LOOK: Sneak peek of the zombies in Julia, Joshua’s ‘Block Z’ movie

Several photos have emerged from the set of “Block Z,” the upcoming zombie movie starring Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto.

Director Mikhail Red (“Birdshot”) started shooting the much-anticipated flick early last month and although it does not offer much when it comes to its lead stars (unlike the previous tease), the new pictures show off impressive zombie make-up work.

The worry was that local productions tend to pale in comparison to foreign zombie movies, but the fresh glimpse can be taken as an encouraging sign in terms of the quality fans can expect. 

The photos were released via film website Screen Anarchy, and have been shared by Red and Barretto on social media.

“Block Z,” as teased by Red previously, is about a group trapped inside a university that has been quarantined due to a mysterious infection. The ragtag mix now have to navigate their way out using whatever makeshift weapons and supplies they can find. 

It is topbilled by Barretto and Garcia, who play one of the smartest medical students in her class and a varsity basketball player (a “handsome” one, joked Garcia), respectively. 

They are joined by Ian Veneracion, Ina Raymundo, Maris Racal, Yves Flores, Dimples Romana, and Mccoy de Leon. 

No target release date has been announced as of writing.
