Default World War Z...

DISCLAIMER: This is NOT advertising; it's intended as sharing information & nothing more.

I'm a fan of zombie movies & zombie books. I've been waiting a few years for Max Brooks' book World War Z to be made into a movie...
And now it has! I hope it lives up to the book.

I am very excited too. Also interested to see how the screeplay/plot is organized compared to the style if the book.

I was excited when I heard the book was being made into a movie. Then started to doubt it when Brad Pitt signed on as the lead. Nothing against him, I just couldn't imagine someone from Hollywood mainstream as the movie lead. When I saw the trailer my heart sank. Call me old-fashioned, but I'm not a fan of the fast moving zombies. Particularly zombies that overwhelm and knock over a city bus and form a human ant hill to scale a giant wall.

Agreed with ZombieBrew... Watching that trailer, you can easily pick out several details that drastically diverge from the book this movie is supposedly inspired by. The book was amazing. The movie? I pretty much plan to avoid it, because I'm pretty sure I'll sit there nitpicking. If the studio wanted to latch onto the current zombie trend and make their own movie about a worldwide zombie apocalypse, they should have gone ahead and done so without spending whoever knows how much licensing the World War Z name from Brooks. All they're likely to do with that is tick off a bunch of folks who really dug the original material.

I don't read a whole lot, so I probably just don't understand, but why do movies have to be exactly like the book they are based on? Why can't they just be subjective takes on the book? I just don't understand why people can't appreciate a great movie because it wasn't 100% spot on with the book. Just my $.02

I'll wait for this to come out on Netflix. I really dislike the CGI "Zombie Wave".
