We usually see Arnold Schwarzenegger play incredibly strong and macho characters who can wiz through antagonists without getting hit by a single bullet.
In Maggie, however, Schwarzenegger will show us his softer, more vulnerable side. Also starring Abigail Breslin, this film is about 16-year-old Maggie contracting a deathly virus, and the protocol calls for the infected to be taken out of society and put into a quarantine ward where they are transformed into zombies.
This film is based off the book by John Scott 3 and was directed by Henry Hobson. According to Schwarzeneggar, Maggie differs from other zombie films, as it's the most human in this genre.
"Maggie makes the disease real by shrinking the world of the movie to focus on one family, in the middle of nowhere, on their wasted farm. When I read it, I knew I had to do it. It is more vulnerable than any role I have played, more real, more emotional.”
Check out these three suspenseful recently released movie clips below. They're sure to have you sitting at the edge of your seat.

3. It Smells Like Food
In most zombie films, I find myself fearfully hating the zombies, viewing them as horrific antagonists. I may not be as into zombie movies, but these clips pulled on my heartstrings a little bit.
Perhaps I'm going to just have to purchase a ticket and watch Breslin as Maggie, as it seems this is truly deeper than your standard zombie flick. It's nice to see Muscle Man Schwarzenegger's fatherly devotion as well.
