Star Cinema just dropped the teaser of Block Z, and it's looking every bit a super scary and gory zombie apocalypse thriller.
Block Z director Mikhail Red took to his Instagram account to announce the release of the trailer, sharing how honored he is to direct a Filipino zombie movie.
"Growing up as a film fan I have always dreamed of seeing a Filipino zombie movie up on the big screen," he said in his post.
The teaser opens with news reports stating what looks like the near collapse of the Philippines with the zombie outbreak. Joshua Garcia's character warns his fellow students Julia Barretto, Mccoy De Leon, and Maris Racal about the situation and how they can only depend on themselves and fight for their one priority: survival.
There's also the bloodbath scene with Julia carrying an ax, and that of an entire zombified basketball team running full speed towards Joshua and the rest of their group. We're totally intrigued!
Earlier in June, amidst rumors of a breakup between Joshua and Julia, Mikhail Red posted a photo of most of the Block Z main cast enjoying a meal out together. About a week ago, Julia revealed that she and Joshua are happy as they are now the "best of friends."
Joshua will be starring opposite his new love team partner Janella Salvador for the upcoming television thriller romance, Killer Bride.
No release date has been announced for when Block Z premieres in theaters. Watch the teaser here:
