There was only one thng in that trailer that had anything to do with the book. The zombies "ramping up" to get over a wall.
Seems a bit of overkill to buy the film rights to a whole book just for one scene.
Whats wrong with it? 1/ Fast zombies. They were not fast in the book, nor should they be in any film. 2/ There was no central character in the book, unless you count the narrator. Thats why everyone loved the book, the whole world veiw of a zombie war, with stories from evey country. 3/ Fast zombies, thats worth mentioning again cause its fuckin stupid.

yea D fast zombies suck! i didnt like that pile up and over in the trailer , maybe the fast ones would work better if they were fresh kills and then as they gotolder , they slowed down to romero speed n-o-t-l-d style. unfortunatley i think this is gonna be way different than the book .. but i m not gonna judge it yet , ., it still might be entertaining... but not the wwz we know and love
Are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?
World War Z novelist says the movie kept his title 'and that's it' Matthew Jackson Mon, 05/13/2013 - 5:39pm
If you're a fan of the novel that Brad Pitt's zombie vehicle is based on, the author has some bad news for you.
During a recent interview at Mansfield University, World War Z author Max Brooks was asked about his novel's adaptation to the big screen, and he said he expects the film will have the same title "and that's it." But Brooks doesn't sound too angry about all the changes the screenwriters may have heaped on his baby. As the son of legendary writer/director/comedian Mel Brooks and Oscar-winning actress Anne Bancroft, he knows how Hollywood works.
"I knew they were going to rewrite it," Brooks said. "I grew up in Hollywood. I knew it was going to go through a million changes."
We haven't seen World War Z yet, so we can't say for sure just how many changes will be made to Brooks' novel. We do know that the film has undergone rather extensive rewrites and reshoots on its way to a release next month, which could have brought it closer to or further away from the source material. As far as we know, Brooks has only seen trailers for the flick, but he noted he was invited to read the script after shooting began, and said no.
"I said: Why would I read this? This is not the movie you're going to make," Brooks said. "You're going to do rewrites and reshoots. That's what happens when you make a giant movie.
"My attitude is if you haven't invited me in to contribute, then fine. Go make the movie you want to make and I'll see it when it comes out."
Brooks said his main concern as the release of the movie looms isn't how he'll feel about it, but how the book's fans will react when they find that some of their favorite moments have been drastically altered or simply removed. His advice: treat the book and the movie as two different things.
"I cannot guarantee that the movie will be the book that they love," Brooks said. "And I'm in no position to tell people to see this movie or not see it. If I'm asked I say: See the movie as a movie and judge it as a movie."
World War Z hits theaters June 21, so we'll all judge for ourselves then. What do you think? How different will the film wind up being
I was reading the other day that its shaping up as the biggest disaster in movie history. Its already the most expensive movie ever made, $400 million, eclipsing the $300million spent on Pirates of the Carribean 3.
So Brad Pitt has alienated all the fans of the book and zombie movies aren't big hits at the best of times.
Someone commented on thst link that it would make a perfect mini series ah-la "Band of Brothers" with each episode a different interveiw from the book. Hopefully with the success of Walking Dead and the finacial trouble this will cause Pitts production company they may re-sell the rights to TV.
