Earlier today we posted the theatrical teaser poster for I Am Legend. We told you that the movie trailer would be online tonight, and now here it is. And I must admit, this movie looks even cooler than I thought it was going to be. I always thought the scenes in 28 Days Later of the abandoned city were incredible. And the shot of Tom Cruise running in a completely empty Times Square in Cameron Crowe’s Vanilla Sky was amazing. While both of the aforementioned movie examples didn’t make use of the advances in computer generated effects, it looks like I Am Legend has done that. They have created a surreal world where Will Smith is the only man on earth… or is he? You must check out the trailer after the jump, followed by the film’s official plot synopsis.

We highly recommend you check out the trailer in High Definition at Apple.com if you have a capable system.
“My name is Robert Neville.Â I am a survivor living in New York.Â If there is anybody out thereâ€¦anybody.Â Please.Â You are not alone.”
Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable, and man-made.Â Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and maybe the world.Â Â For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there.Â But he is not alone.Â Mutant victims of the plague-The Infected-lurk in the shadowsâ€¦watching Neville’s every moveâ€¦waiting for him to make a fatal mistake.Â Perhaps mankind’s last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood.Â But he knows he is outnumberedâ€¦and quickly running out of time.
