To follow-up on Tom’s “I am Legend” news a little while ago, here’s more information about the film from IESB, including the release date of the trailer (tonight!) over at Apple.com (which means high-definition goodness), a movie synopsis, as well as a better look at the poster recently released by Warner Brothers. Most people don’t seem to be thrilled by the poster, but I’m not displeased at all. It says what it needs to be said: One man alone, Will Smith, WATCH IT! What’s more to be said?
Here’s the official studio description for “I am Legend”:
“My name is Robert Neville. I am a survivor living in New York. If there is anybody out there…anybody. Please. You are not alone.”
Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable, and man-made. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and maybe the world. For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. But he is not alone. Mutant victims of the plague””The Infected””lurk in the shadows…watching Neville’s every move…waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind’s last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But he knows he is outnumbered…and quickly running out of time.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Weed Road/Three Arts Entertainment Production, “I Am Legend,” starring Will Smith.
