We just love the upcoming zombie Christmas musical ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE, and we’ve got the new poster to share with you, plus word of its New York Comic-Con panel next month.
ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE opens in select theaters November 30 and expands nationwide December 6 from Orion Pictures. Directed by John McPhail from a script by Alan McDonald and Ryan McHenry, and featuring dynamic songs by Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly, it stars Ella Hunt, Malcom Cumming, Ben Wiggins, Sarah Swire, Christopher Leveaux, Marli Siu, Mark Benton and Paul Kaye. The synopsis: “A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven—at Christmas—forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. But they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and with civilization falling apart around them, the only people they can truly rely on are each other…”
The NYCC panel with the movie’s cast and creative team will take place October 6 from 3-4 p.m. in room 1A10 at the Javits Center; see more info here, and read our rave review of ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE here.
