Maggie has been waiting in the wings for quite a while, as Arnie filmed it over a year ago, but now it’s getting ready for its release and a trailer have arrived.
It’s something a little different for Schwarzenegger as while it sounds like it could be a big action epic, it’s actually quieter and more introspective than you might expect.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘There’s a deadly zombie epidemic threatening humanity, but Wade (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a small-town farmer and family man, refuses to accept defeat even when his daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) becomes infected. As Maggie’s condition worsens and the authorities seek to eradicate those with the virus, Wade is pushed to the limits in an effort to protect her. Joely Richardson co-stars in this post-apocalyptic thriller.’
It’s out in the US on May 8th, but no UK date is currently set.
