Zombieland, the new horror comedy starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin enjoyed its red (or black, as the case may be) carpet premiere in Hollywood last week. The film will be in theaters nationwide on Friday, October 2.
Stay tuned for our one-of-a-kind video interviews with everyone, coming soon!

Woody Harrelson talks about the weaponry in the film, each of which were named. One of the rubber guns was, ironically enough considering the zombie-guy in the background, "The Baker".
Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick said they began Zombieland as a pilot for a hopeful television series. When that didn't work out, it was redone for the cinema.
Jesse Eisenberg, when asked if he was scared of the "clown zombie" in the film said no, because his mother was a professional clown... still not sure if he was kidding about that or not.
Ruben Fleischer, the director of the film, says that improvisation was very much encouraged on set and that the writers didn't mind -- although their script was already funny, everyone agreed that the actors had a lot of good ideas.
Several zombies wandered onto the dead carpet during interviews. I think this one was rabid.
Angry teenager, bridesmaid.
The galloping gourmet, President Lincoln.

Tricky Dick is still giving interviews. I think the success of Frost/Nixon encouraged him.
"Your president is not a corpse!"
I think he's just a little over-cooked.
Mafia Don of the dead.
A putrid princess.
"Two, Four, Six, Eight... who do we eviscerate?"

Even the undead are trying to self-promote, as Woody signs autographs.
Zombie Gene Simmons does a great version of "Deth".
Anatomy of a zombie takedown...
Not the most convincing victim, laughing the entire time, but it was fun! (Remember, we've video coming soon)
