    Default Full Trailer For World War Z - A Zombie Apocalypse Of Epic Proportions

    This World War Z trailer frames zombie action not as 'cabin in the woods' survivalism but epic, global disaster on a Roland Emmerich scale.



    Of course, looking at that, I can't help but wonder what comes from the original shoot and what comes from the recent reworking.

    Max Brooks' original book was on a huge scale, and featured a wide array of characters. This film, or at least this trailer, is hanging on the rather more typical model of a hero struggling to stay afloat in a world going to hell. The family stuff is very reminiscent of other pictures too, not least Spielberg's War of the Worlds.

    See the trailer in HD at Apple.

    That looks godawful. This abomination won't even do a fraction of the source material justice.

    They could just as easily been hive mind aliens or something. By portraying them as an amorphous swarm, this trailer makes the idea that they are the risen dead almost irrelevant.

    I was there when they were filming that sequence!

    Personally I love the look of it. Takes the genre to a whole new level. And yes, I read the book and loved it. And yes, this is a film, not a book.
