The Crazies theatrical trailer

America goes wild.

The first trailer for The Crazies has been released, and it looks to be a cross between a traditional slasher and M Night Shyamalan’s The Happening, by what’s revealed in the footage. Event films are in vogue at the moment, after all, and director Breck Eisner seems to have embraced this whole heartedly.

The trailer is embedded below, through YouTube.

The Crazies is directed by Breck Eisner and features Timothy Olyphant, Danielle Panabaker, Radha Mitchell and Joe Anderson. The film is a remake of George A Romero’s 1973 film of the same name, which centres on the accidental release of a military biological weapon on a small town that drive its inhabitants into a murderous rage. The Crazies is set for a 26 February 2010 release.
