This reminds me of a book I read a few years ago. A man off hiking in the country hurt his leg and recovered in a remote log cabin. When he hiked back down everyone was dead. Almost. Eventually he found other survivors of the plague, and the story follows his life and the lives of his children as they descend from civilized community to half naked hunter gatherers stumbling away into a new and threatening world.
I found this trailer for the new Will Smith movie, “I Am Legend” via Anthony’s blog and it could be rather good. As is my want to do these days I checked Youtube for a trailer and found a fan made film and rehearsal clips from the movie. After watching the following movie, check out the comments. Not too many people are happy Will Smith will be playing the lead role! To be honest I though I was watching Independence Day all over again!
Rehearsal clips seem to be shot by local people in New York, not any “behind the scenes” videos by the production staff. Here are a few: video 1, video2 (Will Smith makes a brief appearance in this one), and this one has it’s good moments.
I’m going to look for the book first.
PS. Want to download the trailer? There are probably plugins to do it, but I found that running
strings on the .mov loader file displayed the actual movie file. ‘Course I’m only going to watch it once or twice so why bother downloading it? Ho hum! Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to do something, just because we can do it! I will say it looks very impressive full screen.
