28 Weeks Later

Any one watch the trailer? Well, I was watching it and about 18 seconds in I thought something looked kind of weird. Look at the animated tanks behind the heli. The one in front just glides over the top of one of the tents. Haha

Haha. Hope they fix that for the final movie. Looks like a cool movie though.

Wow, how do they miss that? The CG tanks look good though. Anyone know if this is still shot on miniDV camcorders? I'm pretty sure the first 28 days later was shot partially on the Canon XL1S, which I found kinda cool.

Yes, it was shot with the XL1s, because they (DV cameras) are quicker to set up than film cameras. Closing a road in London isn't something you want to do for very long. The last scenes were shot with 35mm because they weren't short on time.

Actually I believe it was the XL1, not the XL1s. See the following for all the details: http://www.theasc.com/magazine/july03/sub/index.html

Yeah, I'm a bit sad it's not filmed on consumer video, it gave the first movie such a unique feel to it. It seems like the movies are going to be two entirely separate entities though.

From what I've heard though, the original director is producing, and is heavily supervising the movie anyways, always being on set and etc. There is a good article about it on IGN today actually, you can check it out here.

I saw it yesterday - visually brilliant; thematically terrifying as most well executed undead films are! stayed in mind for quite some time afterwards.

The reviews are good. I'll probably go see it within a few days.

Looks like they fixed the shot that was in the trailer. It actually looked much more realistic in the film and I think it may have been a completely different clip.

I thought it was good. It still had that raw sketchy type of filming to it.

So I guess they announced on February that they're making a '28 months later'

Just saw it and I thought it was great. It was shot to look a lot like the original, so there are several spots that look very much like video. It keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. And by the looks of it, there is most likely going to be a sequel if this done does well, although it has a lot of competition up against it with May being the big month for all the summer blockbusters.

I really liked it too. You know, maybe I'm just clueless but I didn't see a lot from the trailer. That part that you're talking about seemed to be missing, although you do actually see the Chinook, and some tanks, that actual 3 second cut I didn't see. Plus, you know when the American sniper is pushing the car in the trailer, and he winks? I was waiting for him to wink and then... well, you know...

And I don't remember the American in charge ever saying that 'bringing families back together' bit that he says in the trailer. Again, maybe I was just too scared to pick it up ;)

Personally I liked it a whole lot more than the first, but unfortantely I read the plot of the first while looking at the canon xl1 info by mistake before I saw it, so that took away a lot of the suspense. My fave movie so far this summer!

i can't say i liked it better than the first. the first had so many, well, "firsts" in it. it was really new to me, everything about it was original, a unique twist on the zombie idea(yes i know they're not technically zombies BUT they act like zombies in the sense that they're constantly trying to bite you) anyways that and the cinematography in the first one i thought was amazing.

this sequel did surprise me though, it still had the same filming style and vibe to it, and it was obvious that the first flick was an idea that was easily expandable and its hard to say whether they should have left it at one movie. i did enjoy this sequel and i rarely enjoy follow up movies. usually the writing is sort of bad and seems thrown together but this one wasn't so bad. like i was saying its an idea that you could really run with and have a lot of fun writing. i hope nothing like this ever happens for real though, heh.


anyways, considering all other flicks playing at the moment, i recommend seeing this one, it's my number one pick for the month(at the moment, i have yet to see inland empire)
