Zombieland: Double Tap goes to Washington in its zany first trailer

Zombieland: Double Tap is doubling down on the silliness of the 2009 original in the film’s first trailer, which finds our central foursome storming the White House, smoking reefer, and meeting a bizarro version of their clan led by Luke Wilson and Thomas Middleditch.

Director Ruben Fleischer and the original screenwriters have also returned for the beefed-up sequel, which appears to be lighter on zombies than it is on flesh. In addition to Wilson and Middleditch, Double Tap will welcome the decidedly un-undead likes of Zoey Deutch, Rosario Dawson, and Avan Jogia. That said, the crew has become quite adept at crowbar’ing zombies into dust and slicing ‘em up via thresher.
