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
