Bathia_Mapes: knbber2: Yikes, looks like they destroyed the book.Indeed. IIRC, in the book they were the classic slow zombies. And it looks as though, unlike the book, they're coordinating/cooperating with each other when scaling the building. They aren't supposed to be intelligent enough to do stuff like that.
Parts of Glasgow are being turned into war-torn ruins for the next two weeks as filming for a new Hollywood blockbuster gets under way.
AdolfOliverPanties: This is funny to me. I didn't read the book, so to me it just looks like a you people are losing your shiat over nothing. Maybe the book was this awesome ride and they are totally ruining it, but I am getting a kick out of how people on the web are pillorying this trailer.I personally hate fast zombie stories anyway.
GAT_00: I can only hope this will finally cause Zombie Overkill and people let the whole damn thing die.
Raharu: I like a mix of slow and fast, you don't know which is which, they are mixed in with each other...
Mentat: I'm willing to give this movie a chance. I know it doesn't follow the book and it's a little different from other works of zombie fiction but that doesn't mean-Despite the third act footage that was already in the can, Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof was brought in to write a new ending - both literally and figuratively - for the venture.God damnit.
Mugato: So why do we hate this now? Admittedly I'm a little zombied-out but this looks like it has good production values anyway.
Shadow Blasko: I'll probably go see it, I just wish they had called it something else... if for no reason than people will watch it and think that they can skip the book.
Bladel: Other than the title, what does this have in common with the book?
Raharu: Mentat: I'm willing to give this movie a chance. I know it doesn't follow the book and it's a little different from other works of zombie fiction but that doesn't mean-Despite the third act footage that was already in the can, Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof was brought in to write a new ending - both literally and figuratively - for the venture.God damnit.Mother farker.
One Bad Apple: WTF was with the climbing pile of zombies ? I don't waarrgarble about the fast vs slow zombies but I draw the line at army ant zombies.That's just silly
brigid_fitch: badly CGI'd zombies
brigid_fitch: The chapter w/the zillionaire's bunker
log_jammin: brigid_fitch: badly CGI'd zombiesthat really can't be over stated.
Darth_Lukecash: The biggest problem with these CGI trailer, is that the CGI isn't finalized...or completed. Remember how people were biatching about The Hulk in the early Avengers Trailers?My problem it's a farking Zombie movie. Stupidest concept for a monster ever.

wildcardjack: This looks like the sort of adaptation The Moon is a Harsh Mistress would receive.
bob_ross: Ok I know nothing about the lore, the book or anything. This just looks like another stupid movie. But my question is:Did that garbage truck say PWND?
brigid_fitch: From the trailer, it looks like they just went with a fast-paced, movie-length version of The Walking Dead. With badly CGI'd zombies and Inception's score.
sonorangal: Why does this remind me of "War of the Worlds" meets "I am Legend"? Hollywood out of ideas?
Poe: looking forward to the unabridged audiobook
Coelacanth: I think these zombies have a hive mind. And for a lot of months since the first two scripts were leaked, I've been calling this train wreck Starship Zombies on account of what Hollywood did Robert Heinlein's book Starship Troopers, but may God and St.Peter smack me if two of those scenes don't look like they were taken from the Starship Troopers movie.
