Movie Date: The Summer of Zombies

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Call it the summer of zombies! World War Z is just one of the movies this season with an apocalyptic feel.

"I think fast zombies are really about fear of outside forces, about terrorism, about anxieties ... with everything from diseases to our international relations," said Movie Date Co-Host Kristen Meinzer. World War Z definitely taps into those latter fears."

But there are also some good magic and some teen sex comedies playing on the silver screen. Meinzer talks about some of the highlights, including This is the End, Pacific Rim, The Heat and The To-Do List.
