Similarly to Outbreak, the pandemic in 28 Days Later also starts out with infected monkeys. But unlike the virus in Outbreak, this one turns those infected into violent, ravenous zombies (think Dawn of the Dead on speed). Perhaps social distancing is especially important when it comes to our primate friends.
Based on Richard Matheson’s influential novel of the same name, I Am Legend is set in a world where mankind has been wiped out by a virus and a US Army virologist (played by Will Smith) is one of the last remaining humans. Along with his dog, he works to develop a cure for the virus while avoiding the zombie/vampire hybrids that come out at night.
