[TV] Whoa! Watch The “Zombieland” Pilot Now! UPDATE!

Zombieland_Banner_4_17_13

2nd Update: Apparently this is sort of a “technical error” launch on Amazon’s part. The link says you “own” the video and can play it, but it doesn’t actually play the file. Make no mistake, this is the page where it we’ll be. We’re now hearing that this will be out Friday (tomorrow). We’ll update when that happens.

This came almost out of nowhere (sans yesterday’s hint) Amazon Studios’ “Zombieland” pilot is… out! For free on Amazon! Right HERE! Right now this apparently only works for US residents.

Also, I haven’t seen it yet so it might be great, but if there’s an option to vote for the show’s future (as previously reported) – go ahead and do it. You know how much better shows get after the pilot.

The show is based on the hit Columbia Pictures movie of the same name, and finds four survivors outwitting zombies and searching for a place to call home. The Zombieland pilot comes from the feature film’s original creative team, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Joe Schmo Show), and producer Gavin Polone (Gilmore Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm). Eli Craig (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) is directing the pilot.

The part of Tallahassee is played by Kirk Ward (The Island), Maiara Walsh (Desperate Housewives, Switched at Birth,) is Wichita, Tyler Ross (Milkshake) is Columbus, and Izabela Vidovic has the role of Little Rock.

    Doesn’t seem to be working. It says that I “own” the video, but when you click play, it’s just a loop that says “Coming Soon From Amazon Studios.”

      Super glitchy launch.

      • The31stReaper

        Yeah, from examining the source, it looks like they’re linking to a non-existent file. That trailer didn’t give me much hope, either. But, you never know. Eli Craig seems to be a pretty talented guy.

    meh..looks just o.k.

  • Aaron Emery

    Looks fucking stupid. I foresee a giant fail with this one.

  • huntermc

    I wish they would have focused on four new survivors instead of recasting the characters from the film. Still, I’ll give it a chance.

    Don’t get discouraged. Turns out this show is based off a movie called “Zombieland”, and it’s amazing with Woody in it. Who’d of thought…

  • Zombie-Killa

    Eh, kept getting the promo ad, so I gave up after a while. Maybe it’ll be available tomorrow.

    The trailer looks like utter garbage, so I don’t have any high hopes right now.

    Movies and TV shows are different animals, especially when it comes to comedy, and specifically adaptations. While it may not have the same tone or feel of the movie it might still might wind up being a decent TV show on its own. We just might have to forget that it has anything to do with the movie. Just like the Office (US) TV show. It wasn’t the same as the UK version, and it you compared them the US version looks lame. But if you judge it on its own merits it was, for awhile, a really good show. Just different.

    It won’t be available until Friday, for some reason.

    • EvanDickson

      We’ll see. I saw that report but don’t know what their source is.

  • macguffin54

    According to another of these horror websites, that is.

    Not trying to be a douche but I really HATE the fact that they made this into a tv series, UGH!!
