I was going to wait til tomorrow to put this up but I just thought "Hey, why NOT?!" So...here I am, typing. Anyhow. World War Z came out on Friday and as you know, it had the BIGGEST budget ever given to a zombie movie! It's budget was about $190 million. Wow! I heard there was a script change and plenty of reshoots. Before this one, Zombieland was the highest grossing zombie movie in theaters with $75.5 million for the whole time it was in theaters.
Whelp! World War Z almost beat it out already and it's only it's FIRST weekend. How awesome is that? So far, it's at $66 million! At this rate, clearly it will earn more than enough.
I'll will post up my review/thoughts on World War Z tomorrow for my Madhouse Monday's!
It wasn't an instant classic for me but it was entertaining and that's all I ask. I'm a simple girl. I guess we all have The Walking Dead to thank for bringing a wider audience to zombies.
