Halo 4 and Call of Duty Black Ops 2 released in the last 7 days. Of course I had to go to both midnight launches, now I am exhausted and my wrist tendonitis is killing me. Going to have to ice my wrist when I get done talking about these cool new trailers.
Finally a trailer for World War Z, starring Brad Pitt. This is an adaptation of a highly popular Max Brooks novel. However, initial test audience were not fans of the first cut of the film. Screen writer Damon Lindelof (Prometheus and Cowboys and Aliens) was brought in to fix the mess and additional scenes were shot. I have never been a Lindleof fan and these super fast CGI zombies look a bit goofy in the trailer. I am a big zombie fan so I hope they managed to make this film watchable. Looks like I will find out for sure on June 21st next year.
Citadel, A supernatural thriller about a father trying to protect his daughter from a gang of crazed children who killed his wife. What could be worse than trying to protect a crying infant in a horror film? This film stars Aneurin Barnard who looks a lot like Frodo (Elijah Wood) and it’s out in limited release right now.
Warm Bodies, a zombie romantic comedy from writer/director Jonathan Levine, (50/50, The Wackness). At first I was scared that this film was going to be some sort of zombie twilight and I was horrified. After watching the trailer and seeing who was writing and directing I feel much more inclined to give this film a shot when it hits theaters on February 1st, just in time for Valentines day.
Born of Hope is not actually a new film and it’s not a trailer. You can actually watch the full film on YouTube if you want. This film is a LOTR prequel that was Directed by Kate Madison. I have not watched the entire film yet but I figured it might satiate my Hobbit fix until we get to check out the Shire on Dec 14th.
So what is your take on this weeks collection of trailers? Is World War Z going to be any good or did all the reported, script and production problems doom this film?
