Miniseries on HBO. THAT would be the shit.

Definitely, no problem there. But zombies now acquiring superhuman jumping ability is just silly.

And they were slow in the book, how is this an adaptation in anything other than name if they're ignoring that simple fact?

The trailer doesn't actually look terrible but the effects with the zombies is really odd

I thought the book was horrible. Very cheesy, very poorly written, and ludicrous in how everyone dealt with the zombies. That said, I thought the idea was great, and the book itself just poorly executed. A film or mini-series based on that premise would be awesome. This movie just looks like any other.

Best thing I've read all day.

I loved the book and am saddened to see it end up like this.

FAwck! I was really looking forward to watching this movie. I thought they would shoot it like the book , which I thought was awesome. Hollywood really needs to do their Zombie homework. 28 days later is the only movie so far that could get away with fast moving zombies. The zombies were like ants mowing things down. Zombies aren't like that or at least , I hope not. If so, I am fucked with the zombie weapons I have been stock piling for the zombie apocalypse.

^ if zombies run and pile on each other like that, we're all doomed.

It worked in 28 Days Later since they weren't technically zombies. They were infected with a virus and were still alive. No headshot to kill, not dead = no zombie.

This doesn't even remotely look like World War Z.

I just started reading this book the other day. Im about 1/4 of the way through and I really like it so far. The different world perspectives is really interesting and makes the whole idea quite believable.

world war z is a great book. Read The Zombie Survival Guide while you're at it.

just started reading this. are they going to be doing each perspective individually?

there's multiple locations, and as the book progresses, character development does for each location too.

One of my professors made this a required reading freshman year in college.The movie looks disappointing though, they'll probably butcher the plot, CGI zombie's don't bother me though. I'll still prolly watch it anyway.

That gives me a sad. My required reading freshman year included The Iliad, The Nichomachean Ethics, the Republic, and The Confessions of Saint Augustine.
