World War Z Trailer

Post  Desert Sleepy on 10th November 2012, 4:36 pm

I'm guessing a lot of people have at least heard that they've been doing a World War Z movie. I remember reading in a news article how it was about one man trying to save the world in the nick of time and thinking "WHAT THE FUCK THOSE COCKSUCKERS THEY SOILED THE GOOD WORLD WAR Z NAME! SOILED IT! SOILED IT! SOILED IT! SOILED IT!" but then I kind of forgot about it for a while.

Anyway, I saw a trailer for it today.



That public domain glass breaking noise from Happy Wheels in the first thirty seconds. Then a really bad looking (although it's far away to be fair) explosion. Then I started wondering why it seems that zombies are setting buildings on fire. And then there are so many zombies sprinting and jumping over a bus that it tips over, as it makes public domain tipping over noises. And then they go to that thing mentioned in the zombie survival guide, how zombies in an area could get so crowded that they'll start piling on top of each other to form a ramp over the top of a high wall. Except they do it all wrong. Instead or requiring so many that it makes a nice, large ramp, the zombies just form a sharp spire and use their elite zombie climbing skills to climb over each other. What a crock of shit. Olympic climbers would probably have trouble trying to pull that shit off.

Guessing what's going on in the trailer.
Spoiler:
From the trailer, it looks like that "one man trying to save the world" shit was pretty accurate. Here's what seems to be happening. Brad Pitt and his family are dicking around in New York City, when the zombies show up. Mayhem, etc, so he steals a truck and catches a flight out of the city because apparently he's some sort of guy with connections. Amazingly, they're not too late (cliched bullshit, being too late), but they do just make it in time, which is equally cliched, and they escape the city to some boat. Some sort of big Navy boat. Brad Pitt is apparently some sort of super qualified secret agent bullshit and agrees to go help some people. He hangs out with what some YouTube commentator said looked to be IDF conscripts while they fend off the... infected. The infected, by the way, move faster than humans somehow, and are significantly more agile, and have a tendency to travel in constantly tripping over each other waves. They seem more like the vampire things from I Am Legend than zombies.

So Brad Pitt gets his family out of New York to a safe and crowded boat where nothing bad could possibly happen, then goes to Israel to fight with the IDF and help them out. Why is he particularly qualified to deal with them, and why send him apparently unarmed? Whatever. Looks lame. Seemingly NOTHING has been retained from the book. Not even close to the same concept. An entirely different type of zombie even, for fuck's sake. So basically, the rights to make World War Z have been taken to make a big budget action movie, meaning if you wanted to see a World War Z movie anytime soon at all, you're fucked. The CGI looks pretty unconvincing, but I'll admit the whole literal wave of zombies thing looks interesting. Overall though, looks like an action movie completely unrelated to World War Z. Also, apparently part of it was written by the guy who wrote Lost and Prometheus, both of which had no shortage of people shitting on it for being bullshit for supposedly patching up plot holes by saying the audience was just supposed to fill them in. Because when I watch TV and movies, I want to do all the work for the writers. It's YOUR story I want to watch, if I want to imagine shit for it I'll do it on my own time. But while watching the program, I want to see your story, not make my own Frankenstein's monster fan-fiction of it.


Har-har at the "gun-metal realism" part. They tossed that shit completely out the window, judging from this trailer. But it's great that they've already got it planned as a franchise before the first one even comes out, real good sign that they care about the World War Z name and aren't just trying to wring money from it.

So I'm not optimistic about this movie. Too many differences for me to associate it at all with World War Z, so I basically just have the trailer to go off of. Trailer doesn't look like something I'd want to watch. Looks like a Michael Bay movie, what with all the hecticness and shooting. The action scenes look to be soldiers firing endlessly into endless crowds of zombies. Not really appealing to me. And it's planned to be PG-13. How in the hell can you even get PG-13 with zombies? I'm assuming they cut out zombies spraying blood when shot, which would actually make sense for slow zombies, but not fast ones. But still, will the zombies not have blood all over them? Are they not going to kill or eat anyone? How the hell do you get a PG-13 rating for a fucking zombie movie? I'm not even mad about that, just perplexed. Anyway, any thoughts on the movie?

I completely agree. This looks like absolute shit. Even the acting in first part of the trailer is awful. It's nothing short of generic and annoying.
The visuals, like you said, don't even look like that great and follow no logic what so ever.
That and the concept looks like the military has no problem carpet bombing large sections of their own cities, zombies aren't, in fact, terrifying, and no one has any other plan to fix anything except slaughter everything in sight.

And why did they decide to use a well connected military man? IRL, he'd be safe on base, 200 miles in the middle of the Atlantic.

I'll just go watch 'Rec' instead.
