Zac Efron Is Absolutely Terrifying in Netflix’s First Ted Bundy Biopic Trailer
On Tuesday (April 2), we got another look into the twisted world of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile — Netflix's biopic about Ted Bundy's infamous killing spree.
The film focuses around the serial killer, played by Zac Efron, from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins) and goes through the killings, trial, his prison escape, and ultimately receiving the death penalty.
In Netflix's first trailer, we get a better look into Kloepfer's spiral as she questions her mysterious, alluring, deadly boyfriend about committing those heinous crimes. Efron's Bundy is charming, handsome, and absolutely terrifying.
Watch the Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile trailer below and watch out for it on Netflix and select theaters May 3.
The biopic premiered at Sundance in January, where Efron told Variety about the physical transformation he made for the role.
"The main thing is that guys in the '70s have that wiry, thin look," he explained. "Ted was always kinda a little bit gaunt. He always looked pretty tired. So I had a good set of fake teeth that were pretty easy to talk with after a while. That was part of it… I just ate a lot of plant-based [food] and did a lot of cardio."
