Forget “Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Back Into the Water” (Jaws) or “A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away” (Stars Wars)…
…because there’s a new brilliant tagline in Tinseltown…
“NUT UP OR SHUT UP” (Zombieland)
Woody Harrelson’s latest film boasts that clever, well-articulated, short & sweet tagline—and it premieres TODAY. I predict that it will do very well since October is pretty much National Halloween Month in the U.S. Oh, and my opinion? I think it looks HILARIOUS so I’m sure I’ll be checking it out at some point.
And of course we all heard about this cinematic treat a few months back when Woody went crazy on the paparazzi because he confused them with zombies. Remember that? Yeah, that was classic.
Below is the trailer for Zombieland, enjoy!
By now you might have already heard that Woody Harrelson had a very recent run-in with a paparazzo at New York’s LaGuardia Airport. Not exciting. But what really made this story riveting was his excuse (excerpt from CNN.com)
“I wrapped a movie called ‘Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character,” Harrelson said in a statement issued by his publicist. “With my daughter at the airport I was startled by the paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie,” he said.
Yes. Quite understandably.
More importantly, though, our Woodster is once again on the cutting-edge of socio-political issues. This time, leading the way in a campaign to uncover the truth about the paps, and that indeed they are just a bunch of zombies with day jobs. Kind of makes sense, when you think about it. 1) They travel in packs 2) They tend to grunt a lot 3) They often wear tattered and ill-fitting clothes/generally look sloppy 4) They typically take the lurk and stalk approach.
Anyway, regardless what the truth may or may not be, he scored major points with me for tossing out all the cliche excuses (I was on painkillers, my therapist is on vacation, the dog ate my homework) and courageously went right for the most awesome excuse ever: a zombie made me do it. BRAVO, Woody, BRA-VO!
