The trailer for World War Z, due to be released in June, reveals an Aliens/Hardboiled twist on the classic zombie genre. Brad Pitt’s not just a lone hero fighting off swarms of the undead, he’s a family man, he’s got kids to feed and prevent being fed on. There’s sirens and explosions and screaming and running and zombies and all the while Brad’s doing his marital duties and taking care of the wife and kids. Touching, yes? We think so. So we thought we’d compile a list of the top ten touching zombie moments.
Up until now, decaying corpses haven’t had the same glamour as Dracula and his ilk (frankly, whoever’s been in charge of zombie PR has been doing a rotten job), but this could be set to change as Warm Bodies sets out to do for zombies what the T-word did for vampires – make loads of cash from teenage girls.
Hoult and Shannon are to star in The Young Ones, a futuristic thriller directed by Gwyneth Paltrow’s brother, Jake.
After the desolate wasteland of 2010 (The Crazies, and…?), 2011 has actually been a half decent year for horror movies: Kill List, Black Swan, Stake Land, Troll Hunter, Julia’s Eyes, Attack the Block (sort of), the first half of Insidious, the second half of Scream 4… But if early whisperings are to be believed, 2012 is going to be much better. LIST TIME.
