Original Ending for World War Z Revealed and Yes... It Did Kind of SuckSometimes reshoots are for the better. That is definitely the case with World War Z. Movies.com has provided a complete breakdown of the film’s original ending, and to say it’s different is a bit of an understatement.

Apparently the pivotal point where the reshoots took over was the plane scene. In the original film:

  • The plane did not crash as it does in the theatrical version.
  • Gerry (Pitt) and his Israeli comrade, Segen, land in Moscow, where his phone (the link to his wife, Karin, and family) was taken away and he was forced to join the Russian Army against the zombies.
  • Months pass, and Gerry is now a zombie-killing machine.
  • Gerry’s unit is tasked with clearing subway tunnels of zombie hordes. This is the first time we see the Lobo, a perfected zombie-killing tool that’s sort of a shovel/battle axe that would have been one of the few things from the book to make it into the movie.
  • Gerry discovers that the cold weather is the best defense against the zombies as they freeze and are easier to kill.
  • Gerry comes across the Russian who stole his phone molesting Segen.
  • Gerry gets Segen and his phone back.
  • Gerry calls his wife, Karin, and he learns that she sells her body to keep their children safe.
  • Gerry also learns that his family is living in the Everglades, where the dead will never freeze.
  • Gerry then finds out that Matthew Fox’s character is housing Gerry’s wife and Fox tells him to stay away.
  • Gerry makes his way back to the United States as a means to rescue his family.
  • Gerry and his mates land on the Oregon coast to begin a fight across the States to make it to the Everglades, where Karin and their kids are being kept.
  • Roll credits.

    That’s it. No resolution. No nothing really. There are some more details here and there that you can read by clicking the link below, but in a nutshell that’s what was there. What do YOU think? Is the new ending better, or would you have preferred the older one?

    Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own

    Published

    on

    Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

    Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

    For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

    I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

    That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

    Published

    on

    Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

    So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

    Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

    Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26th, 2017.

    Synopsis:
    Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

    Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
