  8. 8. With the events it seems to mostly be in chronological order with the odd scene being added to keep it scary or jumpy. But the Diary of the dead, Resident Evil: Afterlife and 28 days later, don’t show much as events to do with the storyline but concentrate more on showing the action or zombies. This is probably to make the audience want to watch the film in the cinema to see the storyline, rather then giving it away in the trailer. It does show some characters and who the enemy is. But with those that actually show particular events. They generally follow the pattern of showing the world either before the devastation, or just after when the world is destroyed and empty. Then shows the protagonist or survivors. Before then hinting towards something evil and scary with out actually showing it, most of the trailers only actually showed the zombies in the last halve of the trailer. I think this is to build tension and keep people interested in the advert and film. Then it shows them trying to survive the ungodly villains. Leaving it open as to whether they survive or not to make people want to watch the film. Some questions are left open to make people want to watch the film but others are answered in the trailer such as who are they fighting, then show a clip of the zombie. <br />
