Watch: First Trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger's Zombie Drama 'Maggie'
I have to admit, I didn't know what to think about Maggie, Arnold Schwarzenegger's upcoming zombie thriller. But after months of relative silence, the first trailer for the film is here, and it looks much better than I expected:



The idea of a father-daughter drama with a zombie twist, and the idea of Schwarzenegger in a bonafide dramatic role for that matter, had the potential to be really good or really bad. After this trailer, I'll tentatively predict that it will be at least decent, as it looks visually interesting and refreshingly restrained in the zombie action/gore department.

The trailer also cites a positive review of the film that calls it "one of this year's most audacious discoveries" and Arnold Schwarzenegger's performance "superb." I'm not sure where these reviews are coming from, since the film was pulled from the Toronto Film Festival, but they may have come from the people evaluating the entries for the festival? It's also encouraging that a huge studio such as Lionsgate picked up the film and pulled it from the festival in favor of a prime spring release date.

Maggie, which also stars Abigail Breslin and Joely Richardson, comes out on May 8.
