Re: WORLD WAR Z trailer is out now! Starring Brad Pitt
I don't know why people are bitching, it wouldn't really be possible to make a film based on the actual book. There's too many characters and no really "plot", This film appears to be about the original events that the book is based set after... just with running zombies
I dislike running Zombies as a whole, but this actually looks like they've thought about what a major city would look like with a large scale infection and that's something that most films actively run away from even attempting. They would be clambering all over each other, there would be a mass pile of bodies where they tried to reach people and in a major city there would be an uncountable number of them all coming at you at once.
While it wasn't the most exciting trailer I've ever seen I have to give them credit for even trying that.
To be honest, the main thing that I'd want them to keep from the book isn't the characters or specific situations... it's the attention to detail and the attempt, at all times, to keep things real and not go escalating situations like little kids. Because that's where "Hollywood" usually fucks up.
