    Saw an old, very short thread with the original trailer, but now that the release is almost upon us I thought I'd start a new one.

    Anyone else think this looks fun? I like Woody H. in most things, and comedy+action+zombies is almost always a sure fire winner as far as I'm concerned. Even if it doesn't turn out to be amazing, it should be entertaining. I think I shall go see it!

    Zombie comedies can be fun, Shaun of the dead comes to mind.

    I can't wait for this. I'm thinking of dressing up as a zombie and seeing this movie on Thursday as a part of the whole "Chicago Zombie March" being planned.

    My friends and I all took off on Friday to see this. We're all zombie fans, and this looks like loads of fun.

    Well, it didn't suck.

    I actually thought it was pretty funny, especially Woody Harrelson's Tallahassee.

    I probably won't go to pay for it in theaters, but I may well pick up the DVD when it comes out in a few months.

    Added bonus, the new trailer for 2012 played before the movie. So, there was that.

    I didn't even know this movie existed until about a week and a half ago. It looks like a lot of fun, so I might check it out next week when I have time.

    I'm checking it out Saturday. I've heard nothing but fantastic things so far.

    Also, look out for a special appearance.

    The movie has grown enough on me that I've changed my mind and am going to see it tomorrow or Sunday evening. Not sure yet. Sometime this weekend. It looks funnier than I originally thought.

    I'll be seeing it Saturday. I think I've inadvertantly found out who is making the cameo appearance, but that should be fun nonetheless.

    It's a pretty entertaining flick but I could have done without the WTF moment (you'll know it when you see it) which I personally didn't think added as much as it took away.

    Yeah same here. I made the mistake of reading the Hollywood Reporter review, and they gave it away. You'd think they would be better at that kind of thing. :rolleyes:

    Oh yeah, I was somewhat distracted because I kept picturing Michael Cera in this movie the entire time.
