Altitude Films has released the first trailer for Little Monsters, an outrageous new zombie comedy starring Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o.

The trailer begins with a group of soldiers being gathered, asking why they’re here, when they’re told that it’s, ‘zombies again.’

The soldier then asks if they are ‘slow or fast ones,’ as we see footage of some of these undead creatures chewing human flesh.

The commanding officer says they’re slow, as we see shots of random zombie shuffling along at a snail’s pace.

‘Thank God they’re slow,’ the soldier responds.

The trailer then cuts to Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong’o), clad in a bright yellow dress, on a bus with her school children during a field trip.

Their field trip is to the Pleasant Valley Farm, where they’re greeted by Teddy McGiggle (Josh Gad), who is fake pleased to see them all.

But as they take a ride on a tractor, their whole world has been upended as they come across a zombie eating a sheep, which startles Miss Caroline.

With the help of Dave (Alexander England), she manages to get the children to safety, while sheltering them from the truth about what these zombies really are.

Instead of describing them as flesh-eating creatures, she says that they are all ‘it’ in a big game of tag. 

She finds Teddy holed up in a locked store, but he refuses to let them in, and when Caroline says there are children out here, he says, ‘Oh my God… I don’t give a s**t.’

After she sneaks the kids in through a hole in the wall, Teddy says they’re all gonna die, but Miss Caroline keeps insisting that the zombies are just, ‘part of the game.’

The rest of the trailer is set to If You’re Happy And You Know It, with Caroline ultimately slapping Teddy after he calls her and Dave the ‘stupidest people’ he’s ever met. 

While Caroline is trying to shelter her kids from the horrors outside, she clearly isn’t afraid of getting her hands dirty, seen taking out a few zombies herself.

The trailer ends with Caroline scolding Dave about behaving a certain way in front of the children, while a zombie eats a human in the background. 

One of the final shots of the trailer shows Gad holding up a small zombie child, taking a bite out of it, before realizing that’s how he could become a zombie himself.

Little Monsters is slated for release November 15 in the United Kingdom and Ireland, but there is no domestic U.S. release date set yet.
