Originally expected to hit theaters Oct. 11, Zombieland: Double Tap will now make its debut Oct. 18.

Back in January, we got our first poster for the film along with the confirmation of a title. The poster features the original cast of Emma StoneJesse EisenbergWoody Harrelson and Abigail Breslin.

The film will also add new characters played by Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Zoey Deutch (Flower), Rosario Dawson (Jane the Virgin) and Luke Wilson (Old School).

Eisenberg confirmed that the film will pick up ten years later, with our favorite characters making a home in the abandoned White House.

“It took ten years to make because we were just insistent that the script be great — which sounds like it should be obvious, but that’s not always the case,” Eisenberg explains.

“Because the movie is not only popular but also beloved, people feel like it has some personal resonance for them, so we wanted to make sure that it’s as good or better than the first, and it feels that way! We have two weeks left and it feels really great. Everything we’ve done feels very funny.”

Now, the film’s latest poster teases fire and chaos along with the Twitter caption, “Get ready for seconds…”

While it isn’t the trailer we’ve all been hoping for, it’s important to remember Rule #32: Enjoy the little things.

Zombieland: Double Tap hits theaters Oct. 18. Read the synopsis for the upcoming zombie flick below:

Through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, the Zombie slayers must face off against many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.”

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
