune members, armed with barricade shields, corral the stragglers off of a skyscraper with himself as the bait.
The zombie horde is more massive than expected and the group is surrounded and almost overwhelmed. Nevada arrives in Albuquerque's monster truck, rescuing the group, although the vehicle soon rolls over.
Little Rock shoots them with a pistol given to her earlier by Tallahassee, rescuing him. The two reconcile and Wichita accepts Columbus' proposal of marriage.
The original quartet leaves Babylon, joined by Nevada. In a mid-credits scene, Bill Murray witnesses the start of the zombie outbreak in 2009 while promoting the fictional Garfield 3: Flabby Tabby.
“ Warwick said he wanted to have Jesse Eisenberg, Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Berlin star again, with Ruben Fleischer returning as the director, and that the writers had “tons of new ideas swimming in their heads.” Additionally, they wanted to make the comedy into an enduring franchise.
From this, they wrote a TV pilot, starring a different cast, released in April 2013 on Love film and Amazon Video. At the time of the first film's release, Reese and Warwick said they were not planning on an immediate sequel, due to being heavily involved with other writing projects.
In March 2017, it was revealed that the script for Zombie land 2 had been completed, with Warwick and Reese stating: All the cast have become superstars now so, we made Zombie land with 20 million, so it's trying to fit that financial model into the sequel model, so it makes sense for the studio and being able to pay the actors what they now get paid and deserve to get paid.
We see Tom Rothman pretty frequently now, and we're pestering that dude. In May 2018, Harrelson said that he hoped the film would be in production by early 2019, and that it would be released in time for the original's tenth anniversary.
On July 13, 2018, Zombie land : Double Tap was officially green lit by Sony Pictures. Ruben Fleischer returned to direct while Eisenberg, Harrelson, Stone and Berlin reprised their roles.
Sanford Pan itch, president of Columbia Pictures, declared in a press release: We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly amazing.
The building used for the Babylon commune is located in Atlanta near the spaghetti junction. The film was released in the United States on October 18, 2019.
Worldwide, Sony spent about $60 million on prints and advertising for the film. In the United States and Canada, the film was released alongside Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, and was projected to gross $25–30 million from 3,468 theaters in its opening weekend.
Richard Roper of the Chicago Sun-Times praised the performances, saying “They're all terrific, but Emma Stone in particular kills with a sharply honed, funny and endearing performance as the battle-tested and cynical Wichita, who is fearless when it comes to taking on zombies, but terrified when it comes to fully committing to a human connection.” Simon Thompson at IGN also praises the acting, writing, Zombie land : Double Tap is a riot, and a lot of that is due to Zoey Dutch and her character, Madison.
While it doesn't quite achieve classic status in its own right, when it comes to sequels that do the original film justice, it is up there. Kate Er bland of IndieWire gave the film a “C+”, saying, Zombie land : Double Tap still finds space for big laughs (the pairing of Eisenberg and Harrelson remains nutty and fun), a welcome cameo in the credits, and a banger of a final battle in which the body count soars to ridiculous numbers.
But, after 10 years of anticipation, it would have been nice to see a zombie movie with more on its mind than the same goofy undead routine.” Peter Debug of Variety wrote, “The zombies have evolved the comedy not so much,” and, “Here, humor turns every kill into a sick punchline, and while the writers do a fine job of making them funny, like macabre cartoons in which Wile E. Coyote can rebound from unthinkable injuries, the movie’s tone negates a fundamental respect for human life.
But like the first-person-shooter video games the film’s Double Tap title references, society can’t just passively sit back and accept an attitude that mocks pacifism and makes light of such extreme violence. A mobile game, titled Zombie land : Double Tapper, was released along with the film, featuring the characters.
