Movie trailers nowadays should come with a spoiler warning, they reveal way too much.

$8!?!?????? Movies in my hood are $12-15 you lucky bastard. That being said, I'll spend $12-15 on this movie. I watch every almost every single zombie movie, hoping it will be the coolest movie ever. So far, the winners are 28 Days Later and Zombieland.

Even Brad Pitt is on a zombie movie. They are playing the zombie thing way to much. Is SciFi/Cowboys/War movies spamming all over again.

I loved the book, and this movie just doesn't seem to get at the heart of the book at all. It may even wind up being decent, although I have my doubts, but it's so far from what I was hoping for when I heard they were making a movie out of the book, that I just can't see myself being happy with it.

And for what it's worth, I have no idea how they could have made that book into a viable movie. It's all over the place. I said this the last time a thread popped up for the first trailer, but I think this book would've been better served by an episodic TV series with various directors, and enough money thrown at it to jump locations. The only people who probably could've pulled it off was HBO, and I'd guess it'd been more expensive than Game of Thrones even.

I suppose. But it really would have been all over the place even by those standards.

The way the book is set up is that it's after the Zombie Appocalypse, and there's a reporter travelling the world, interviewing survivors as humanity is rebuilding the world, and he's getting the stories of these survivors. That's why it's subtitle is "An Oral History".

So you'll get an entire chapter told in past tense about a family that survived by walking north where the Zombies would freeze. Or a fighter pilot that had to bail out over a swamp. Or military commander who led an attempt at an ambush in Yonkers. Or an Indian guy who was part of a plan to lead a herd up a mountain then blow out the pathway. Or a doctor doing a heart transplant. Or a group of Japanese soldiers that escaped on their nuclear submarine.
None of the chapters (or very few at least) are interconnected at all, unlike Crash where the various characters cross paths. And the chapters vary in tone and content. I listed some of the bigger chapters up there. But sometimes the smaller scale stories are even more interesting.

Truthfully the movie looks like it's probably based on the book in title only, although it is in NY, so you may see the Battle of Yonkers portrayed as a finale or something. I'd honestly probably be more interested in the movie if it were just released as a new intellectual property.

I really endorse the book highly. It's a great and easy read. And because the chapters are so loosely connected at best, you can pick it up and put it down at will. I'd actually like to read it again, which I almost never do.

"Daddy what's Martial Law"

"Marshall Law is a great Tekken character, often chosen by those new to the game but with great speed and decent power, and a fairly deep moves list with a couple stance variations he can be a pro character too. Great especially to balance a specialized type character like King in Tag Tournament."
