I saw the ad twice this weekend and it cements my lack of interest in this film. The whole apocalypse genre in general is really tired. The other one coming out with Will Smith and his son also looks really tired and been there done that. And we just had Oblivion with Tom Cruise, there is not really that much of an audience for such downer material. Hollywood gets stuck in these trends that are just awful, are we out of the teen vampire / witch angsty thing yet? Geez.


I love zombie movies and apocalypse movies but the fact that Brad Pitt is starring in it and it looks like it's barfed under in CGI, I can't get excited for this. The shots they show of the zombies going Matrix are uninspired and I predict it will be as "phony" as "I am Legend", which I also didn't buy for a second and was overdramatic and void of originality. I wish they'd do another 28 days/weeks later installment, those movies got it right.

As for the Beltrami score, I did enjoy his latest Die Hard, if it's half as exciting I'll be wanting to pick it up.

Yeah, THE WALKING DEAD is currently getting it SO right on TV at the moment, why bother with cinema step-downs?

In the last two days this movie premiered in London and Berlin. I googled the terms: " World War Z Movie Reviews." I found a lot of hits. There are a few slams because the movie didn't follow the book. However, most of the reviews have been positive, saying that it is a relentless thrill ride and well-done.

Overall, good reviews. Unfortunately, no reviewer has mentioned the music which sadly isn't unusual.

All those CGI zombies swarming looks pretty ludicrous to YOR.

Amen, YOR.

How did no one at Paramount or on the crew of this film look at that shot of the CGI zombies crawling over each other like ants and think, 'this looks mother-f'ing stupid'?!

The ant-comparison was intended.

Right on. The filmmakers decided to portray the zombie swarm like an insect swarm; spread of the zombie plague like basic nature animal and insect tendencies and behavior, which I personally think is totally awesome and original. Scarier too -- a more relentless and dangerous zombie mob mentality. Diggin' it.

I have. Would characterize it as dark, raw, brutal, tense. About what you might expect for a film like this. Of course, as usual with Beltrami, he is able to inject some epic, soaring beauty and/or scope whenever he can, utilizing full orchestra...but also countering it with some relentless pulsing rhythms elsewhere and typical creative electronics.

It's a great score but nowhere near as phenomenal as Snowpiercer! If I had to recommend one over the other I would recommend Snowpiercer -- but of course there is always room for two epic Beltrami scores thus I would recommend both! smile

Cool. Thanks for the info! Who is releasing Snowpiercer? I looked on Amazon, and there isn't anything for it just yet.

No one so far. Hoping someone will! One of the best of Marco's career, and that is saying a LOT!

Most likely it might be released in Korea or France first, since these are probably the territories the movies opens in first before getting released somewhere else. Although first trailers still mention summer 2013 release dates, there are just no exact dates announced for any major countries... IMDB currently only lists late August release in one smaller country... (can't remember which one... could be Belgium or something in that region).

When the movie gets wider release, hopefully it will get also score release, but since there is nothing really confirmed on that front, no wonder the OST hasn't been announced yet, but I am getting a bit worried nothing is at least mentioned as being in the negotiations so far...

but that's for another topic smile



ok... here is the list of release dates according to IMDB:

South Korea 1 August 2013
Denmark 29 August 2013
Russia October 2013
France 30 October 2013

I'm sorry, but it still looks stupid and years from now, I'm gonna die with that opinion in my mouth.

---And what that has to do with Beltrami's score, I'll never know.

I'm gonna give this flick the benefit of the doubt and reserve my opinion until I've actually seen it.
The trailers actually look pretty sweet and I really enjoyed his last Die Hard score.

WWZ samples!!!
http://www.amazon.co.uk/World-War-Music-Motion-Picture/dp/B00D5RB3VA/ref=sr_shvl_album_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371447798&sr=301-1

Sounds fucking awesome to me! Can't wait to hear the whole thing. Any ideas how much music was actually recorded and is missing from the album?

This film was barely on my radar, and not the sort of thing that interests me. But I saw that trailer and I have to say, I thought the insecty zombies were pretty damn scary. Not stupid to me.

You're welcome to find it stupid-looking, of course. But don't assume that's the only possible reaction.

The samples intrigue me - although, due to the filmĀ“s structure, Beltrami has to deliver mostly music for action sequences with mostly familiar elements. Still, sounds like a good score.

The score is available to buy (in the UK anyway) on the Google Play Store.
