The world gets overrun but mindless zombies and only one exceptionally good looking, military scientist motherfucker can save the planet. This isn’t I Am Legend, it’s World War Z, the movie based on the bestselling book, which I will subsequently refer to as White I Am Legend.
The trailer for White I Am Legend really does a good job of raising the stakes of apocalyptic zombie infestation movies by establishing the entire east coast of the US has been lost. Very scary sight when you think of New York, Boston, Philly, and DC taken over by zombies. Even wilder when you think of zombie dudes all piling in goddamn Fung Wa buses (RIP) and driving all kinds of reckless on the highways and shit. Dudes even got zombies on the airplanes acting like jerks, Brad Pitt wishing he just had some venomous snakes on his plane instead of murderous infected humans.
Speaking of the zombies, why do the hordes look like they were created on an overclocked PS2? What happened to the graphics budget? Original flavor I Am Legend had some janky looking zombies too, but that was damn near ten years ago. Surely, the zombie game has had to evolve to the point where we can at least get some Left 4 Dead 2 zombies in movies. Your boy Brad Pitt deserves better.
White I Am Legend is in theaters June 21st.- raythedestroyer
