Aram Boghosian for The Boston Globe

The undead came out in numbers over the weekend to greet Woody Harelson and Jesse Eisenberg, who were in town to promote their new comedy "Zombieland," which we hear features a great Bill Murray cameo.

The local zombies, who, as you can see, dressed the part with enthusiasm, escorted the two actors to a preview screening of the film at the Loews Boston Common.

Eisenberg, best known for roles in "The Squid and the Whale" and "Adventureland," should be back in town in just a few weeks. he's slated to star with Justin Timberlake in "The Social Network," a movie about the creation of Facebook, which is shooting around Harvard Square next month.
