The upcoming Zombieland sequel has unveiled its first poster, and with it, has appeared to reveal the film’s official title. And we have to say, it could not be more perfect.
According to the poster, the movie will be called Zombieland: Double Tap. This, of course, is a reference to the second rule of survival from the first movie where, after shooting a zombie, one must shoot them again to make sure they’re dead. The poster features returning stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin recreating their poses from the original poster. The new broadside was released side-by-side with the 2009 original on social media as part of the viral “10 Year Challenge.”

The poster gives us our first look at the reunited cast, and with the obvious exception of the obviously older Breslin, not much appears to have changed. Original writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are also returning for the sequel, as is director Ruben Fleischer. It was recently announced that Rosario Dawson will be joining the cast of the sequel, though no details were given on her role. Oh, and Bill Murray is rumored to be returning for another cameo, too. The film will feature the continued struggle for survival in “Zombieland” against a new strain of zombies that has evolved in the past ten years since the previous film, according to Deadline.
Zombieland: Double Tap is scheduled to hit theaters on October 11, 2019.
