A couple of big new zombie trailers came out this week. First, we have the World War Z trailer, and it appears to make zombie fanboy heads explode all over the place.

OK, let’s start with the obvious. Fast zombies. Globetrotting family man, Brad Pitt. A pyramid of scrambling zombies. This is clearly going to be only loosely based on Max Brooks’ bestseller. Sacrilege, I know. But, honestly I don’t really think that the book would translate well to film. I have no problem with the producers taking liberty with the material. While what we end up with may not be World War Z the book, it may be something pretty entertaining.

The other new trailer is for the zombie romance, Warm Bodies:

This one looks pretty faithful to the book. Whether or not you think that’s a good thing is up to you. I’m encouraged by the presence of John Malkovich and Rob Corddry (although they’ve both been attached to some garbage in their times). This looks like it might be decent, though the crowd in the theater might be a little different.
