Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter the movie may have been a complete bastardization of the book, but at least they kept it R-rated as the book was very gory.

This is just pathetic now. Not only do they throw the entire book out the window, they make it PG-13?!

I wasn't going to see it before, but now I am not going to see it...er, twice.

BETRAYAL. Seriously this entire project has been disappointing from when the shooting footage as leaked. They've grown the source material into a toxic waste bin as someone else pissed on it. They took away the interview narrative and replaced it with BRAD PITT WILL SAVE THE WORLD.

This is just getting worse and worse.

I enjoyed the book a lot.
This movie looked like crap before but now not even any blood? Insanity!

I'd hoped that this misbegotten idea had been shelved indefinitely. Guess not.

Maybe some people will like this movie, and good for them, but I have no interest in it. I just wish they'd give it a different name so people wouldn't go into the theater expecting something resembling the book.

What if it's all an epic troll and they actually just made these trailers as a joke?

I didn't think the zombies had blood in the book.  I thought they were non liquidic, or some kind of viscous goop inside hence they don't die when they freeze

HAHAHAHAHA! This is the final nail in this piece of shiat coffin. I was waffling on whether or not I would see this based on how shiatty an adaptation it was. Now I know I will absolutely not give them one red cent. fark the producers of this movie and anyone involved in its creation, even Max Brooks to some degree for letting his work be reduced to mass produced shlock for tweens. farking MPAA ratings system has been the cause of more shiatty movie releases than Uwe Boll.

If I recall correctly, the Battle of Yonkers was supposed to be very brutal and bloody. Hell the thermobaric bomb left zombies with their lungs hanging out of their mouths.

And even if they don't bleed, the humans do.

You know, would it be that hard to make the filter capitalize the offending word if it is at the beginning of the sentence. If I have to live with a website protecting my virgin eyes from obscenities, can't I at least count on it not to make my posts look like an illiterate monkey made them?

I'm thinking the people getting munched on dismembered would have plenty of blood. Just apparently not in this movie.

I knew it from the moment I saw Brad Pitt and his crotchfruit in the trailer. Reminded me of Spielberg's bastardization of WotW.

Honestly, I know. But what if is for people who might one day get a chance to make a movie and remember this thread.

Can you get an NC17 for a gory movie? Or rather are there any gory movies in their original NC17 ratings I could get tonight? I could go for a bit of the ultraviolence.

yeah but the headline says zombies.  I concede humans bleed.  Girls have that problem before sleeping with me all the time.

This. Movie ratings have gotten idiotic these days.

That's a shame.  If there's one entertainment void that needs filled these days it's zombie fiction.

Damn trailers don't work on my Linux workstation.  I get sound, but no video.  Seeing as it's almost time to leave work for the weekend, I won't bother trying to fix the problem.

At least they bled.
 
2013-03-29 09:10:10 PM
well that's it then. I'm not seeing this movie. I thought I might give it a chance but not now.
 
2013-03-29 09:15:19 PM
What worried me way more than than the no blood thing was that it apparently takes place over "a couple of days." So it's going to be nowhere near the global, epic scale that it should be. And that probably means the Battle of Yonkers will get a cameo, if that.
/Sigh
 
2013-03-29 09:15:24 PM
The scuttlebutt on this is that Marc Forster is basically too inexperienced to run a real big budget film (his only other one was Quantum of Solace) and that there was no clear direction or creative vision for the movie (which definately comes across in the ham handed adaption and visuals we've been presented with). Compounding the issue is that Paramount wouldn't let Forster bring in his own team and insisted he work with a bunch of people he didn't know - which probably just made the lack of actual (ahem) direction by the director even worse.

At the end of the day they've fired pretty much everyone a couple of times over (except for Pitt and Forster) on this film, have done a couple of months of reshoots and have a big pile of doodle to show for it.

Personally I think the fact that Pitt was attached to this movie screwed it over. There is no way to do a Brad Pitt zombie vehicle for the right kind of money with the hard R rating that it would need to be credible. I understand Pitt was instrumental to bringing the film to the screen - so really, if anything, alot of the blame probably falls on his shoulders - he selected the director, he stars in it and his company is producing it. Really, if anything, it's his failings as a business man and producer that are on display here.

The thing that boggles my mind is - WHY? Why did Pitt want to do this movie so bad if he was just going to fark it all up?
 
2013-03-29 09:15:53 PM
Maybe the twist is that vampires come in and drain all of the blood first :O

For folks who don't realize this yet...

The World War Z is a huge waste of time.


I loved the book. Stunning. The format, the feel, the research, the horror - it was fantastic. The movie will be none of those things.

Pitt supplied the bunk, and Forster's humping it like there's no tomorrow. I'm a huge fan of the book, and I, for one, will not dignify the movie by spending money to see it. If it releases directly to Netflix, then, sure, I may watch it - but, dear God, I won't spend money to see this dog in a theater.

I thought the universe was based on slow zombies, or is that another Hollywood mutation?

Either way from the sound of it I won't even download it

Look, the book was somewhat entertaining, but it doesn't translate to the big screen.  It translates to a comic book or webisodes or something.  And it wasn't like it was high fantasy.

What the FARK is the point of a PG-13 zombie movie?!?!?
 
2013-03-29 09:36:17 PM
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade had blood spurting all over the place and it was a PG-13. Titanic was the last PG-13 movie with boobies that I can think of. It must all depend on who the director is.

Ive said it before and ill say it again, the only way to do the book right would be to give it to a premium cable channel, preferably HBO, and have it basically be Ken Burns: Zombies, because thats basically what it is.
 
2013-03-29 09:39:49 PM

Could you talk a little about the 3D conversion process?

Oh for F*CK'S SAKE. Any possibility of me seeing this in the theater has now been squashed.

You saw in the new trailer, they put the airplane in there. That was not a surprise, but there are a few more left. You haven't seen that in a zombie movie before, outbreak on an airplane.

*BZZZZT!* Oh, I'm sorry, that is incorrect.
