World War Z Superbowl Commercial

Herner Klenthur

The trailer for World War Z did not do much for me and now we have the World War Z Superbowl commercial and frankly… I am not sure it works. I am a huge fan of Brad Pitt and think he has done some great films and World War Z is also some fantastic source material. The problem here is that the trailer is just one big mess of ant like CGI zombies.

Watch the superbowl commercial and tell me what you think the comments.

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.  Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.”

World War Z is said to hit theatres on December 21, 2012.

        To be honest, I doubt this will be anything like the book, the movie MIGHT be worth seeing because it has zombies on an epic scale, but it’s a “might” and to think it might have been me chasing down Brad Pitt across George Square in Glasgow but for a late casting call lol

        Yeah, I hope the final release makes the CGI look better. It looks very poor so far.
        But damn, I cannot wait to see this movie!
        In the book they’re more the walker type… so I guess we’ll see how it works out…

        This movie just keeps looking worse and worse with each trailer that gets posted. I was initially excited for this, having read the book and all, but damn, these zombies are crap.

        Although I’m not a an of CGI at all, I have to say that a movie of this scale leaves no other choice… now as far as the CGI looking like crap, I’m sure they will tweak it before release. If not, they will be forever mocked on horror forums until the end of time.
        There is no excuse for big budget movies to have SyFy issued CGI at this point. I would rather them pull back the scale a bit and have super convincing zombies.

        Maybe you guys have seen more footage than me, but I think it’s hard to say anything at all about the movie from this. It doesn’t look great, but it doesn’t look bad either. It looks like it could be literally anything, because this trailer is so insubstantial.

        I think people are too ready to hate this just because it’s a big budget zombie movie. I’d be worried too if Damen “franchise killer” Lindelof had done the third act rewrite, but since he failed to complete it and Drew Goddard was brought in in his stead, I’m actually looking forward to this a bit. Drew Goddard proved his horror cred with Cabin in the Woods, but he proved himself as a writer long before on projects like ALIAS, Lost, Buffy, and Angel. If nothing else, he should help ensure a satisfying final act for the film.

          the trailer showed all I needed. Superbowl commercial was just icing.
