I Am Legend Teaser Trailer


I'm really looking forward to this film. I had heard about it some time ago and I was sold on the concept. Here is a synopsis:
Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable…and manmade. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City…and maybe the world. But he is not alone. He is surrounded by “the Infected”—victims of the plague who have mutated into carnivorous beings who can only exist in the dark and who will devour or infect anyone or anything in their path. For three years, Neville has spent his days scavenging for food and supplies and faithfully sending out radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. All the while, the Infected lurk in the shadows, watching Neville’s every move, waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind’s last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But his blood is also what The Infected hunt, and Neville knows he is outnumbered and quickly running out of time.

Looks really interesting.
It's almost the same plot of a 1964 Vincent Price movie we own called "The Last Man On Earth."
Check out the plot summary from IMDB:
Dr. Robert Morgan (Vincent Price) is the only survivor of a devastating world-wide plague due to a mysterious immunity he acquired to the bacterium while working in Central America years ago. He is all alone now...or so it seems. As night falls, plague victims begin to leave their graves, part of a hellish undead army that''s thirsting for blood...his!

Thats funny Josh... I looked into it a little and it turns out they are so similar because they share the same source material: I Am Legend is a 1954 science fiction novel by Richard Matheson...

Wicked! We're doing all the effects for this, or most of them at least, and this is the most cohesive thing I've read about the whole story and such, lol. Looks like it should a be a pretty good and quality "Will Smith" flick.
