First Look At 28 Weeks Later

"This is a shit idea. You know why? Because it's really obviously a shit idea."

That was my initial reaction to hearing that a sequel to 28 Days Later was in the works, but having seen the new test footage of 28 Weeks Later over at the Fox Atomic website, my initial skepticism is quickly giving way to real excitement. Despite garland and Boyle not being involved in the project, it seems like this film will maintain the 'feel' of 28 Days later, and I'm also glad to see that it still seems to be based in the UK, as I'd heard many reports to the contrary. I didn't realise that it was slated for a spring 2007 release, which means we'll be getting the movie sooner rather than later. I'm still mentally processing everything in the footage, so it's probably going to take a while for everything (the cast, hints at the deeper storyline and so forth) to sink in before I put my speculation hat on.

Scientists in a lab? This can only lead to them causing trouble.

I also wonder if they'll try giving it the same kind of ending as they originally had for the first film.

I'm still not fully convinced by the footage, it's vague enough that it could just look like a Starship Troopers 2-style straight-to-video (DVD?) sequel. but I admit it looks better than I'd have initially expected. It should've been called 28 Days Laterer, though.
