I doubt this film will have much of a connection to the novel other than the title. The novel is done vignette style with no single protagonist and switches locations and characters rapidly and drastically. It's very good at treating the zombie plague as a world encompassing event. The little stories are interconnected only in that they deal with the plague.

The novel is fantastic due to what it implies rather than what it states directly--that single lives are of no real consequence when government is confronted by something so vast and devastating. The novel is also VERY ironic and satirical, and I doubt any of that will make it into the film.

This will be the story of Brad Pitt and his family and survival in a Hollywood-style catastrophe. Nothing new here.

What I did like about the trailers were the huge dogpiles of zombies--hundreds and hundreds at a time--moving like some hive-like single organism that just overwhelms everything in its path. That aspect of the film--at least--appears to be something new.

Saw the trailer with Star Trek today, looks kinda neat, but had ZERO mention, indication, or even any sort of good visual to let you know it was about zombies at all, wth?

Seems to be mostly about Brad Pitt finding someone and hooking back up with his family

I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

They have a Blob- or Slither-like M.O. Where's the zombie makeup? How does one differentiate a chaser from a fleer when everyone is running everywhere? Nondescript chaos.

I hated that dog pile scene with the zombies and everyone running at warp speed I will give it a view, but I have very low expectations for it.

A friend and I saw the trailer before Evil Dead and after it was over my friend asked me if I knew what it was about. When I replied zombies the look on his face was so confused. He couldn't believe it.

Seriously, trailer guys, you need to show someone biting someone else. Without biting, you're left wondering why all the "normal" people are stampeding in panicked desperation.

Putting out of my mind that I know this is a zombie movie, I watch the trailers, waiting for them to reveal what the fuck everyone's scared of. And they don't.

And the title. World War 'Z'? In some parts of the English-speaking world, the whole World War Z/Three thing tends to get lost because 'Z' rhymes with 'Ted'. World War Zed? Does that mean World War Final because 'Z' is the last letter of the alphabet?

Okay, so it's the final World War. Who the hell is fighting? And why? And why is everyone trampling one another? Is someone having a sale?

Show me a fucking zombie. At this point, it almost feels as though the producers of this movie are embarrassed that they've made a zombie apocalypse movie.

Or is it just me?

Because the trailer looks pretty bad, and I had just finished re-reading the book. I wish it was more based on the actual book. The format would have needed to be tweaked for a movie, but it could have worked if it were more faithful.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't think Pitt even bothered reading the book, I think he merely wiped his ass with a copy of World War Z and than smeared it onto film... and this abortion is what we are left with. For all you people defending it, God Bless You, I hope you enjoy it but as for me I'll catch it late one night on cable when I'm really bored, maybe I'll be shocked and discover it to be great but I'm doubting that

I saw the trailer again last time at the movies and there is nothing here which even suggests zombies.

I'm guessing the general public have no fucking clue to what the Z actually stands for.

Too picky?



I'm one of the least pickiest people on here. It looks like complete shit. Typical generic looking Hollywood action flick. It's I am Legend but with another overpaid Hollywood actor.

Plus a PG-13 zombie flick? RETARDED.
