Bill Murray is back from the dead in the new red band trailer for Zombieland: Double Tap.
In the R-rated trailer, Murray sits down for an interview, where he gets asked, “What made you do it? And don’t say the script.”
“Can this be just between us?” Murray replied, then said, “Drugs cost money.”
Murray, of course, appeared in the first Zombieland film as a surprise cameo. However, he didn’t last very long. He pretended to be a zombie to scare Columbus as a prank, but the impression worked a little too well. Columbus shot Murray in the chest, killing him. Seeing as the film famously killed him off, it is unclear how he returns in the sequel.
Clearly, Zombieland: Double Tap is not out to re-invent the formula this time around, but mostly wants to tap into the fans’ love for the first movie (which only came out ten years ago, but already seems to inspire some amount of nostalgia) and the characters, who did legitimately capture people’s hearts in the original movie. It remains to be seen if the Zombieland approach still works ten years on, but the trailer certainly makes the movie look like a fun ride packed with amusing characters with some surprises along the way. And if the movie hits, maybe it will even get another sequel in ten more years, as Stone herself has mentioned wanting.
Starring Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin, Zombieland: Double Tap hits theaters on Oct. 18.
