Amazing Fan-Created World War Z Posters Bring the Zombie Apocalypse to (Un)Life

[View All on One Page]

I’ve been less-than-pleased by the two trailers we’ve seen so far for World War Z. I understand the need to create a main character where there was none in the books (or, rather, where there were several main characters). But does there really have to be a tired old “X is the only hope to save humanity! And he gets separated from his family and has to find them!” plotline? I don’t give a hoot about Brad Pitt‘s character. I want to see the zombie apocalypse!

Ahem. Apologies. What I meant to get at with that mini-rant is that, even if the movie’s awful (which it might not be), fans can always be relied upon to create awesome things related to books they love. Several of those awesome things can be seen behind the cut courtesy of the BLURPPY Artists Project, which invited eight artists to create World War Z posters.

    The book lends itself to a dramatic mockumentary, which wouldn’t really work with a cookie cutter movie plot line. I am sad they went with the safe action-packed route rather than the untested, more cognitive/emotional approach.

    We’ve all seen this movie before. Which is unfortunate, and didn’t have to be true.

    Wow! These are fantastic, a million-trillion times better than the official stuff released so far. Clever too, especially the one with the flags in the background. Talented fans.

    Yep, I was really excited to hear about this movie until I realized they were making another Generic Zombie Movie 2B With Gritty White Dude Who Has To Save Us. Pass. And the book was so awesome, too. :(

    Ugh – I don’t care about pretty blond families in peril. Can we end this trope, already? Or at least mix it up a bit?
