    so i am legend is a remake of Omega Man staring C. Heston where he's attacked by vampires. But I've been hearing that in I Am Legend they are zombies. Is this a rumor or did someone have any info on this?

    In the book I Am Legend, it is vampires, caused by some sort of virus or something, IIRC.
    But yeah, it is supposed to be Vampires, the trailers for the movie make it look like some sort of mix of Zombies/Vampires, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, with such a great premise.

    .

    Shame on you for not researching that. And they are still vampires, like in the original book.

    does the dog live or no? i hate it when they kill the poor dog off, id rather the person die than the dog but every damn movie kills off the faithful dog, does this one follow that same old formula and kills off the dog?

    In the book he comes across a dog and tries to re-tame it...


    Highlight below for spoilers in the novel:










    He spends weeks trying to get the dog to trust him and, when he finally manages to win the dog over, it has been infected... Destroying all hope and love in him. :hsd:

    that's just as bad as saying that it's a reimaging.

    i can see the zombie/vampire thing working. In the book they are called vampires but they behave exactly like zombies and are retarded.

    if they behaved exactly like zombies and were retarded, how were they able to manipulate him? how were they able to capture him? how did they have the knowledge to walk in sunlight? :ugh:

    I think The Dark Knight trailer attached to I Am Legend will be better than I Am Legend itself.

    I thought Heath Ledger would be a horrible Joker, but he seems pretty awesome.

    Well, when I thought about it, I hadn't any reason not to trust Nolan.

    they seemed very zombie-ish in alot of ways in the movie. very much like the "rage" virus from 28 days/weeks later. they bled from their eyes and mouths (slightly), exhibited signs of extreme aggression continuously, but they also showed a bit of intelligence at times, other times they just seemed like a band of retards.

    More spoilers to confirm your point (highlight below):

    If they behaved like your average zombie:

    How did the "living" vampires (as opposed to undead vampires) create the pills which replaced their bloodlust? How did the living vampires form a new society to purge the undead vamps and capture Neville... And how did they know to send an attractive female to spy on him too?


    Also, I know Will Smith received a lot of hate for taking this role, but does he do it justice? I like him and think as long as he is the "Ali"/"The Pursuit of Happyness" Will Smith and not the "aww Hell no!" Will, he'll do a great job.:wiggle:
