    Am I the only person who just doesnt like action / shooty / brad pitt type movies. I mean im gona be honest so dont shoot me but Die Hard fucking sucked, so did Borne. I cant sit there and watch the same crappy plot being reused over and over again it bores the crap out of me, but this trailer is just like, what? Why do the zombies form waves of zombies and build pillars with themselves. Assuming they even are zombies, I couldnt make out shit from that trailer.

    Meh. I'll keep an open mind until I see more trailers, but right now it's not doin it for me. I guess my expectations were too high.

    I was hoping it would be good but after seeing CGI zombies I'm rather dissappointed, but I still see it having potential.

    Oh nice, an actual bloodthirsty horde of zombies. At least it's getting a few points right, will be checking this out for sure.

    Wowsers, that looks bad. It's not even like WWZ. It's just a generic zombie movie with a popular title to attract an audience. They couldn't even give it an attractive trailer.

    Lame. The book was excellent. The interview format of the book would have lent itself to the big screen so well, too.

    Why even use the same name? It's literally in no way related to Max Brooks's novel except for the involvement of zombies.

    A zombie movie centred around movies? You can't be serious. The book was amazing but a movie needs to be different.

    No, they could have done it like a part documentary, District 9 was an excellent example of how to do this.

    If they were going to follow one story line it should've been Todd Wainio, hell they could have even gotten Mark Hamill to play him, the guy fucking rocked the audio book version of that character.

    I'll keep an open mind and I'm sure I'll see it regardless, but man... watching the trailer was kinda a kick in the nuts.

    What's with Zack sprinting and climbing all over the place.

    Can they really portray Yonkers well with fast sprinting zombies?

    Mixed feelings about this. Will probably see it anyways.

    What. the. deuce? Didn't even look like a horde of zombies. Looked like all the zombies are just mangled together and sliding around like a freaking snake. Damn zombies in the book were classic walkers, not these fast ones.

    Not keen for this at all.
    Sick of Zombie films, let alone bad look ones.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    I had hopes for it, but it looks like they ruined it, may as well not used the WWZ license and name.

    For it to have been done right it should have been picked up by HBO and made into a series of about 10-15 hour long eps each telling a story progressing along the line of the book with the last few eps going back to the characters for closure.
