Also looks nothing at all how the book was. May still turn out to a be a good movie but should not have been named world war z, if the previews are any indication of the story line.

Yeah, I'm still confused as well. Someone mentioned zombies but this appears to be something more government organized. I can't really tell. Any insight?

Still looks good, though - I will see it. I'm a huge end of days flick fan (zombies, virus, aliens, etc).

I bolded zombies because it is the genre I hate more than anything, but most modern end of the world films are absolutely awful IMO. The genre has been so overdone that even the classics are getting old for me.

Yeah I was interested until I saw the zombie tidal wave. That just looked silly.

this.

After I came to terms with this (pretty much after I saw this preview months ago) I kind of prepared for the worst.

I'll still see it, but it loses its luster for me. I just hope Ender's Game isn't ruined.

Well that sucks.

I'll still see it, and I'll just lower my expectations.

Well how could they really base it off the book. I read it a while ago so I might be off but the book was just lots of short stories about people talking about their experiences living through a zombie apocalypse. There really weren't any main characters or general storylines to follow.

I'm always interested to see how each director portrays zombies/virus infected people and just how fast/strong/physically able they are.

i think this would have been a perfect time to do that. They could have had all the big stars in different vignettes like the book. Rather than tank like Mars Attacks with all their stars fighting for face time, this one would have been perfect for it.


oh well. missed opportunity.

Apparently, they are after Red Bull, not brains... it is silly. In about ten years, I presume zombies will just start teleporting to get around.

The animators had to be laughing themselves silly when they were creating that effect.

This movie continues to look worse and worse. This is goofy.

Going to do well because of Pitt and Zombies, but will have a hard time living up to the book.
