Trivia: The song "Master of Puppets" was originally intended to be used for the opening credits of the first "Zombieland," but the song "For Whom the Bell Tolls" ended up being cheaper to license. Director Ruben Fleischer said that the first thing he did when "Zombieland: Double Tap" got the greenlight was license "Master of Puppets" for the opening credits.
Other mistake: The gun choreography in the fight at the Hound Dog just sucks. Nevada picks up the now zombiefied Albuquerque's gun, a Mini Draco AK with a (at most) a 10 round magazine, can barely hold it up but longarms it like a handgun and *brrr* fires at about double the guns actual fire rate. Infinite ammo, zero recoil (with a small stature woman firing 7.62x39 with one hand no stock) and the entire time she's shooting, the gun is pointing right at Tallahassee's head. (01:01:55)
Question: There are 2 scenes in this film that reminded me of Shaun of the Dead, the first is the scene in which they use times to aim and shoot, they use the same funny specific times like "11:45" etc. The second is the having characters who look like the main characters. Has the director ever commented on inspiration from Shaun of the Dead, is it a nod or a ripoff?
