World War Z




It looks like it might be a fun film but given the source material is a bunch of independent stories about the outbreak, the movie is no doubt going to only be loosely based on the book. I'm going to stay positive here however. What do the rest of you think?

Probably an in name only adaption. Still going to see it, I love zombie flicks.

I plan on seeing it without thinking of the book. It'll make a good zombie flick, but I can't see how they could portray the actual source material.

RE: World War Z
The book actually makes it into my top 5 favourite books ever... this film does look horrifically disappointing. It doesn't look like it will be like the book at all, but I'll still watch it. Y'all know how I am with zombie films, I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

RE: World War Z
Well if they can at least get some of the highlights in like the failed defense in NYC for instance that would be nice. Though thinking about this further I do agree that this will more than likely bare only a thin resemblance to what it started out as. Either way I'm definitely seeing it myself I'm just hoping the director didn't decide to go for lots of zombie sequences and skimp out on everything else like horror tends to do...

So, instead of slowalkers, classical walking undead, we have raging, speeding feral zombies on crack withdrawal? This shit looks badass! Run zombie, RUN!

I'm not sure. I've never read the book; so I'm going in unbiased. It does look interesting, though. The thing that grabbed my attention first? Brad Pitt in a zombie flick.

"Hold on.....an A-list, top-rated actor...in a zombie movie? How does that, um....what's the word.....oh: work?"

So yeah, I suppose I'll check it out. It looks pretty epic. But then, so have many others. I guess we'll find out.

RE: World War Z
My understanding:

The book: a reporter goes around the world collecting stories from survivors after the fact.
The movie: a reporter goes around the world and experiences the stories as they happen.

As much as the "hardcore purists" are dissatisfied, I doubt they would want a movie told in flashbacks by various characters.

I don't know the books, but the preview makes it look like a cool film. I rarely say that about movies, so I hope it will be good.

RE: World War Z
I have not read the book(s), but now I'm more interested in doing so. I should probably wait until AFTER I see the movie though. My first thought on seeing the preview was also.."Brad Pitt, in a zombie movie???". Part of me just assumes it must be good if he is in it. It certainly looks like it has fantastic effects, I can only hope the plot is more, um, original, than so many other zombie movies.
