The First Official Trailer For ‘World War Z’
Considering all of the production problems that have plagued the film adaptation of ‘World War Z’ part of me was skeptical this film would actually happen. But here’s the first full-length trailer and it’s pretty damn intense. Here’s to keeping fingers-crossed that Marc Forster can bring a sem-faithful adaptation of Max Brook’s zombie pandemic novel to the big-screen.
‘World War Z’ stars Brad Pitt, Mirielle Enos, Bryan Cranston, Matthew Fox, James Badge Dale, Elyes Gabel and David Morse. It opens on June 21, 2013.
Wow. I still have my doubts about how the source material translates into this version but this looks intense. And they at least they took the time to update the BRRAAAWWRWRRMRMRMMM noise.
CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms).
David Daigle, spokesman for Center For Disease Control and Prevention, wrote in an email to The Huffington Post.
This an official statement with regards to the recent string of Zombie-like incidents happening on the East coast of the U.S.
(Honestly, this reeks of a cover up.)
Listen up: This is a very important and exciting development for The Walking Dead. If you left the show because you were “bored” by the first half of season 2 (I get it, Sophia was a drag) then you need to get back into it. The arrival of Michonne (the hooded Samuri with zombie pets) means one thing: drama. Get ready for season 3. A few other temptations: that prison and the Governor.
AMC’s apocalyptic zombie saga The Walking Dead is the rare television show that dares to ask the question: Just how many ways can you blow off someone’s head? And what if that head belonged to, say, your sister? With the show returning for its second season of gratuitous arterial spray this coming Sunday, GQ’s Devin Gordon spoke to the creator of the original comic book (and a writer on the TV version) Robert Kirkman about what’s to come. Executive summary: nothing pleasant. Also, check out GQ’s highly scientific betting odds—courtesy of io9’s undead correspondent Meredith Woerner—on which of the folks in the photo above will survive season two, and which ones won’t.
GQ: Is there a limit to just how grim the show can be without driving people away? I suppose that’s the calling card of the show, so…
Robert Kirkman: Yeah. [laughs] It’s gonna get pretty dark. This is a show about people who die and come back to life and eat people. Living in a world where that happens is no great shakes, know what I mean? But we’re always trying to balance it. The show is extremely dark and somewhat depressing, but we don’t want it to be a complete downer. We don’t want you to be sitting down on Sunday nights and go, “Oh my gosh, this is just unrelenting.” It’s a weird thing. We have to make sure there is a little bit of hope. But it’s a dark show, and we’re going to be playing with that.
GQ: In the first season, I don’t even remember seeing a character smile until they got inside the CDC and finally got to take a shower.
Robert Kirkman: [laughs] A shower will do that. But I think that’s the appeal of the show: it’s a realistic take on what it would be like after the fall of civilization, what would happen if normal people—not super-cops or military geniuses or super-scientists—were thrown into this situation. And luckily I think the audience is into exploring that. Personally, I would be cowering in a corner behind a locked door listening to my friends get eaten by zombies outside. I have a very low regard for how I would handle these situations.
Dead Island’s trailer not the game is basis for new movie.
“The trailer will serve as [the movie’s] primary creative inspiration,” Lionsgate says in a press release, “Focus [is] on human emotion, family ties and non-linear storytelling.
“Like the hundreds of journalists and millions of fans who were so passionate and vocal about the Dead Island trailer, we too were awestruck,” says Joe Drake, Lionsgate’s co-COO.
The trailer, which won the Golden Lion in Cannes at the International Festival of Creativity, actually has nothing to do with the game itself outside of introducing the basic concept of zombies on the island.
