Why Can't I Do This?

Here's our distributor's synopsis/one-line of our most recent movie:

Trapped on a space station orbiting Earth, a small army of human survivors battle the Undead in order to prevent the destruction of the Earth.

And that's a nice, concise, one-liner. Wow. I wish I'd thought of that while we were shooting. I don't think we would have done anything differently, but that one-liner is just so nice and clear. It's a good way to think about the movie. Then again, our sales rep always has clearer thoughts about our movies than we do. Which is just one more reason for us not to do our own marketing!

UPDATE: as Mr. Kangas pointed out in the comment below, the text on the website (and until just now, the text here) read "humans survivors" which is, of course, grammatically incorrect. I've corrected it here.

Hey, I'm Mr. Nitpicker. Shouldn't it be "human survivors" or just "humans battle"?

Otherwise I dig it. I don't dig that it tells me I can watch a preview on that page and then it just says COMING SOON.

That's too much like when Shelly told me I'd get a BJ on prom night but then she passed out before anything happened. BLUE. BALLS.

Ha! Yes, that's an editorial typo and I glossed over it. It should be "human survivors".
I'm waiting with bated breath for the actual trailer. Sometimes he doesn't upload them to the web site 'till after the AFM.
