Yep, prepare to be annoyed. Before we get to that, though, you may be wondering why we're covering the Will Smith flick I Am Legend years after its release. Believe me we're just as shocked. Still, something really cool has surfaced online that should not be ignored.
I Am Legend is probably one of the biggest continuing disappointments in Hollywood history; not a single adaptation has come close to capturing the feeling of the Richard Matheson novel it was based on. Now Hollywood’s taking it one step further and prequelizing it, just to make sure moviegoers are never able to take this post-apocalyptic world too seriously.

The second trailer for Will Smith's "last man on Earth" film I Am Legend was leaked earlier today to Worst Previews, but Warner Bros. announced that it was actually the international trailer and requested they remove it.
All right, I take back my trepidations about I Am Legend, at least temporarily. The trailer was just posted over on Apple and yes, it is badass. No more words. Click here to see the first I Am Legend trailer! - Johnny Butane Got news? Click here to submit it!
Though something tells me this is going to be one of those films historians point to as to how not to make a holiday blockbuster, Francis Lawrence’s I Am Legend is still a movie I can't help but look forward to.
