Zombies have been a serious part of the cinematic landscape for nearly half a century, but they're only now really hitting the big time.
World War Z
Just the other day, we heard Steven Spielberg and George Lucas discuss an upcoming radical shift in the way movie theaters operate and today, we have what may be our first glimpse at this crazy future. In conjunction with next week's release of 'World War Z,' Paramount has introduced the concept of a "Mega Ticket." Here's how it works: you pay $50 to see the new Brad Pitt zombie blockbuster and you get a whole bunch of goodies, food and souvenirs along with the screening. But, do you think it's worthwhile?
'World War Z' is a film about fighting zombies, and it's funny that the film has screened (and screened well) but is still fighting undead rumors about it being a total disaster. We saw the film and liked it, but it's going to need good word of mouth to be one of the hits this summer. Perhaps it will get better word with this clip, which sets up how Brad Pitt is forced into action to stop the zombie apocalypse.
With 'World War Z' less than a month away, we're going to start seeing a lot more from the zombie epic. (Some lucky people have already seen the actual movie!) Today brings us a handful of new posters from the Brad Pitt-led film just to give you an idea of how big of a disaster this zombie disaster movie will face.
Last night was the first ever public screening of 'World War Z,' this summer's big zombie action-thriller. That would've been enough excitement for the fans in Hoboken, NJ who lined up for hours for their first look at the film. But they got an added surprise: Mr. Brad Pitt.
We were in attendance and after all the fuss, it turns out that 'World War Z' is actually...a pretty good movie.
Yes, the summer blockbuster season is just getting started, but let's not forget another beloved genre: horror. Horror fans have just as much to look forward to as fans of geek properties in 2013. We've got a list of our most anticipated horror films for the rest of the year -- films promising spooks and scares, blood and gore, and all manner of things that get under our skin
