Saw them filming this last Summer in Glasgow.

Even in the trailer some of the locations are so familiar. I'm not too optimistic that the movie will be that great though...we'll see.

kinda seems like zombies are usually slow because they're slowing decaying, speedy ones doesn't make as much sense. but it's awesome and scary.

Meh, the book was so overrated and the movie looks incredibly cheesy.

Has the zombie gendre jumped the shark yet?

Zombies seem more like ants to me. Kind of a cool/different approach to traditional zombie films. However, I don't like zombie movies, so I'd imagine the 'traditionalists' may not like this departure from the traditional portrayal of zombies.

Yeah, i made a thread about this when i first saw the trailer. But it was about which zombies do you prefer, fast ones or classic.

Looks like an alright movie. Hopefully better than 28 days later, although that had it's own appeal.

i love zombie movies, and--i'll admit it--i love brad pitt as well. so i'll see this, but i think it looks pretty terrible judging by that trailer, which looks literally like every other summer blockbuster trailer ever made

I'd really really love to see a movie made with elements of a romantic comedy, a bit of historical significance, a vampire protagonist and zombie antagonists so as to have all of the Hollywood "flavors of the week" all in one film so they can move on to making movies about things that HAVEN'T been hashed and rehashed umpteen thousand times. Are there no original ideas for movies anymore?

I have seen Django Unchained and Looper off of that list, and also Cloud Atlas. I will grant that there are exceptions and very noted exceptions (Django was one of the best films I have seen all year) but there have been a staggering amount of vampire/werewolf/zombie movies in the last two or three years and it gets tiresome having to weed through those to get to the more intriguing and original storylines. Looper was pretty good but a bit long, as was Cloud Atlas...and yeah I'm aware Django was nearly three hours long but there wasn't any part of that movie that dragged on so much I wondered what time it was.

Seems like it could be fun to watch and will check it out. The last zombie flick I enjoyed was Shaun of the dead. Zombieland was also entertaining.
