Those all have kind of a zombie motiff though.
The one that I'm really looking forward to is The Road, based upon the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same. Probably the hardest-hitting SHTF novel I've ever read. It's supposed to be out in November of this year:
I have yet to see I Am, so I have to reserve judgement on that one. Will Smith went through a phase there where he really turned me off with his full of himself attitude, so I refuse to give his movies any of my money when they are at the theater. PPV for $3.99 makes me feel better than contributing to him having a high box office total. I read LaMoE though and really enjoyed the book, so I am hoping it stays true.
I love zombie pics because it seems like the zombie movies are more geared towards SHTF. I mean, everything is broken down, there is no more commerce, no services ( food, medical, etc. ) no social structure, no nada - it's just you against them.
I have heard good things about The Road, but have yet to read it. I take it from your post that you would recommend it?
