Would be nice to know. I would hope it would insert some blood or possibly something filmed they took out that is a part of the original book. Still loved the movie but the Brad Pitt beating the zombie with a clean crowbar was pretty dumb. There is nothing on Wikipedia or here and the movie is being released in seven days?
So first it's tax charges on amazon, now no info b4 the release? Quess I am canceling my pre-order until I know what's going on here...
i was thinking to cancel too because the regular edition is cheaper and i really want to know if the unrated is really worthy because if the only change is the blood, that's not something important in my opinion since i liked the movie even without blood. Bu i want new parts or the so commented ending that did not see the theaters or if Amazon can exchange it after the release for part reimbursement.
According to Roger Edwards review on "Contains Moderate Peril ", the material is more violent alternative takes of existing action scenes and features mainly CGI effects work. There is no additional plot, although there may be some nominal changes to dialogue. Overall the unrated cut is an improvement over the theatrical print in so far it offers a more traditional zombie movie experience. However, compared to other examples of the genre, even the unrated version of World War Z still remains relatively sedate in terms of violence. The movie is far more focused on the scale of the zombie outbreak, rather than the standard gut muching mayhem of say a George Romero movie.
I just watched the unrated version this afternoon, and it's significantly bloodier than the theatrical version. Some of the zombies are killed in more graphic ways (Pitt crushes a zombie's head with his foot in one scene.) There is also more spraying/spurting blood from the zombies victims. The scene where Pitt cuts off the Israeli soldier's hand is now much more bloody and graphic (as it should have been.) Overall, a much better version than the theatrical one. This one definitely would have been rated "R", but it's still quite tame compared to either "The Walking Dead" or any of the Romero zombie films.
Thank you for sharing your after-watch review of the unrated version. I will keep the movie them when it arrives so i can watch the bloodier version and for everyone else that don't like blood can enjoy it too. I have a niece that like zombies, but as you know, that means blood everywhere and i don't let her watch it as she would like, but the pg 13 yes.
