No Zombies Appear in the Official 'World War Z' Trailer
The "World War Z" official trailer hit the Internet this week and I have to say, I'm not really impressed by it.
The movie looks like a generic action film, complete with helicopter and airplane crash sequences. But what is more telling about the film is not what is in the trailer, but what is not, and I could not help but notice that not a single zombie appears in the trailer. Not one.
The "World War Z " trailer, a movie about the zombie apocalypse, has no close ups of zombies, just the horrible far-away shots of a literal sea of zombies washing up against a wall and forming a pyramid with their bodies.
Why aren't there any shots of the zombies attacking people? Heck, even "Warm Bodies," the zombie romance comedy, or rom-com, had shots of zombie attacks. So why not WWZ?
It makes me think the worst for "World War Z." Why not show a zombie, it's what people are looking for, it's a zombie movie for crying out loud!
But don't take my word for it, you can watch it for yourself below.
