I am dying to see Will Smith’s take on Richard Matheson’s “I am Legend”. I get the feeling (and maybe I’m wrong) that it’s going to veer quite a bit from the novel, and I’m almost certain they’re going to change the ending. Or are they? Yes, I’m pretty sure they’re going to change the novel’s ending to something more uplifting. After all, it’s a little difficult to have a sequel (since one has already been announced) with the ending of the original novel still intact. So anyways, some more stills from the movie that I haven’t seen before have popped up online (or maybe I have seen them but have just forgotten).
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.
