Patient Zero — Official Trailer


added: Mon, Jul 16th '18

Matt Smith (former star of "Doctor Who" and "The Crown") plays an American soldier who can communicate with zombies in the trailer for "Patient Zero," a post-apocalyptic thriller that takes place in the aftermath of a zombie pandemic.

The film, which was completed back in 2015 and had its release date pushed back by a few years, also stars "Game of Thrones" alum Natalie Dormer as a government scientist working on a cure by searching for "patient zero."

Set in a post-apocalyptic future where human survivors are forced to live inside secured government bunkers, Morgan (Smith) is one of the rare infected victims. He's been bitten by a walking dead but was never turned into one. And because of this, Morgan is able to speak to other zombies. While working as an undead translator for Dr. Gina Rose (Dormer), Morgan meets someone just like him -- an infected human who doesn't show any immediate zombie traits. Although, there's one big discrepancy -- this infected human (played by Stanley Tucci) has chosen to side with the zombies.

"Do I look sick too you," asks Tucci's new hybrid zombie character. "I don't think we're the disease. We're the cure."

Co-starring Clive Standen (TV's Vikings) and John Bradley (Game of Thrones), "Patient Zero" is written by Mike Le (Dark Summer, Amnesiac) and directed by Austrian filmmaker Stefan Ruzowitzky, whose credits include the Oscar-winning foreign drama "The Counterfeiters" and recently the Austrian serial killer thriller "Cold Hell."

"Patient Zero" will premiere on VOD August 14th. It will also be released in theaters on September 14th.

In the pandemic thriller, PATIENT ZERO, humanity is battling intelligent, adrenaline-fueled creatures born from a viral super-strain. After being bitten, human survivor Morgan (Matt Smith) realizes he is asymptomatic and can communicate with the infected, leading the last survivors on a hunt for Patient Zero and a cure.
