A Zombie Is Humanity's Last Hope in First Trailer for The Girl with All the Gifts
The first trailer for the anticipated adaptation of M.R. Carey's The Girl with All the Gifts has dropped, and it gives us a taste of an entirely different kind of zombie movie:



In The Girl with All the Gifts, the world has been ravaged by a pandemic that turns everyone into mindless flesh-eating "hungries." A few children afflicted with the disease, including the protagonist, Melanie, retain their ability to think and feel, which makes them targets for cruel experiments by scientists led by Glenn Close's Dr. Caldwell.

With the zombie craze that's taken hold over the last few years, it's difficult for any zombie movie to distinguish itself from the pack, so making movies about sentient zombies is both inevitable and refreshing. Aside from the odd comedy like Warm Bodies or Life After Beth, we haven't seen many stories from the zombie's perspective, so this should be an interesting change of pace.

The Girl with All the Gifts doesn't have a U.S. release date yet, but judging from the trailer, it's only a matter of time.
