    I thought the wave was utterly ridiculous, @the-movieghost. However, it'll probably be a pretty cool albeit extremely cheesy "wow" moment within context upon watching it in theaters. We'll see how it goes, but I liked the sloppy and chaotic way that zombies seemed to be mowing down the streets. It's like the infected from 28 Days and 28 Weeks Later on steroids. :P

    Well good thing movie are for people who don't give a sh*t about books!! I think it looks pretty intense, and the zombies are refreshingly super active and savage. Hope the CGI gets a touch up. But Im in all the way on this one.

    I think that's one of the coolest previews ever. I think it looks better than Lone Ranger.

    If you love the book and are mad that this film isnt true, then just go see the film for what it is and like it or hate it. I think this will be a very good movie and look forward to it.

    As a fan of the book, this is disappointing. I understand things need to change to translate to a movie audience--I'm fine with that, but from this trailer it looks like they've gone out of their way to make this as different as possible. If it didn't have the name "World War Z" on it, I wouldn't even recognize it.

    @narrator...Ur right about it not being fully faithfull to the book, here's what i found about how they came about doing and changing the screenplay from the book to just making it a zombie action flick:

    " The screenplay was written by J. Michael Straczynski, with Marc Forster directing, and Pitt starring as the main character, United Nations employee Gerry Lane. Despite being the draft that got the film green-lit, Straczynski's script was tossed aside, so that production, which was to begin at the start of 2009, was delayed while the script was completely re-written by Matthew Michael Carnahan to set the movie in the present, leaving behind much of the premise of the book to make it more of an action film. "

    I really want to see the defecting submarine story and the Louisiana (mysterious radio) story. If you've read it, you know what I mean.

    There are some very effecting tales in Brooks' novel, more so than what I was expecting. I cant wait to see how this turns out.

    I am sooo happy to see that moment when the zombies are climbing over the ...er....dead zombies.

    I love love LOVE this book and couldn't see how it would be filmed without it being an anthology of flashbacks (so to speak). I hope they found a way to tie all the stories together without feeling too disjointed but also keep it faithful t Brooks' brilliant book.

  25. the Narrator

    Yeah, definitely not looking to be a faithful adaption. If there isn't even a mention of the Battle of Yonkers, there will be hell fire from the novels fans (myself included). I was really hoping they were going the "reporter" route with Pitt, but it looks like that isn't the case here. Some of the CGI looked a bit like I Am Legend, but they have time to sharpen that up. And of course, as @bawnian-dexeus pointed out, this trailer blare is ever present and really annoying.

    Now, that being said, this looks kick ass and I can't wait. :P

    I don't know anything about the book, but I'll see this just for Brad Pitt and the running zombies.

    Seriously, why the f*ck would zombies be slow? Zombies running towards me at full speed? Now that would be scary...
