Zombie Thread

Specifically - the trailer for the upcoming "World War Z"

Looks fun. I enjoyed the book. I like how they have used "fast zombies".


Hopefully all the action isn't in the trailer, and the movie maintains pace.

Before he did it, I'd have said it couldn't be done.

I just hope I can remember to add a remark to this thread three or four years from now.

Don't worry, I'll keep bumping it like I do with the "best motorcycle to flee from Zombies" thread.

If the movie is half as good as the trailer it will be great movie. Come on summer!

The books were quite good, and it looks like they had plenty of budget. I'm not a big movie fan in general, but I'd give it a go.

I know - it goes without saying really. They are ALL good, aren't they?

Kirkus, if you haven't already, try the book. It's World War Z by Max Brooks. It's a somewhat different take on the old story and a pretty good read.

I think the movie will be rather different to the book, but that's OK. The book is more a collection of stories, the movie has to focus around one character.

Still, the way those fast zombies swarm over everything in the trailer is pretty good fun.

I saw this trailer over the weekend...the zombies should be cool since its a "big money" production...if true I dont care about the plot...

Not a fan of the speedy rage zombies...but the scene of them jumping off the building after the helicopter and flipping over the bus is pretty cool...
