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.
i've no idea what i am talking about! you'll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thiiiiiiiiiiiiiinkin'.
(i'm trapped in this body and can't get out.) how come i end up where i started?.

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.

The World War Z trailer ones might, they're like watered down Dead Men of Dunharrow from LOTR:ROTK or something.

Sometimes you just have to go with the classics.

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?

Are there no original ideas for movies anymore?


in the last two years, here's a sample of critically acclaimed films, or movies from acclaimed directors:

django unchained (despite having that "tarantino feel")
beasts of the southern wild
tree of life
looper
moonrise kingdom (despite having that "wes anderson feel")
50/50
drive
take shelter
midnight in paris (despite having that "woody allen feel")
black swan
the master
seven psychopaths
cosmopolis
killing them softly
cabin in the woods
shame

while you may not like these movies, you certainly can't say they lack originality, even if some of them do wear the stamp of their respective filmmaker quite obviously. and this is only using American/Canadian examples.

i'm pretty sure people just say hollywood lacks creativity because of how much money the 'hollywood machine' puts behind the marketing of their summer blockbusters. otherwise the criticism doesn't make any sense to me. lots of original content comes out each year, people just don't go see it.

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.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.
