In 2012, a genetically re-engineered measles virus, originally created as a cure for cancer, turns into a lethal strain which kills 90% of those it infects, mutates 9% into predatory, nocturnal mutants called "Darkseekers" who are extremely vulnerable to sunlight and other sources of UV, with only the remaining 1% immune. Three years after the outbreak, US Army virologist Lieutenant Colonel Robert Neville (Will Smith) lives an isolated life in the ruins of New York City, which is now deserted, unsure if any other uninfected humans are left in the world. The effects of the virus vary in other species, animals that coexist with humans like rats and domestic dogs are infected but wild animals like deer and lions are unaffected. The city has fallen into ruins and overgrown vegetation covers crumbling buildings and wild deer roam the streets while being preyed upon by lions that have escaped Central Park Zoo. Neville's daily routine includes experimentation on infected rats to find a cure for the virus and trips through Manhattan to hunt for food and supplies. He also waits each day for a response to his continuous recorded radio broadcasts, which instruct any uninfected survivors to meet him at midday at the South Street Seaport. Flashbacks reveal that his wife (Salli Richardson) and daughter (Willow Smith) died in a helicopter accident during the chaotic evacuation of Manhattan, prior to the military-enforced quarantine of the island in 2009, in which Neville stays behind on the island as military personnel. Neville's loneliness is mitigated by the companionship of his German Shepherd Sam (given to him by his daughter Marley as a puppy to protect him before she died in the helicopter crash), interaction with mannequins he has set up as patrons at a video store, and recordings of old television broadcasts. At night, he barricades himself and Sam inside his heavily fortified Washington Square Park home to hide from the Darkseekers. One day while waiting for survivors, Sam follows a deer into a dark building. Neville cautiously goes in after her and finds the deer's corpse along with Sam, but the building is infested by a colony of Darkseekers, both manage to escape unharmed and the attacking Darkseekers are killed by the sunlight. Neville finds a promising treatment derived from his own blood, so he sets a snare trap and captures a female Darkseeker while a male Darkseeker (termed "Alpha Male" in the script, and played by Dash Mihok)[6] watches from the shadows. Back in his laboratory in the basement of his house, Neville treats the female without success. The next day, he is ensnared in a trap similar to the one he used to capture the female, and by the time he manages to escape, it is dark and he is attacked by infected dogs. Neville and Sam manage to kill them, but Sam is bitten in the fight. Neville brings Sam home and injects her with a strand of his serum, but when she shows signs of infection and tries to attack him, Neville is forced to strangle her to death. Heartbroken and driven over the edge by loneliness by his dog's death, he ventures out and suicidally attacks a group of Darkseekers the next night. He kills a large number of Darkseekers but the rest overwhelm him and he is nearly killed, but is rescued by a pair of immune survivors, Anna (Alice Braga) and a young boy named Ethan (Charlie Tahan), who have traveled from Maryland after hearing one of his broadcasts. They take the injured Neville back to his home, where Anna explains that they survived the outbreak aboard a Red Cross evacuation ship from São Paulo and are making their way to a survivors' camp in Bethel, Vermont. Neville angrily argues that no such survivors' camp exists. Neville once again attempts to administer a potential cure to the infected woman in his laboratory, but the next night, a group of Darkseekers, who had followed Anna and Neville back the night before, attacks the house and overruns its defenses. Neville, Anna, and Ethan retreat into the basement laboratory, sealing themselves in with the female Darkseeker on which Neville has been experimenting. Discovering that the last treatment was successful, Neville draws a vial of her blood and gives it to Anna, before shutting Ethan and her inside a coal chute in the back of the lab. He then takes a grenade and kills the Darkseekers and himself, saving the cure. The next day, before the crack of dusk, Anna and Ethan discover that her theory is right as they arrive at the survivors' camp in Vermont. They are greeted by some military officers and Anna hands the cure to one of them. Alternative ending[edit] The alpha male makes a butterfly-shaped smear on the glass. Neville realizes that the alpha male is identifying the female upon which he was experimenting by a butterfly tattoo, and the alpha male wants her back. Neville puts his gun down and returns the female. Neville and the alpha male both stare each other down; Neville apologizes to the Darkseekers; the alpha male accepts his apology, and the Darkseekers leave. Shocked by the ordeal, Neville sits down for a moment in his laboratory. Looking over the pictures of his numerous test subjects, the implications of his research methods begin to dawn on him. The final shot follows Neville, Anna, and Ethan as they drive away towards the survivors' camp in Vermont with the antidote

Trama: Lester Burnham è un uomo di mezza età che conduce un'esistenza mediocre ed incolore in compagnia della moglie Carolyn, agente immobiliare schiava delle sue insicurezze e del culto dell'apparenza, e della figlia Jane, adolescente problematica alla ricerca di un senso da dare alla sua vita Lester, inoltre, rischia di essere licenziato dalla ditta di pubblicità nella quale lavora a causa di esuberi di posti. Andando a vedere Jane che si esibisce come ragazza pon-pon per la squadra di basket della scuola, Lester rimane conquistato dall'accattivante Angela, l'amica della figlia, una ragazza pienamente conscia della sua bellezza e del suo sex-appeal: per Lester l'incontro è una rivelazione che lo induce a migliorare la forma fisica per apparire affascinante agli occhi della ragazza. Lester, durante una festa in cui la moglie incontra Buddy Kane - il re degli agenti immobiliari -, conosce Ricky, il suo nuovo vicino di casa, figlio di un rigido colonnello dei marines Ricky, che è innamorato di Jane al punto da riprenderla costantemente con una videocamera, diventa il fornitore di spinelli di Lester, attività che il ragazzo svolge per potersi pagare la passione per l'audiovisivo. L'uomo, sempre più convinto di dover cambiare vita, fa in modo di essere licenziato, ma riesce ad ottenere una lauta liquidazione ricattando il suo superiore, e si impiega come commesso di un fast-food, come aveva fatto in gioventù. Mentre sta servendo nel locale, l'uomo sorprende Carolyn e Buddy in teneri atteggiamenti, ma la cosa non sembra disturbarlo più di tanto: è soltanto la conferma che il suo desiderio di riprendere a vivere fuori da un'esistenza vuota e grigia è la decisione giusta. Mentre Jane risulta disgustata dall'atteggiamento del genitore di apparire affascinante nei confronti di Angela, l'austero padre di Ricky, a causa di un equivoco, pensa che gli appuntamenti che il figlio e Lester si danno per la vendita di spinelli siano dei convegni carnali in cui il ragazzo vende il suo corpo. Il colonnello Fitts, dopo aver picchiato il figlio, si reca da Lester e, disperato, cerca di baciarlo, ma Lester lo allontana, recandosi in casa, dove trova Angela. I due hanno un approccio, ma quando Lester scopre che per la ragazza, contrariamente alle apparenze, sarebbe la prima volta, si ritrae teneramente. Ma intanto nell'abitazione è giunto il colonnello Fitts, che uccide a sangue freddo il povero Lester

Trama: A Leigh Ann Watson, una delle migliori alunne di un liceo statunitense, manca solo un altro giudizio positivo per potersi assicurare una borsa di studio che le permetterà di frequentare l'università (sua madre fa la cameriera e non sarebbe in grado di sostenere una spesa così ingente). Si tratta, tuttavia, proprio del voto dell'insegnante di storia, la terribile Mrs Tingle, che nutre un'antipatia particolare oltre che per Leigh Ann, anche per Jo Lynn Jordan, la migliore amica della ragazza, e per Luke Churner, un ragazzo dal quale Jo Lynn è attratta, ma che corteggia Leigh Ann. Quando l'insegnante boccia una ricerca sulla stregoneria di Leigh Ann e la prospettiva della borsa di studio si allontana, Luke pensa di correre ai ripari passando alla compagna il testo di un compito in classe che è riuscito a sottrarre a un professore. Scoperti da Mrs Tingle, i ragazzi cercano di dissuadere l'insegnante dal denunciarli. Tuttavia, capiscono che solo con le maniere forti otterranno qualcosa: si recano a casa della professoressa e, legatala al letto, decidono di ricattarla scattandole delle foto in intimità con Luke Mrs Tingle, tuttavia, è abile nel mettere una contro l'altra le ragazze, facendo leva sulla gelosia che Jo Lynn, attratta da Luke, prova nei confronti di Leigh Ann che, nel frattempo ha ceduto alle avance del ragazzo. Quando Mrs Tingle riesce a liberarsi e ad entrare in possesso delle foto compromettenti, tutto sembra perduto per i ragazzi che passano dal ruolo di carnefici a quello di vittime: provvidenziale sarà l'intervento del preside che, sorpresa la Tingle nell'atto di minacciare i propri allievi, deciderà di sollevarla dall'incarico. Leigh Ann riuscirà ad ottenere un ottimo voto in storia, a conseguire la borsa di studio e a riconquistare l'amicizia di Jo Lynn
