There’s literally nothing new or interesting in the trailer for Patient Zero, a zombie film that has been sitting on Sony Screen Gems’ shelf for the better part of a the past few years. Now, Sony Home Entertainment will release on VOD (Aug. 14) with Vertical Entertainment putting it into limited theaters this fall (Sept. 14).
The Stefan Ruzowitzky-directed pandemic thriller stars Matt Smith (“Doctor Who,” Terminator Genisys) as a man on the hunt for the first infected, who may or may not be Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games). They need to find patient zero if they’re going to create an antidote, only it appears that the infected consider themselves the next step in our evolution and are hoping to exterminate mankind. Meanwhile, Natalie Dormer (“Game of Thrones”, The Forest) chases around an infected rat. Cool.
