Experience 'I Am Legend' in Digital Cinema or IMAX at Your Local Megaplex Theatre
I Am Legend Opens Thursday, December 13 with Special Advanced Midnight Screenings
Megaplex Theatres, 12 December 2007
Salt Lake City, Utah – On Wednesday, December 13, audiences will be “infected” with thrills and chills at a special midnight showing of I Am Legend at local Megaplex Theatres. I Am Legend opens nationwide on December 14, 2007, and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures. This film is rated PG-13.
I Am Legend features Robert Neville, (Will Smith) as 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/Overbrook Entertainment Production, “I Am Legend,” starring two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (“The Pursuit of Happyness,” “Ali”), Alice Braga and Dash Mihok. The film is directed by Francis Lawrence. The screenplay is by Mark Protosevich and Akiva Goldsman, based on the novel by Richard Matheson. Akiva Goldsman, James Lassiter, David Heyman and Neal Moritz are the producers, with Michael Tadross, Erwin Stoff, Dana Goldberg and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers, and Tracy Torme co-producing.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Andrew Lesnie, production designer Naomi Shohan, editor Wayne Wahrman, costume designer Michael Kaplan, and composer James Newton Howard.
