Matt Smith (“Doctor Who,” Terminator Genisys) and Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) star. Stefan Ruzowitzky directs. The pandemic thriller also stars Natalie Dormer (“Game of Thrones”), John Bradley (“Game of Thrones”), and Agyness Deyn (Clash of the Titans) and sees humanity battling intelligent, adrenaline-fueled creatures born from a viral super strain.
“The great days of zombies are a little bit over. It’s time for something new,” said Ruzowitzky, adding that “the infected,” as they’re called, are “much sexier” than the undead. “They have a lot of energy, they’re fast, they’re good-looking. Not those walking vegetables.”
An unprecedented global pandemic of a super strain of rabies has turned the majority of humankind into highly intelligent, streamlined killers known as “The Infected.” One victim, Morgan (Matt Smith), who is asymptomatic and can communicate with the infected, leads the last survivors on a hunt for Patient Zero and a cure.
