Zac Efron embodies the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy within the new trailer for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, launched Friday (Jan. 25).
Efron performs a beautiful, smiling Bundy within the trailer, charming the media in an effort to persuade them of his innocence. The upbeat music and general tone of the teaser are incongruent with the violent crimes Bundy dedicated (the rape and homicide of a number of younger girls), maybe to show how Bundy was in a position to manipulate individuals into viewing him as a household man.
The movie co-stars Lily Collins as Bundy's longtime girlfriend Liz Kloepfer, who should come to phrases with the truth that the person she loves is a assassin.
The Joe Berlinger-directed movie will premiere on the Sundance Film Festival
