I wonder whether Max Brooks is laughing or crying to the bank, at this point?

Nobody knows.

But no matter how 'good' or 'bad' it has to do amazing finacially upon release or it sets a new record in wasted production spending. And there wasn't even a hurricane in the production mix...

Now thats a commitment.

given the bad press, and that he would have options on the income, not a fixed percentage of the expenses, chances are he's laughing outside and crying inside, like a creepy clown.

I doubt it's terrible, but from what it is, the budget should be much much smaller, like $100 million or less

It's not out yet, but from the trailer... It's certainly nothing like the book, thats for shit sure. There is this shot were all the zombies are piling on each other making a sort of zombie wall, i dont know if you can say it's a little ridiculous when you're startin with a zombie movie, but it's a little ridiculous.

They had to call Lindledof to fix the script. The question is not whether or not if it will be terrible but HOW terrible it will be.

I will still have to go and see it and decide for myself if it's good or bad.

John Carter you say?

What ever happened to watching a film before passing judgement?

I don't have the time to do that with every movie. If you look at the track record of the people involved you usually have a pretty good idea what to expect. Lindledof hasn't done anything that I haven't hated and the trailer for the movie shows that it has nothing whatsoever to do with the book aside from sharing the same name.
