The UK horror-comedy Cockneys vs. Zombies – which made its North American debut at Fantastic Fest last fall – will be released in select theaters on August 2nd. You can read our review of the film here.
Directed by Matthias Hoene, the film follows Andy and Terry: Two hapless cockney brothers who try to save their grandad’s care home by robbing a bank. At the same time, a virus sweeps across East London turning all the inhabitants into flesh eating zombies.
Faced with hordes of undead zombies, the challenge is to rescue a home full of tough old folks, escape with the loot, and get out of London alive.
Shout! Factory acquired the film for distribution last November. You can view the UK trailer here.
