It doesn’t get more bizarre in Hulu’s comedy horror, Little Monsters, starring Lupita Nyong’o as a lady who battles flesh-eating zombies and protects kids.
The film, directed by Abe Forsythe, is definitely not for sensitive viewers as there appears to be no shortage of gore, foul language and of course blood-thirsty, man-eating zombies.
The plot is pretty straight-forward; Caroline (Lupita Nyong’o), Dave (Alexander England), and Teddy (Josh Gad) must work together to keep the zombie monsters at bay while shielding kindergartens from the bloodbath.
The movie had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 27, 2019, and will be released in the United States on October 8, 2019, followed by digital streaming on October 11, 2019.
Lupita Amondi Nyong’o is a Kenyan-born Mexican actress. Her father is Kenyan politician Peter Anyang Nyong’o.
Born in Mexico City, Nyong’o was raised in Kenya and attended college in the United States, earning a bachelor’s degree in Film and Theater Studies from Hampshire College. She began her Hollywood career as a production assistant, making her acting debut in the short film East River.
Nyong’o received critical acclaim and won several awards in her first feature film role as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s historical drama 12 Years a Slave (2013). She became the first Kenyan and Mexican actress to win an Academy Award.
She provided motion capture for the character of Maz Kanata in the Star Wars sequel trilogy (2015-2019) and voiced Raksha the wolf in Disney’s Jungle Book (2016).
