World War Z, let’s discuss. I have my hesitations for several reasons:
1) It concerns me how this fantastic book can be coherently made into a movie. Without giving too much away for those who haven’t read it (and you absolutely should!) the book is a collection of accounts from various people involved in the zombie apocalypse and their versions of how it all started, what went down, the re-build of society, etc. Given the non-linear and the absence of one clear plot line in the book, I’m not sure how it’s going to translate.
2) Film adaptations of books I love are always a risk. Even if I enjoy the movie, I can’t help but remain a purist to the work in its original format.
3) The issues and delays with this movie have been well-documented in the media, blogs and the film industry.
That being said, I am SO pumped to see this movie! While I’m not that big on zombies, I love the book and any apocalyptic movie with that ominous score will grab my attention. The terror! (did I mention I’m a Sci Fi nerd?)
My overseas friends, I know it’s been out for a little over a week, did anyone see it? Also, MUSE playing the opening? Pure thrills.
Unfortunately, I leave for tour two days before the North American premiere (June 21), let’s hope it’s still playing in Europe.
