We posted up some more pictures from the upcoming movie I AM LEGEND. For those of
you that don't know, I AM LEGEND is an apocalyptic tale about the last man on earth.
Based on Richard Matheson's
novel, Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but
even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable…and
manmade. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New
York City…and maybe the world. But he is not alone. He is surrounded by “the Infected”—
victims of the plague who have mutated into carnivorous beings who can only exist in the
dark and who will devour or infect anyone or anything in their path. For three years,
Neville has spent his days scavenging for food and supplies and faithfully sending out radio
messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there.

All the while, 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 his blood is also what The Infected hunt, and Neville knows he is
outnumbered and quickly running out of time. Directed by Francis Lawrence, I AM LEGEND
stars Will Smith, Salli Richardson, Paradox Pollack, Alice Braga, Charlie Tahan, Michael
Ciesla and Thomas J. Pilutik. You can visit the official website over at  iamlegend.
warnerbros.com. The book was previously adapted into a movie in

com. The book was previously adapted into a movie in 1964 with THE LAST MAN ON
EARTH starring Vincent Price and in 1971 with
OMEGA MAN starring Charlton Heston.
Expect I AM LEGEND to hit theatres on December 14th, 2007.

The first official still from Warner Bros' I AM LEGEND has appeared online. In the picture
you'll see Will Smith as Robert Neville. Based on Richard Matheson's
novel, Robert Neville is
the last man alive. In Los Angeles, he busies himself with preparing for a nightly attack
from the rest of the world - all of which have transformed into blood-thirsty vampires.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, I AM LEGEND stars Alice Braga, Justin Morck, Salli
Richardson, Will Smith and Gabrielle Union. Expect I AM LEGEND to hit theatres on
December 14, 2007.

The book is one of the most influential vampire novels of the 20th century. I AM LEGEND
regularly appears on the "10 Best" lists of numerous critical studies of the horror genre. As
Richard Matheson's third novel, it was first marketed as science fiction (for although
written in 1954, the story takes place in a future 1976). A terrible plague has decimated
the world, and those who were unfortunate enough to survive have been transformed into
blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Except, that is, for Robert Neville. He alone appears
to be immune to this disease, but the grim irony is that now he is the outsider.

He is the legendary monster who must be destroyed because he is different from everyone
else. Employing a stark, almost documentary style, Richard Matheson was one of the first
writers to convince us that the undead can lurk in a local supermarket freezer as well as a
remote Gothic castle. His influence on a generation of bestselling authors--including
Stephen King and Dean Koontz--who first read him in their youth is, well, legendary.
