Meh. I just can't I see any aspect of World War Z in that trailer. I can hardly tell that's even a zombie movie. I am unenthused about this.

It definitely doesn't look anything like the book. But, I think a movie based closely on the book would be boring as all hell. The battle of Yonkers was cool the way it was written, but can you imagine that in a film? 20 minutes dedicated to killing zombies, half an hour dedicated to how the soldiers switch ammo and sleep in shifts. They could've attempted to make it closer to the book without making it boring, yeah, but I'd still watch that.


But, I'm also a Brad Pitt superfan.

Agree with the previous posts. Though maybe it was because they thought that slow, shambling zombies wouldn't catch on again. I could deal with another point of view on World War Z (heck, they could've put in some cameos from the book or something), but it doesn't seem to stick to, well, the canon.

I think if there would be a World War Z like the book it'd have to be like, Dr Horrible and maybe be done in an online weekly thing where each week you get a new chapter or two of it.

That or a tv show like what I just mentioned though I feel an online thing would be better as they wouldn't have to deal with the tv studios and stuff.

As for the trailer we have, I knew it would end up like this from what people had been saying for months. I'll probably still see it not because of the name, but because it's a movie that seems not bad.

Also like Log I super fucking love Brad Pitt

I like his movies, I was just joking about it. Also he totally is starting to look like Robert Redford...

I think a more ambitious crew could have done a movie that followed the book in spirit. And anthology movies have been made, Jet Li's Hero, Pulp Fiction, so I think there was definitely options that could have been more like the book, but this... We got a really throw-away plot, we have to stahp the zambies! That trailer just makes me feel like they're embarrassed to try and sell this as a zombie movie at all. If I didn't know World War Z, I'd have no clue that was a zombie movie. I can just feel that the phrase 'not your typical zombie movie' will be uttered by any actor that gets interviewed about this movie. I know we were warned though, I remember groaning when the plot synopsis was released, and yes I will still go see it as well.
