Starring- Chris Pine, Piper Perabo, Emily VanCamp, Lou Taylor Pucci and Christopher Meloni.
What's it about- Four kids are driving through the desert on the way to the beach, their faces anything but cheery: this isn't Spring Break. They're trying to outrun the end of the world and each other. Determined to elude the deadly virus, Danny, his brother Brian, his girlfriend Bobby and Danny's school friend Kate speed across the Southwestern U.S. to reach a place of possible safety. Over the course of four days, the group is faced with moral decisions that no human should ever be forced to face. They discover that their greatest enemy is not the microbe attacking humanity, but the darkness within themselves.
The real enemy is clothing, so please remove it, Emily. You just might save humanity if you do.
The Buzz- The trailer looks good really good to me, but the movie has sat on the shelf for a few years now which makes me nervous; movies usually sit because they suck, and studios don't know what to do with them. But... but, but, but... movies like Mandy Lane and Trick r' Treat also sit for years on the shelf with no release, and they are anything but bad. So for now, the trailer looks cool and the rest is wait and see.
"You're sick because god hates you."
Gore Factor- I can't imagine that a movie about a deadly flesh eating virus wouldn't be bloody, especially with the characters turning on each other to ensure their own survival.
Master: it's what's for dinner.
Hottie Factor- Plenty of hotness to go around. I guess the whole deadly virus thing means that they wont kiss though. Sigh.
Our Thoughts- Time will tell, but it looks like a winner to us. A killer virus, high "end of the world" drama, The chick from Coyote Ugly, Captain Kirk, Amy from Everwood, and Stabler from Law & Order: SVU... how can it go wrong?
