It's actually a bit of a tradition with horror movies.
I can only think of two within the last 10-15 years: Creepshow and Twilight Zone and those were over a decade ago each, the only other one that springs to mind is "Trilogy of Terror" and that was what? Late 70s?...hardly a tradition.
Couldn't be bothered to type it, so look here.
I did not know there were so many...most of those I've never heard of but a few jog memories I'd forgotten about.
It really looked like a remake of Spielberg's "War of the Worlds." Pass.
Are there even any characters from the book who appear in the film at all?
New Trailer released
Wow, that's an awesome scene on the airplane. I'm just hoping the cgi fast zombies don't look cheesey. The film has potential and unlike with the Walking Dead deals with the world wide zombie acopolypse.
Apparently there was some footage screened recently, and it doesn't sound too promising.
It's one thing for a lighthearted comedy like Warm Bodies to not have any blood and gore... but an intense horror/action flick like WWZ? I just don't know how that wouldn't be distracting as hell.
Since no one cares about World War Z anymore, this topic is now about The Walking Dead.
Did you see the last episode. The death was pretty sad.
I hope they can pull of making the season finale awesome!
So just so we're clear, does this film have *anything* to do with the book now beyond the title and the fact it has zombies? Sure doesn't look like it.
Did we watch the same trailer because all I saw was a bunch of overblown crap with an expensive effects budget?
I'm not seeing WWZ anywhere in there. Or at least what I think of WWZ.
There's info and a big Q&A with the director here.
Reading the interview made me a bit more interested in the film. I'm interested to see what critics say when it eventually comes out.
I thought World War Z would have made a better HBO limited series. But I guess with The Walking Dead around, you're not going to see another zombie TV show like that for the time being.
Given the format of the book, I've always thought it would have been ideal material for a mockumentary style mini-series. The trick would have been tying the various segments together into cohesive episodes.
Fearing Chinese Censors, Paramount Changes 'World War Z' (Exclusive)
So they did the reshoot only for its China release.
And the budget went up to $240M after reshooting.
Hollywood, please stop kissing China's pork fried ass.
They have 1.3 billion people. If only 1/2 of the population is able to consider watching any Hollywood film that still exceeds the entire population's of the US, Canada, and all of Europe.
They'd be fools to not kiss their asses.
World War Z: is Brad Pitt making the most expensive disaster of all time?
