Movie Preview: I Am Legend

Back when the teaser trailer came out for I Am Legend, it looked like a mysterious, creepy sci-fi thriller starring Will Smith, but aside from some eerie images of a deserted New York City, there wasn't a whole lot in the teaser to get me super stoked about it. Now, however, there's a full trailer providing more details on the story and more scary visuals. Interestingly, it looks like Smith has to carry much of this film on his own, acting-wise, and I'm very curious to find out how he does with that.

Opening December 14, I Am Legend follows scientist Robert Neville who is somehow immune to a deadly virus that has wiped out NYC's population. According to the Warner Bros. description, "Mutant victims of the plague — The Infected — lurk in the shadows... watching Neville's every move... waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood."

I can't wait to see this movie — and not just because I might get to see a full scene from The Dark Knight at the screening of I Am Legend. If you're anxious as well, you can check out the trailer if you

The book was amazing, and if they follow it the movie shall be as well. Its not a "plague" movie really, more like a different take on vampires. Think about being the only person left on earth, that hasnt been affected by vampirism. you can walk around during the day, but at night your old frikkin neighbors are calling out your name!

i loved the book so I am definitely gonna check this one out. I'm still having a hard time getting past the idea of Will Smith in the lead because in the book it seemed like the character was an older white guy...like someone in his 50s or something. But Will Smith has gotten better as an actor (i.e. Pursuit of Happyness) so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I just can't suspend my disbelief if Will Smith is playing the lead. Sorry.

U kno .. alot of ppl are giving Will Smith a hard time .. of course he was the Fresh Prince.. and of course he comes out with "kid-friendly family rap" lol but when it comes to acting .. i think he's underestimated.. i saw him in Ali.. and he was goooood! and then i saw Pursuit of Happyness... and i was just struck .. it was like wow .. Will Smith you're a wonderful actor.. stop making cds! lol I will be seeing this.. of course.

Looking forward to seeing this! Even though he comes off kinda corny most of the time, I think he can pull this off pretty well. When I first saw pictures of this I thought it was going to be a corny superhero kind of flick, glad to see that's not the case!

Pad, I thought of Omega Man too. I think Will can carry it, sounds interesting.

It's based on the novella "I Am Legend" written in 1954 by Richard Matheson (he also wrote "What Dreams May Come" and "A Stir of Echos"). It's not a ripoff of "Resident Evil" or anything. It has been done as "Omega Man" and I think one other time as "The Last Man on Earth". The original material takes place in Los Angeles and is one of the most amazing reads around.

i read somewhere that this is a remake of/based on the same material as omega man. it looks interesting. my older brother and i used to dream about being survivors of a vampire/zombie attack (we'd have weapons, of course). lol. close enough.

The plot sounds oddly familiar. Like a more blockbuster version of 28 Days Later with Cillian Murphy. Hmmm...Not sure what my feelings are on this just yet.
