The upcoming remake of George Romero’s third installation of the original Dead trilogy, “Day of the Dead” now has a new poster for your ogling pleasure. It’s a sharp looking piece of poster and the zombie looks bad ass and scary, but I think the thing that makes me cringe the most is the Mena Suvari and Nick Cannon part of it. *shudder*
I wasn’t a huge fan of Romero’s original; it’s definitely third of three in the trilogy. It had its strong points: the KNB effects were great and I thought Bub was an awesome zombie character, but it had its weak points, too (could Rhodes have been any more over the top?!). So I’m not totally averse to this remake. I believe it’s going to be like Zack Snyder’s remake of ‘Dawn of the Dead’ where it’s not really retelling the original story; more of a launching point. Plus, it’s been pulled from having a theatrical release and is a direct-to-video release (coming to a shelf near you April 8th), so it won’t mess with the original trilogy as much as Snyder’s did.
Either way, feast your brains on the poster.
