It'll be rated R. But part of his agreement for doing the film and delivering an R rated theatrical cut was that he could shoot the film as he wanted for a future DVD release. So, there's bound to be gore, but we won't see it fully til the DVD unless they do a limted theatrical release. That would be sweet.

Whoa...excellent trailer. I had my doubts about this film until now. It's definately a must-see for me this year.

Hard to get excited when half the trailer are clips from old movies, and the other half just has a bunch of random flashes. Still, I'll see this nonetheless.

i just hope its not the "Dawn" remake retread. even though i loved the remake, i want something different from this, but i do look forward to it, just hope there is originality and not geared to the more recents..."Dawn" (04), "Shaun". "28 Days Later", etc..

I have to admit,i found Night to be boring and Dawn to be OK at best (haven't seen Day),but the new trailer looks pretty good.I will probably end up checking it out.

The trailer didn't really do much for me, maybe I was expecting too much. I will still go see it (unless reviews are in the crapper) but I am still worried that Romero may make a merely ok or forgettable sequel and cause a stop to the recent stream of cool zombie flicks.

At this point, Romero's Dead movies resemble Lucas' original trilogy in the way they are worshipped by the fans. These same fans are expecting a LOT so can it live up to the expectations?

That just about says it. I know I'll go see it, but I don't expect to enjoy it all that much. I know that there is no way it could resemble Night, Dawn, Day because:

a)Those movies are 20-30 years old
b)I am no longer 12

Hopefully I'll be surprised. I've noticed that many of my favorite movies had real shitty trailers.

I agree that this trailer doedn't look very good but I think that is b/c it's a product of today's shitty mainstream marketing & studios. They have to make it look more like a typical action movie as oppose to classic Romero gory zombie flick.

That said, the movie has zombies & Asia Argento in it. About the only way I can get more excited for this movie is if somehow they could get work Batman into the picture.

You know Night, Dawn, and Day are all very different movies. Not really all that similar, they just all have that Romero touch to it and zombies. I think it is very silly to compare the two series and the fans. Not all the fans worship all the movies, some only like Night, most prefer Dawn, plenty hate on Day, and a few prefer Day.

Also, both sets of fans expect different things from the films. With Lucas the concern is fudging up the story and making it silly and unlike Star Wars. The fans care about the characters, and want them treated properly.

With the Romero the concern is mainly good zombie effects, good characters, and an interesting story with an interesting take on the world. He's much more free to do what he wants, and not stepping on fan expectations. Lets not forget Day was pretty badly received, yet it is Romero's favorite. Plus I think Romero genuinely wants to make a great zombie movie. Lucas seems to (atleast partially) want to make the SW films to just get them done. They really have different reasons for making them.

i cut trailers for a living, making something look "typical" is the antithesis of what we aim to do. the problem usually lies in the films themselves. have you heard the expression, "you can't polish a turd"?

that being said, i am proud to say that i did not cut this trailer. whoever did has no understanding or respect for time-pressure seeing as their "rhythm" was built with cuts, not shots.

That's not the impression I get watching trailers. Every movie seems to be marketed as a clone of an earlier movie (whether it actually is or not). They often even include quotes like "It's Pretty Woman meets Silence of the Lambs!" Very few trailers make any effort to make the movie appear original or unique.

Oh, and another thing: it's not necessary to give away every single plot point and surprise in the trailer! If I were made "Trailer King" tomorrow, my first act would be to forbid the inclusion of any footage past the first 30 minutes or so of the movie. Example:

Cast Away teaser: Perfect
Cast Away trailer: Garbage

most movies ARE clones of an earlier movie. and appear even more so when you have to distill it down to 2 minutes and 30 seconds. in seven years i have never worked on or even seen a trailer that said something like "pretty woman meets silence of the lambs." perhaps you are thinking of critic quotes in tv spots? those are a whole different animal. i can tell you that the trailers that come my way are all approached in a way to reveal what is both familiar and unique about the story and characters -- Sideways and Sin City were ideal pictures to work on. most pictures aren't because they have very few original elements.

Just one example: Anything Else. The trailer for this Woody Allen film was put together in such a way to make it look like a "typical" teen comedy in the vein of the American Pie movies. Allen's name wasn't even mentioned.
