I am Legend v. The Omega Man

A few weeks ago I saw the trailer for the upcoming film I Am Legend, which is based on the spectacular Richard Matheson novel. It stars Will Smith, and is scheduled for release this December. It looks decent: exciting, dark, and coolish. Although it doesn't seem to fit my memories of the novel much, but then again what movie based on a novel does?

And speaking of films based on Matheson's I Am Legend that don't follow the book much at all. Here is the trailer for the semi-cool (can I admit I sort of like this one?) Charlton Heston film The Omega Man. It is cheesy, over-dramatic, and takes itself way to seriously, but it is still has its moments. One of those moments is the ringing telephones. Too cool. Enjoy.
