Who's Seen The First 28 Minutes Of 28 WEEKS LATER?!

Published at: March 22, 2007, 7:20 a.m. CST by Moriarty

Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here. Fox Atomic must be liking what they see as this one comes together. One thing I've noticed about them is that when they think something's working, they show it. A lot. To anyone who wants to look. As poker players go, they're pretty easy to read. So if they're showing the first 28 minutes of this (oh, that's clever) to people, much the same way they released the first ten minutes to the internet of the first film, then they must think they've got the goods. So... do they?

Our man Andrew was on hand when Fox Atomic showed off the first 28 minutes of 28 Weeks Later and it's looking DAMN good! Check it out! -Johnny Butane News Editor Co- Founder Dread Central

    ironically, the first 28 minutes of '28 days later' ...

    by newc0253

    was the best part of that film: those dv shots of an abandoned london. after that, it slowly went downhill towards what was ultimately a shitty conclusion. i still look forward to the sequel, though. despite the first film being overrated, it's still a concept with lots of potential.

    We ASSURE you it's good

    Nothing to see here, move along, remeber to buy your ticket.

  • March 22, 2007, 7:54 a.m. CST

    OK here's how this could work -

    by FluffyUnbound

    The reviewer in the link piece says that London has been fortified into safe zones and that's where all hell breaks loose. If they turn this into a zombie movie that riffs on the modern "surveillance state", and half the danger is that the fortress these people are in is also a cage that prevents their escape, then it might be a decent sequel.

    The first movie Kicked Ass

    by Lord Trebuchet

    because it was a fresh, original take on the zombie genre. This one, not so much.

  • March 22, 2007, 9:42 a.m. CST

    So when do they start making

    by MoviePirate

    28 Months Later or 28 Years Later

  • March 22, 2007, 9:47 a.m. CST

    Most. Unnecessary. Sequel. Ever

    that was land of the dead...

  • March 22, 2007, 11:27 a.m. CST

    Yeah, the ending to the first one...

    by ScarranHalfBreed

    ...was kind of a wet, limp-wristed slap with a sponge. Hopefully, this 'un will have a better ending, giving the whole story a great climax. Until 28 Months Later, obviously.

  • March 22, 2007, 11:32 a.m. CST

    Who'd have thought...

    by TORTURE PWN

    that,with all of the remake shit,that I'd be awaiting a fucking SEQUEL for a breath of fresh air.Hollywood-whittling away at our expectations...one movie at a time.

  • March 22, 2007, 12:18 p.m. CST

    sounds great!

    by Spice-Orange

    thats the cool think about zombie movies... you have the action and gore and scary stuff, but you also have the politics and "humanity" angle that comes into play and really makes the characters and viewer think about stuffs. Original Day of the Dead had some really good ideas in it.

  • March 22, 2007, 12:35 p.m. CST

    crap

    by AvengingFist

    didnt like the first movie. zombie movies just need to end. its getting old.

  • March 22, 2007, 12:35 p.m. CST

    Love the original and I'm looking forward to the sequel

    by rbatty024

    With some trepidation of course. I would be more excited if Danny Boyle returned to direct, because then you would know that at least one Brian Eno song would be featured on the soundtrack.

  • March 22, 2007, 12:43 p.m. CST

    Sequels? That's for old folks!

    by Spandau Belly

    Seriously, you guys must be in some retirement home or something. I don't know anybody under 50 who goes to sequels.<br><br>My friends and I all go to see prequels and remakes only. But it's hard to get organized since we can only communicate through texting and Facebook. I heard there used to be this thing called conversation and it happened in person or over the telephone. Maybe one of you old timers can teach me how to do that. It sounds like a great way to communicate, I just don't know how I'll express my mood without smiley icons.

  • March 22, 2007, 1:19 p.m. CST

    i agree Kurzinski Valentine

    by council estate scumbag

    the idea and premise was brilliant, but once they introduced that army shit the film fell apart for me. this coulda been so good. the idea of a whole country closing down is just mind blowing, mate. BUT it fucked up when the army shit came in, as i said earlier, AND the whole REASON for the "rage" was fucking weak. i mean seriously fucking weak. and dats what drives the whole film! WTF! these guys should've thought that element through a bit better if dats the thing dats gonna hold the film together. now if thats what happened on the first film, how in the fuck of my mama's hairy pussy is this 28 years later or whatever its called gonna be any good. they struggled on the first one so this is gonna be cat shit.

  • March 22, 2007, 2:16 p.m. CST

    rbatty024. are you serious?

    by council estate scumbag

    first one had great ideas but was flawed. now ur looking forward to this steaming pile of shit. this is a major fucking flawed production. shit! how can the public be so blind? no wonder film producers patronize us and force feed us 'shit on a plane' and 'shrek 15; donkey fucks the wolf by accident' and 'adam sandler is the 4 foot 2 talking turkey'. the latter is probably a real film. hey universal shitctures! dont sue me, mate! all is lost. wake me up when human mankind inteliigence returns.

  • March 22, 2007, 2:20 p.m. CST

    oh the wit, BannedOnTheRun

    by council estate scumbag

    thats a great twist, fella. fucking hell. hollywood is so fucking shit its infecting the rest of america. switch the bloody BBC on for thatchters' fucking dried up ovaries sake and learn some shit and not come out with stupid thats not even witty.

  • March 22, 2007, 3:50 p.m. CST

    I'll go and see it

    by Fuck The Napkin

    But only because they filmed a bit by my house and I want to see the local pub on the big screen.

  • March 22, 2007, 4:07 p.m. CST

    I liked the first one a lot!

    by Zardoz

    I had to put my 28 cents in, so there!

  • March 22, 2007, 5:06 p.m. CST

    Council..

    by rbatty024

    To each their own, but I liked the first one...a lot. It's the thinking man's horror film (I once wrote an essay about the film using essays by Emma Goldman to analyze it). People generally hated the part where the army showed up, but without the army the major philisophical point of the film is lost. Sure, this is a sequel, and that's a bad sign in and of itself, but there are so few horror films that aren't just slasher flicks for the kids. I'm hoping this movie has one-tenth the intelligence of the first movie, which would put it light years beyond most horror films.

  • March 22, 2007, 5:28 p.m. CST

    No Boyle = maybe catch it on netflix

    by 2Utah2

    Bottom line the first movie worked due to the direction and Cillian Murphy was pretty good in the lead role. Without either this sequel just seems to be a quick cash-in and nothing more.

  • March 23, 2007, 12:06 a.m. CST

    crap!

    by hellnback

    this is no zombie movie dammit. get your zombies straight. these are just a bunch of folks that have some kind of virus that makes them go all crazy and shit. zombies are dead, these fucks are not. this movie will suck ass just like the first one.

    by council estate scumbag

    you defend yaself well, son. me personally, i was disapointed in the first as i sed. it couldve been so much more. its like danny boyle handed over the directing duties half way thru to michael bay or uwe bol and said "hey pal, finish this movie up for me".

  • March 23, 2007, 7:56 a.m. CST

    what's up with the posting
