Fast appearing to be in the vein of “so bad maybe it’s good?” Paramount’s red band trailer for Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (formerly Scouts vs Zombies) is a gruesome look at three scouts looking to save the world. But as we see in this trailer, since they’ve been bullied and forgotten pre-apocalypse, they also are going to get a little revenge on their zombified enemies as they attempt to rescue the rest of humanity from the outbreak. “Never doubt a scout!”
With a stripper (pardon me … “cocktail waitress”) as their gun-toting savior, Scouts Guide plays heavy on the excitement of see bared breasts — even zombie breasts. But, this trailer also shows some better kill effects and overall look to the movie than the teaser, which only featured a zombie cat that gets attacked with a cast iron skillet … not exactly hilarious stuff, but it could just be goofy enough to be garner cult appreciation.
You check out the trailer below. Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) and stars Halston Sage, Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, David Koechner, and Patrick Schwarzegger. It’s slated for a Halloween release.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one badass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they’ll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead.
