Despite a title that alludes to a film about a lucky lass on Christmas Day, The Girl with All the Gifts looks like the must-see zombie movie of 2017.

Set in a dystopian future where a virus has transformed humans into flesh-eating “hungries”, the survival of the human race depends on the titular child, whose brain may hold the key to a cure.

Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close and Paddy Considine headline the quality cast, and reviews have been extremely positive.

Now all we need is an Australian release date, which hopefully won’t be too far away.

Enjoy the trailer for now…
