Screw the haters, this looks farking awesome.
 
2013-03-23 07:01:04 PM  
Just needs a different name.

Uh, no.  It looks over-CGed and absurd.

Not to mention the fact that it spits in the face of the book.

All I can say is, when the majority of the population of the world becomes zombified, it is horribly inefficient for a military force to use bullets to stop them - it's not like large scale manufacturing is going on. Might as well bomb the shiat out of everything with the biggest stuff you've got.
 
2013-03-23 07:28:32 PM  
Oh..they're remaking 'I am Legend' from the military point of view?

Because Hollywood has a long history of word for word adaptations of the source material, right?

I'm not sure what your point was with this comment?

Were you implying that because Hollywood is traditionally terrible at making good adaptions of source material, therefore we should never be upset when they continue to be terrible? I mean... what am I suppose to do, pretend this  isn't supposed to be based on a book?

Okay! Fantasy lands sound fun! Boy, this World War Z thing sure sounds great! Wow, a zombie movie told from the perspective of the whole world, that sounds cool, I can't believe no one ever thought of it before!

Just because a movie isn't a scene for scene adaptation, it doesn't make it terrible. I like when they change things up from the book. It would be pretty damn boring going to movies knowing everything that was going to happen. biatching about a movie not following the book is one of those things internet folk just like to do for some reason.
 
2013-03-23 07:52:14 PM  
They're making movies about zombies now?

Oh, okay. So your argument really  is that we're not allowed to be upset about adaptations. Well, uh, in that case, I guess I'm not allowed to even mention things like your "scene for scene" strawman, because that's just an argument about how adaptations should be done, and since you said that we're not allowed to ever have a problem with how a movie adopts source material, I guess I should just shut up or whatever.

/nice strawman, though!

You're pretty damn upset about what looks to be an entertaining time at the movies.
 
2013-03-23 07:57:01 PM  
It looks like it could be a reasonably fun film, but the only thing it appears to share with World War Z is that it has zombies in it.
 
2013-03-23 07:59:38 PM  

Popcorn Johnny: You're pretty damn upset about what looks to be an entertaining time at the movies.


First half of my original comment was me saying that it did not look to be entertaining, but looked to be a boring, overblown, and absurd CG-fest. Even if I didn't know about the source material, it's the kind of movie I'd probably watch a couple years later on Netflix on a boring Tuesday night.

And I'm not being upset, I'm being  sarcastic. Because of your trolling.
 
2013-03-23 08:07:38 PM  
what crap!
 
2013-03-23 08:08:23 PM  
Looks fun. Get mad about it.
 
2013-03-23 08:11:02 PM  
Meh. We've already reached "peak-Zombie" some months ago...
 
2013-03-23 08:11:59 PM  

The_Bishop82: Just needs a different name.


From the end of the trailer maybe "Zombies on a Plane"?

/yes, I know it's already been done

Not even the same kind of zombies, so actually its a pretty weak connection.

The idea of his family should have died in the executive's bathroom like the coked-up whore.

I mean seriously, "Daddy, what are martial lawr?"

So you've never read the book but are complaining about it not following the book? Awesome man, just plain awesome.
 
2013-03-23 08:22:53 PM  
I don't know what you saw, but the advertisement for "Finish" detergent moving across America was more frightening to me than the movie trailer.
 
2013-03-23 08:24:10 PM  

Forbidden Doughnut: Meh. We've already reached "peak-Zombie" some months ago...


I've been zombied out for years now, I think. It's just hard to get excited about 'yet another zombie thing'.  Oh farking yay, how new and edgy and exciting! You're doing...excatly what every other farking person has done for 5 years now.

Is that your attempt at sarcasm? Because how else would you take "Even if I didn't know about the source material" to mean "I don't know about the source material."

Of course I've read the book. Have  you?

I shall make it horrifying to you.

Modern Hollywood thinks this is a good trailer.

naughtyrev: All I can say is, when the majority of the population of the world becomes zombified, it is horribly inefficient for a military force to use bullets to stop them - it's not like large scale manufacturing is going on. Might as well bomb the shiat out of everything with the biggest stuff you've got.


IIRC, the book postulates that the major killing force in bomb - concussive force - is much less effective at killing zombies than it is at killing humans. Unfortunately, I think what we've learned about IEDs and how the brain gets scrambled in explosions might negate that premise.
 
2013-03-23 08:26:32 PM  
Well.. at least the CGI zombies look way better than they did in the first run of the trailer.
 
2013-03-23 08:26:52 PM  
Looks awesome. F*ck the book.
 
2013-03-23 08:30:46 PM  
While it has nothing to do with the book, it doesn't look too bad. If I wasn't completely bored with zombies, I'd probably go see it.

And in my opinion, the novel version was pretty stupid. It had some interesting bits, but it was obvious that it started as a fairly amateurish short-story.

Nope, not much into reading fiction. The few fictional books I've read that were turned into movies didn't get me all butt hurt though. One of them is even considered a masterpiece of film making, The Shining.

Read day by day armageddon. It is a better story, and explains in tactical detail why that is a bad idea.

/Also, WWZ did a pretty good job of explaining some reasons why as well.

And? The book was fun, but overrated.
 
2013-03-23 08:44:44 PM  
This movie is going to make Dawn of the Dead look like Night of the Comet!

/I don't know what that means, either.
//Fast zombies =  more blurry CGI bullshiat
 
2013-03-23 08:45:22 PM  
Aren't zombies supposed to just be mindless hordes that hunt brains?  These ones are clearly have some sort of collective will, like giant ants.  Not really a fan of this take on them.

28 Days Later had fast zombies, and it was pretty good.

Even if you didn't think the book was all that good, it's still better than this crap-fest.

The book also presupposes that zombies are immune to entropy.  Everything breaks down in time. It's farking retarded that dead flesh can walk the earth for eternity without having problems with decay or slowly grinding their limbs down to nothing on the pavement.

Hey now, don't hate on 28 Days later or the new Dawn of the Dead, they were good movies.  However, blatant disregard for source material REALLY PISSES ME OFF.

Also, this.  Congealed blood is not immune to shockwaves.  Otherwise we could just have our soldiers coat themselves in the blood of their enemies.

Because your position is "I didn't get upset about the one or two fiction books I like that got adapted into movies, therefore no person ever is allowed to take issue with adaptations."
