Official Trailer Arrives for Japanese Netflix Horror-Comedy ‘Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead’

Last year, as part of Geeked Week, we learned that Netflix was adapting the hit manga “Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead” into a live-action film of the same name. This week, the streaming service debuted the official trailer for the upcoming movie, which is set to debut on the streaming service on August 3.

“Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead” follows overworked office worker Akira (Eiji Akaso) who, in the wake of a zombie apocalypse, is more excited at not having to go to work than worry about fending off the undead. Deciding to live fully, he comes up with 100 things to do before becoming a zombie and embarks on a journey with Shizuka (Mai Shiraishi) and Kencho (Shuntaro Yanagi) to check off his bucket list.

Among the trailer’s highlights is a first look at the zombie shark, which plays a big part in the original manga and was important to the filmmakers to include in the live-action adaptation. “The opportunity to turn a shark into a zombie and bring it onto land was too exciting to pass up,” said producer Akira Morii. “The preparation and work itself was really tough, but the thrill of being able to do something like that outweighed the difficulty.” Its appearance is brief, but the zombie shark is worth looking forward to when “Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead” arrives on Netflix later this summer.
