Emma Stone (La La Land, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Abigail Breslin (TV’s _Scream Queens_) are back for more zombie post-apocalyptic shenanigans, in Columbia Pictures’ action comedy “Zombieland: Double Tap”.

In the film, the core four characters Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Stone), and Little Rock (Breslin) have settled into their little family and new life together at The White House. Yes, The White House.

But, as is the case with all families, they’ve begun to have a few issues. That’s how you know it’s a real family, right? Columbus and Wichita have coupled up in the Lincoln bedroom, and while Columbus is ready to take the next step in commitment, Wichita is at heart a loner and is uneasy about their domesticity. Tallahassee, meanwhile, has also reluctantly become a willing family member and father figure to Little Rock, who has grown into a young woman. Teen angst on full throttle, Little Rock itches to meet people her own age and get out of the stuffy White House.

Which really pisses Tallahassee off. Wichita and Little Rock can’t deal and take off, but the road is still bumpy—and not just because it’s littered with undead carcasses. And when Little Rock abandons Wichita to run off with neo-hippie pacifist Berkeley (Avan Jogia), Wichita returns to the White House for reinforcements to go find her.

“Ten years later, they’re still a family unit. But they’re struggling with dynamics between them,” says Stone. “As the years have gone on, zombies have evolved a bit. There’s a group of zombies that are much harder to deal with. So they’re learning this sort of new landscape of the zombies, and some of The Rules that used to work don’t work as well anymore.”

Much like Tallahassee, Wichita planned to go her own way—albeit with Little Rock, her partner in crime. So when Columbus proposes to her, with the Hope diamond naturally, she’s so thrown for a loop, she runs. “She freaks out at the idea of a commitment like that, even though there’s no other people on the planet,” says Eisenberg.

But not before she leaves a very short goodbye note. Ouch. “Wichita is still wanting to be a lone wolf, even though she’s been in a family and a relationship with Columbus for 10 years,” says Stone. But she soon heads back to White House sweet White House when Little Rock abandons her for a free-loving, free-wheeling granola dude, Berkeley… and leaves a note. It runs in the family.

In Philippine cinemas on October 23, “Zombieland: Double Tap” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Use the hashtag #ZOMBIELAND2

ABOUT ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP

A decade after Zombieland became a hit film and cult classic, the original cast including Woody Harrelson (TV’s True Detective), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network, Justice League), Abigail Breslin (TV’s Scream Queens) and Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (La La Land) reunite with veteran director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) and screenwriters Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese (Deadpool).

In association with Pariah and 2.0 Entertainment, Columbia Pictures presents “Zombieland: Double Tap”. Comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, these four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first film, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.
