"The Crazies" trailer goes live (Video)

Zombies are back, though I’m not sure they ever left. On the eve of Zombieland hitting theaters, a trailer for The Crazies has finally gone live. As I reported on Wednesday, the film is a remake of a 1973 George Romero film of the same name. The remake stars Timothy Olyphant and takes place in a small Iowa town where a toxin contaminates the water supply, turning everyone completely crazy. Here’s the trailer.
