    Looks shite. Another 28 Days movie. Little to do with the books, just the fast zombies alone ruin it. I remember that Brad Pitt's prod company and Leo DeCaprio's prod company were fighting over the rights to this. Wonder what Leo would have done?

    It's a kind of second part of zombieland, but more serious. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wor…

    I've read the book. That is why I dislike the trailer. Have you read the book? And Zombieland? Huh?

    This says it all:

    In 2007, the movie rights for World War Z were secured by Brad Pitt's production company, Plan B Entertainment.[26] The screenplay was written by J. Michael Straczynski, with Marc Forster directing, and Pitt starring as the main character, United Nations employee Gerry Lane.[27][28] 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. Filming finally commenced mid-2011.

    Yeah, I guess you haven't read Max Brooks' books.
    The Zombie Survival Guide has nothing to do with Zombieland. The Survival guide was written 100% serious with sound techniques to survive in a zombie-infested world. Other than the idea of zombies themselves, it's full plausible in it's techniques and strategies.

    World War Z was a follow up by the author, but not a second part or sequel. Again, it was written from a very real perspective and explored global social, military, economic and public responses if something like this would occur.

    That trailer appears to show nothing but a CGI action flick, rather than something more deliberate and intelligent as the source material should have spawned.

    Yet another post-apocalypse zombie film. How about Hollywood finally get it over with, and turn this into a the film they seem to really to want to make, yeah:

    The swarming CGI zombies are just rubbing me the wrong way. Maybe I'm spoiled after watching The Walking dead, and other movies where they're done well...this looks bad. I'm sure I'll see it, but the zombies look like a bug swarm from Starship Troopers.

    • I think that's why I like it...it's different than typical slow moving brainless zombies we are all use toFawnDog1/2
      Fast zombies were in the Return of the Living in the 80s and obviously 28 days/weeks.ETM2/2

    How often does a movie live up to the/a book?

    If you see it as just another action flick, with zombies, I'm sure it's at least download-worthy.

    I do not have high hopes for World War Zed, but it's interesting to see a big-budget blockbuster take on zombies.

    Yeah it's not the book.
    Bit of a scam to use the title to sell something so different.
