I am Rick Grimes' missing hand

How World War Z‘s VFX crew used AI to create the zombie swarm

Ok… so there’s something I noticed about World War Z. Watch the trailer at the 1:30 min mark. Brad Pitt says “I need to get into Russia” The Mossad guy says “Russia is a black hole”

Well when you watch the film they change Russia to India for some reason and you never really understand why. Anyone else catch this?

Ok I figured it out. There was an alternate ending in Russia. They cut it out. 

Here’s How ‘World War Z’ Originally Ended Before the Reshoots

My World War Z Review:I really liked it! It’s a solid zombie movie. It’s the biggest scale zombie movie I’ve ever seen. No it’s not the book at all, but that’s ok because it’s also not a cheesy piece of crap. They did a great job of showing the scale of the zombie apocalypse while still having character development. Although, there were a few moments that bugged me. 1. The airplane crash was the most ridiculous thing ever. Nobody could have survived that and of course ONLY having the main characters survive is even more crazy. Should of just made it a rough landing and not the complete destruction of the entire plane. 2. The people that were “immune” was a great idea. However they would still be trampled by the HUGE swarm of zombies running down the streets. I did LOVE the DayZ reference with the Mountain Dew can. When the guy kicked the can and attracted the zombies we all laughed. In DayZ Mountain Dew’s are unlucky so you should never drink them. Always leave them be!Overall I thought it was a solid zombie flick. Definitely worth checking out. They were able to make it scary and exciting with a PG-13 rating and still keep you engaged. The Walking Dead has rated R gore but little character development.

DayZ Log: Killing Machine

I was playing for a little bit yesterday in Elektro. I was camping out in a building that overlooks the grocery store just waiting for a pack of matches to appear so I could head out into the woods. I was just about to run across the street to another building when I hear TONS of pistol shots and zombie screams up the block. 

I slowly work my way to a window that looks down an alley to the Church where I see SWARMS of zombies running into it. I wait… hear more shots and more zombies run in. I zoom my rifle towards the doorway of the church waiting for players to run out. Maybe I can take one of them out and then the other when he comes to rescue. 

Right then I see THREE players rush out with dozens of zombies on them. They are too fast to hit. I move over to the other side of my apartment and watch all three of them run into the grocery store. I wait for one of them to crouch down to pick up and item. I shoot him in the back… he drops. I pan to the right and headshot his friend before he hears it. The third runs out the back super fast. 

The first player I shot starts to get up and I take him out with a second shot. Firing three shots with my rifle attracts every zombie in a 2 block radius. So I place my gun on the floor and take out my hatchet (Silent one shot weapon)

I kill about 8 zombies until they stop coming. Right as I kill the last zombie I hear footsteps in the grocery store. It’s a bandit trying to loot the players I killed. I put my hatchet away and pick up my rifle. I aim and shoot the bandit in his leg. I hear it break from across the st. He crawls to safety but right before he can I put another shot in his back killing him. 

This of course attracts more zombies. I repeat my method of dropping my rifle, getting out my hatchet and killing zombies. Everyone now and then one gets a hit on me and I’m forced to bandage and eat all my food to get my health back. 

Right after finishing a can of beans I hear footsteps. Not zombie footsteps. I get my rifle and wait while aiming down the hallway. I had placed a free ghillie suit at the end of the hallway as bait. Players can’t resist camo outfits. So I hope one will stop to pick it up and buy me time to shoot them. 

I see the tip of a shoulder maybe as someone stops to get the ghillie suit. But it’s not enough of a target. He equips the suit and starts to walk in when he sees me and runs into a room. 

I have two choices. I can run after him and risk injury OR I can fire my rifle attracting zombies into his room and mine. So I fire 5 shots attracting another 10 zombies. I can hear him wasting all his pistol rounds into them as they pour in. I then charge the room and shoot him dead. 

Right as I’m looting the food he had, I hear someone running up the stairs. I turn and a player has a pistol drawn. He unloads the entire clip into me and I drop dead… He must have been watching the whole thing from across the road…
