Clearly we just need to Kickstarter our own adaptation.

Ech. They went and changed it into standard Hollywood muck. Brad Pitt saves the wife and kiddies and he's the ONE MAN WHO CAN SAVE US ALL!!!!

Did those bozos even read the book?

PS, it occured to me that Paul Redeker was the savior of the world in the book, but he sure didn't do it by being an action hero and Hollywood wouldn't touch that story with a ten foot pole.

Yeah, this looks like another Big Dumb Action Movie™.

I'll take The Walking Dead over this anyday.

All it needs is Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum.

I've never read the book, so I have no context of whats different, but I think this looks pretty damn cool. I like the different take on the zombie outbreak that what has been seen before. And this is from someone who finds the whole zombie genre incredibly boring, including The Walking Dead.

That's the problem with this movie. This movie looks like it will have nothing to do with the book. Why bother calling it World War Z if they doing follow the book at all except for the token gesture of giving one of the character the same?

Like what? All I saw was Standard Hollywood Tropes(TM) plus some action scenes.

We've got the Spielbergian hero, wife and cute kids in tow. For reasons unexplained, he has some special ability to fight zombies that makes his indispensable (not even sure what they're getting at there - immune to zombie bites, has magic healing blood or what?) It's all old hat, I felt like I've already seen this movie.

But basing a movie on the book structure, complete with the anthlogy format, would have been an interesting departure from the norm. The anthology format provides a particularly eerie effect, since you only get bits and pieces of the story and it takes a while to put it all together, like just seeing glimpses of things in a darkened room.

It also allows the story to be told from the perspective of people all over the world, which sells the idea that this is a monstrous, global threat, instead of focusing mainly on just one character, who of course must be a white male.

Why did they go with terrible CGI zombies? Reminds me of the shitty zombies in I Am Legend.

They should have gone the zombie makeup route which The Walking Dead effectively uses weekly.

I think this would have been so much better as some kind of miniseries on HBO instead of a movie. If it was on cable, they could actually do the multiple perspectives thing, and not be forced to tell it in under two hours.
