What is it with apocalyptic movies these days, are they all to do with our inner sense the world is falling apart?
Whichever NYC has just been zombie bombed by the cast of World War Z as the film was premiered here.
Brad Pitt, the star of course and the producer, was on the red carpet and Mereille Enos made the rounds of the breakfast and evening TV shows.
The film has had mixed reviews but on balance good ones and we can assume all zombie aficionados will flock.
Actually the movie is part zombie, part disaster, part sci-fi, a mash up that seems to appeal to people proportionately depending on their allegiance to each of these genres.
Think imminent destruction, zombie avalanche, heart in the mouth suspense and unrelieved tension until right at the very end. LIKE action movies.
