Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later is a helluva great little movie. Well, little is a bit of a misnomer. It’s a helluva great big little movie. The scope on it is massive even if the budget isn’t. Cillian Murphy is a fantastic lead and Boyle really shows his fantastic eye for composition and pacing with this flick.
Today’s picture sees Mr. Boyle and Mr. Murphy (thankfully with pants) in an early scene at the hospital. I remember talking with Danny Boyle for Slumdog Millionaire where I brought up the similarities between his film and Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead. I believe Kirkman mentioned that his opening was written before the release of 28 Days Later and it was one of those cosmic idea pool things that just happen to be fished out at the same time. Boyle just laughed it off. At that point I don’t think he had heard of the comic and said that essentially they both just stole from I Am Legend and Day of the Triffids.
