World War Z Movie coming in late 2012

The cover of World War Z
Yet another movie that might come in 2012. This one looked interesting.

Plot Summary: World War Z: Is based on a 2006 post-apocalytic horror novel by Max Brooks. It is a follow-up to his 2003 book The Zombie Survival Guide. Brooks plays the role of an agent of the United Nations who published a report a decade after the Zombie War. The United Nations left out much of his work from the official report, choosing to focus on facts and figures from the war rather than the individual stories that form the bulk of Brooks' novel. The interviews chart a decade-long war against zombies from the view point of many different people of various nationalities.

Post-apocalytic books and movies (with or without zombies) are in high demand these days. This movie is sure to draw big crowds when it's released. As some of you may know, I have a hard time taking zombies seriously. I managed to find a trailer. (I don't know if it is a real one)  At first when I was watching the trailer, I thought "Wow, this is very realistic." Then at about the halfway point, I was more like "and now it's getting silly."

At any rate, my kids love zombies, so they'll be sure to go. I'm not so sure about me. I will wait until the reviews are out.

Okay here is a video. I don't know for sure if it is the official video. Watch the video and decide....

That's a fake trailer. Clips from 28 Days Later and the Will Smith show "I Am Legend".

I thought the book was marvelous. I hope the end up making a movie based on it. In fact I've been stunned at how well written several zombie books have been. Several of the better books I've read in the past 18 months were zombie stories - World War Z was one of them.

Mike, I'm glad it's not the real trailer because I didn't like the last half of it. So that's a good thing.
