Films Distribution has released the first trailer for Goal of the Dead, the zombie soccer bloodbath helmed by Benjamin Rocher and Thierry Poiraud. The trailer is in French, and unfortunately missing subtitles. It looks like tons of fun, but so did Horde, and that turned out to be one of thee worst movies of the year. One can only hope they learned from their mistakes and deliver the insane, fun bloodbath that’s shown in the below footage. Thanks to ‘Fabien M.’ for the tip!
“The two-part film centers around a French Olympic football team who visits a small village in Northern France to play a crucial game in the run-up to the World Cup. But as the Apocalypse looms, an epidemic quickly spreads and transforms the players, spectators and inhabitants into strange and enraged creatures.“
Goal is Rocher follow-up to the absolutely awful The Horde, and was acquired out of EFM by Metrodome (U.K.), Core Media Group (Germany), Korea (Line Tree), Hong Kong (Sundream), Turkey (Bir Film), Belgium (Cineart), as well as the Netherlands and Austria. It was previously acquired by Nikkatsu for Japan (per Variety).
