I have read the book, which is told as a story gathered after the worst of the zombie apocalypse is over.  It's interesting at times, often going back to the basics:  like the military focusing on 1 bullet, 1 dead zombie, maximum employment of minimum firepower to conserve resources. 

The trailer makes it look like this is a big action movie with lots of fast moving zombies.  That's not like the book at all, so they're simply using the title.

Ehhhhh......
I liked the book but I just can't get excited about WWZ.  I'm kinda burned out on zombies anyway.  Also, there's been a lot of issue/delay with the production on this, which is rarely a good sign for the end result.

I'm worried about the PG-13 rating and also the fact that they basically re-shot the entire movie as it tested very poorly from what I read. I hope that it does wind being cool but you can't really show any zombie carnage in a PG-13 movie and the whole aspect of them having these superhuman abilities and acting like ants could go either way with me too.

Whoa whoa whoa. Hold up.  

A PG-13 rated movie about a war against zombies?  How do they expect that to work?  

... eh, I suppose it's just as well.  I'm getting tired of zombies anyway.

I read and loved and book and I even got the abridged audiobook which was also good, so I had mixed feelings when I read there was going to be a movie.  I didn't know how they would pull it off, but I kept checking for updates and I was so excited when I heard the first trailer was out; then I watched the trailer and lost all interest in seeing the movie.  In the span of what a 2 or 3 minute trailer I went from "I will watch this in 3D on IMAX!" to "It might be a rental if there are no other options."  The trailer made it very clear that no one bothered to read the book or even talk to Max Brooks.  They had the name and that's all that mattered.  I watched the new trailer after seeing Trekgeezer's post, and it was just bad.  Watching a zombie run up the back of a car and leap off the roof to tackle someone was just wrong.

The trailer I saw looked as though millions of ants were turning cars over and blowing up buildings.  Question

I am certainly familiar with the book, having delved into sections of it, if not the whole book itself, and because of that, and because everybody here is seemingly talking about the film version of it, I did what I normally do not do, and I took a look at the trailer. And I must say . . . it looks effective, and Brad Pitt looks effective in his role in the film. That is not to say that it inspires me enough to go see it, when it comes out in June. Since it is by Paramount, it does make me wonder how it'll do at the box office, and whether it'll bomb like some of the people here think it might. Well, Disney, Universal, and Warner all have had films that bombed this year or last, so Paramount will be in good company. One final thought, I do wonder whether it is one of those American films that actually might do better overseas than here at home.

Don't get me wrong, I think the movie will do REALLY well at the box office. I'm disappointed that they took the Romero zombies from the books and turned them into the running, jumping, acrobatic zombies of today. I was really excited about this film until I watched the first trailer, when my wife saw it she was excited and wants to see it. Personally I will wait for a rental.

Ratings and original sources aside, I'm curious about how they handle the nature of the "zombie plague" in the film.

As I've explained to people I know, a "zombie" virus is possible. By that, I mean there are illnesses that turbo-charge the body's metabolism and require high protein intake, which would cover the cannibalism element. There are illnesses that destroy the brain's higher, rational functions, which would cover the willingness to attack anything and the herd instinct actions of mass attacks to move or overcome anything that gets in the herd's path. It is not outside the realm of reason for a virus to mutate these two elements to create a kind of "zombie".

If they approach it in a somewhat scientific, clinical way (and it doesn't really look like it), they might have a pretty interesting spin on what could possibly happen.

But then, I don't think the masses want a brainy zombie film.

That reminds of me a post I read on cracked a while back.  It was a fun and educational explanation of how zombies could exist.

My point exactly. So, scoff at the look of WWZ, but it may be more likely than we want to think.

Not that I'm paranoid, because I'm NOT, okay? I KNOW you are all out to get me. I see what you're up to. So just BACK OFF!! These are MY Twinkies, damn you!!!
