    The Fox website suggests "wear a red shirt and see what happens..." at any of the preview screenings around the country.

    Does anyone know what happens? Free stuff?

    Just curious.

    Oh my god. This movie was incredible.

    I'm still going over the parts I loved the best. There was just so much to like. Credible zombies who are completely threatening. Protagonists I actually like and care about their survival. Good actors. Great score and song selection.

    I need to see this when it reaches wide release, but this looks to be joining the ranks of Night of and Dawn of.

    Now that I've gone back to read the thread, I'd have to say that I really liked the third act. In many ways, I felt like it built off of Weinberg, you fucker. I had seen a moving vehicle in the theater and so I was looking for that. [​IMG]

    Man, am I ever pumped to see this film again. I'm anticipating viewing this from a higher level perspective now that I've seen it.

    I wonder how it will find an audience when its sandwiched between Hulk and Charlie's Angels 2. I mean, both of them are likely vying for the same male audience, so how many are going to remember that little horror movie that was "scary as hell"?

    Just a little positive word:

    Rotten Tomatoes has a huge 87% positive on this one (91% for the Cream of the Crop). I'd call that well received. With some luck, it will find the success that it(opinion) deserves.

    Just a couple of questions for those who saw the movie.
    The jet that sees (& supposedly rescues) them. Is it a British plane?
    Another question one would assume is that with the quick infection rate and Britain being an island. The infection could be contained there. Unless, they walk through the chunnel. [​IMG]

    We discussed it in this thread.

    Perhaps it should be merged with this one?

    Yeah, I remember thinking that - but Fox chose a great weekend for the release. Plus they've been advertising it VERY well.

    I'd love to be proven wrong and see this movie make $30 million + this weekend!

    Absolutely, Matt. I have a small crew of friends who have been hearing me swoon over the flick since February. So now they're all hyped to see it.

    We'll probably all go see it Sunday afternoon.

    I personally loved this film. Although I question why every review I read is so against the final act? I did love however in Eberts review, when he stated that it would have been awesome if the plane came back and fired upon them.

    I just saw this movie and really liked it as well. One thing that hasn't been mentioned that I think deserves it is the cinematography; several times I was amazed by the beauty of the shots.
