Arnold Schwarzenegger protects his zombie daughter in Maggie trailer: watch now

Ahead of his iconic return as the T-800 Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to star in zombie drama Maggie which has today debuted its first trailer.

In the movie Schwarzenegger plays Wade, a small-town farmer and family man whose community comes under threat from a zombie epidemic.

Even as his daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) becomes infected by the undead virus his stubborn beliefs won’t relent. When her health begins to worsen he’ll do anything it takes to protect her...

In a climate that’s overstuffed with zombie movies, TV series and comics, Maggie appears to be offering a neat twist on the topic.

Angling for the human drama at the centre of such a genre-ripe premise - there probably won’t be loads of gruesome zombie deaths - Schwarzenegger and Breslin’s performances look set to drive this one home.

Directed by Henry Hobson, Maggie opens in selected US cinemas on May 8. A UK release is expected later this year.
