Special- World War Z Trailer review

A new trailer for World War Z with Brad Pitt was just released.

First of all, the good.
I love Brad Pitt. I can't think of many movies he's been in that I don't like. I even like that episode of Growing Pains where he plaid that jerk musician (Don't be down, uh-huh uh-huh).  
Also, World War Z. Come on. Max Brooks took zombies and somehow made everything about them logical. The Zombie Survival Guide, while it should have been boring, is actually really fun to read. His next book, World War Z, focused on the stories of individuals during the zombie outbreak, and tells their stories from around the world. It's well written and manages to stick to the zombie logic Brooks laid out in the Survival Guide.

According to his books, zombies are the dead come back to life. They don't possess any special powers, except for the fact that they have no emotions, no fear, and never tire. They'll keep going until their bodies are simply destroyed. You have to destroy their brains to kill them, just like in most zombie stories. They shamble around because they have very little coordination, making it almost impossible for them to climb stairs, let alone run.

Now, the trailer...

Wow, those are some fast zombies. And they have some kind of stackable skill, much like little magnetic ants. I could see this being just another movie in the zombie franchise. It almost reminds of I Am Legend. The only thing is that it's based off of Max Brooks's book, which LAID OUT HOW ZOMBIES WORK! And they don't seem to be conforming at all to his rules. I know it's just make believe and all for fun, but I think we wanted to see a movie version of World War Z specifically because it followed a set of rules.

Either way, it looks like it might be fun. And again, Brad Pitt will at least bring some quality acting to the film. I'm interested to see how this one turns out.

The Sitter

"Hello. This is Jonah Hill".
"Hi. I'm a studio exec. You were in that movie with all the kids, right?"
"Superbad? Yeah. That's me. But recently I've been in..."
"So do you want to be in another movie with lots of toilet humour?"
"I don't know. I'm trying to get out of that image."
"We'll pay you millions of dollars, and you get to wear the same shirt you wore in all your other movies".
"Um... is there going to be at least one dick joke?"
"Sure, sure. In fact, we'll set someone's crotch on fire."
"Sign me up!"

Where did we come from? Were we created, or just a fluke of the universe? Did we evolve from nothing when a flash of lightning hit some random elements? Or did bald, albino body-builders sacrifice themselves to give us life? We may never know, but Prometheus is going to try to find out.
