wildcardjack: This looks like the sort of adaptation The Moon is a Harsh Mistress would receive.


If someone takes that idea and runs with it, I will hunt you down and turn your femurs into pencil holders.

Then slingshot them from tycho under to the NA Directorate.

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.

Max Brooks should have gotten his dad to direct the movie.

How fun would that have been?

huscarl91: Similarly, the movie "I am Legend" pretty much fails to tell Asimov's Matheson's story


I think you're confusing the disappointment of I, Robot with the disappointment of I Am Legend.

nitefallz: AntonChigger: madgonad: verbaltoxin: That's when you bring in the MOAB's and daisy cutters. They literally vaporize everything within blast radius. If the battle's that far gone, that ordinance would be deployed. I'm not even getting into the STS missile arsenal yet.

No No NO

Large ordnance even now is only used to collapse tunnels, clear vegetation, and psychologically frighten the enemy.They just don't kill that many real people within 100' of detonation. When zombie physiology is factored, the zombie-kill radius of MOAB might be 20'. Pressure and shrapnel that will incapacitate humans does almost nothing to zombies.

I know this is a fictional scenario, and I'm not military, but I'm pretty sure if you stood 100' feet away from where a piece of large ordnance landed, you would be dead and/or pulverized

A human, yes. The killing factor is the concussion wave from the blast. It damages the internal organs. The zombies don't give a shiat about that. And the shockwave to the brain isn't damaging enough to kill them I'm assuming, based on what was described in the book.


Isn't the brain an internal organ. I guess I can just chalk it up to coagulated blood and concussion proof zombie brains that survive concussion blasts from large explosives but not a direct baseball bat to the head... wait. Yeah, no, I'm pretty sure a blast wave like would pulp the brain. That being said, I love zombies as much as the next guy, so I'm more than willing to suspend my disbelief, but it makes it harder when the writer is trying so hard to be real.

Obviously the whole movie takes place in a dream or something. How else do you explain the dump truck that manages to quietly sneak through a traffic jam to suddenly explode past our protagonist?

Confabulat: B.L.Z. Bub: Because foes that are complete morons are totally believable as threats to humanity.

The CGI zombies look like the swarming orcs doing battle in Lord of the Rings from 10 years ago. Except worse.

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.

I couldn't watch that trailer without the niggling thought... "wasn't it filmed in Glasgow?"

Yes, it was. From that article:

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.


Aaah.

The producers wanted to make it easier for themselves.

/Hope they got an Old Firm match day too, for hordes of mindless zombies aimlessly wandering around.

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.


If zombies can talk, we're all dead.
