More zombies? Yes, please!

I’ve had my eye on the World War Z movie, though I’ve sadly never read the book (it’s on my to-read list). The trailer looks nothing short of AWESOME. Check it out:

The movie stars Brad Pitt who, like him or not, has proven he’s a good choice for an action flick. I still have wet dreams about his swordfights in Troy, but that’s really neither here nor there. Lost‘s Matthew Fox also graces the cast list, and I always love seeing alums from my favorite show pop up. I’m most excited for the appearance of Mireille Enos, who played the lead role in AMC’s cancelled show The Killing.

If you never saw that show, stop what you are doing and log into Netflix right now (after you’re done reading this article, of course). It is two seasons of epicness, and Enos kicks so much ass as Detective Sarah Linden. In World War Z she plays Brad Pitt’s wife, so I’m not sure how much ass-kicking we’ll get to see her do. Hopefully she’ll at least kill a zombie or two.

Speaking of zombies, I’m happy to see something new from this trailer, rather than the typical slow, shambling zombies of The Walking Dead variety. These zombie mobs look like something out of Katamari, and I, for one, am hoping to see a giant ball of zombies rolling around picking up other zombies.

What do you geeks think about the trailer? Excited? Lukewarm? Sick of Brad Pitt? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Just finally watched the trailer and I’m hyped! I think it looks really good, but knowing what I know about the production of the movie, I’m still a little wary about it. It’s been delayed a shit ton of times for rewrites, which is a huge red flag. I like how the zombie horde moves, but I’m still a little wary of fast zombies. I’m a Romero fundamentalist. Zombies should be slow, they’re decaying sacks of flesh, there’s no way that they’d have the muscles to run. It does look great though, so I’m optimistic.

    Also, yeah…no way one of the weird compound, plural wives from “Big Love” is married to Brad Pitt. Don’t mean to be a troll, but I’m just saying.

  2. I don’t know about this one to be honest. I really don’t dig the whole wave o’ zombies they got going on here, really reminds me of I am Legend. And I know you like her and all, but I think it’s more believable that there is a zombie plague then Mireille Enos is Brad Pitts wife. Maybe I’m totally wrong about this and it’ll be a great picture, but gotta feeling that it will be another summer movie that lasts like 2 weeks in the theatre. Hopefully the studio had a coupon or something to cast Brad Pitt, cause I’m thinking he’s on the more expensive side to headline a summer flick.
