NSFW Red Band Trailer for Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse Brings on the Zombie Kittens
The red band trailer for Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is out, and to be honest, it's so NSFW that we have no idea what the green band trailer would look like:



The film is clearly branding itself as Zombieland meets Superbad meets Stand by Me, as it takes a silly and campy perspective on the zombie apocalypse through the eyes of three dorky Boy Scouts who are ready to learn the true meaning of friendship at any moment. They're attacked by zombie strippers, zombie prep school bullies, and best of all, zombie cats. 

I'm a huge fan of Zombieland, and I liked the silly tone of the trailer, but it still doesn't look very good. For all that it's marketing itself as a comedy, there were no clever one-liners that I can repeat for you, which seems like an oversight. Plus, although you can expect some level of sexism from any buddy comedy, the constant barrage of objectification left a bad taste in my mouth. I wouldn't have shed any tears if the strippers they had just been objectifying had eaten them all, let's just leave it at that.

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse stars X-Men: Apocalypse's Tye Sheridan and is directed by the Paranormal Activity franchise's Christopher B. Landon. It comes out on October 30.
