SPORTSCASTER: ...went down to spring training camp

and he's definitely got the inside track.

Word is that they're having some problems with injuries.


And, uh, are they looking into free agent signings

last second, anything like that, or...?

SPORTSCASTER: Possibly, and they've got a strong farm club, too.

They've got some triple-A ballplayers

they might be bringing up, but again,

Peter would certainly be able to tell us

a little more about that in the next half hour.

SPORTSCASTER 2: Who do you like?

Well, I'm telling you,

so far, I like what I'm seeing in New York.

They've got a strong ball club, as usual.

That's in the American, and in the National,

I'm still liking Chicago

with a little bit of a twist here for Los Angeles.

SPORTSCASTER 2: Okay, so we're looking at

New York-Chicago World Series, possible Los Angeles.

You got it here.

They could be a dark horse.

SPORTSCASTER 2: Hey, hold him to it at the end of the season.

That's gonna do it for us from the Sports Desk right now.

Back to you guys in the studio. Thanks, Dave.

SPORTSCASTER: Thanks for nothing, Eddie.

ANCHOR: Thank you, guys, and that's not all we're following.

Here's Karen at the Health Desk.

The world of medicine has seen its share of miracle cures,

from the polio vaccine to heart transplants,

but all past achievements may pale

in comparison to the work of Dr. Alice Krippin.

Thank you so much for joining us this morning.

Not at all.

So, Dr. Krippin, give it to me in a nutshell.

Well, the premise is quite simple.

Um, take something designed by nature and reprogram it

to make it work for the body, rather than against it.

You're talking about a virus?

Indeed. Yes, in this case, the measles, um, virus,

which has been engineered at a genetic level

to be helpful rather than harmful.

Um, I'm not... I find the best way to describe it

is if you can, if you can imagine your body as a highway

and you picture the virus as a very fast car, um,

being driven by a very bad man,

imagine the damage that that car could cause.


But then, if you replace that man with a cop,

the picture changes, and that's essentially what we've done.

And how many people have you treated so far?

Well, we've had 10,009,

um, clinical trials in humans so far.

And how many are cancer-free?

Ten thousand and nine.

So, you have actually cured cancer?

Yes, yes.

Yes, we have.

ANN CURRY: Hey, good morning, Matt.

It is looking great, I'll tell you.

I mean, and not only was this now the biggest snowstorm

in New York City history, it's gotta be one of the prettiest.

Imagine waking up on Sunday morning to 26.9 inches of snow

in New York City...

Here you go. Just the way you like it.


'Scuse me, 'scuse me.

ANN CURRY: It was quiet.

All right. Come on, relax.

...however, did strand

There was a report that a Turkish Airlines flight

skidded off the runway at JFK.

No one was injured, but for the most part, Matt...

Here you go.

I'm gonna show you the, uh, Bob Hager rule of thumb here,

and I'm gonna plug my ruler in, and in New York, uh,

Back to you, Matt and Katie.

MATT LAUER: Gosh! All right, it looks great.

It'll be beautiful for the next day, at least.

And then it turns brown.

COURIC: If, if that.

LAUER: Yeah.

COURIC: Anyway, Ann, thanks so much.


No, no, no.

Eat your vegetables.

Don't just push 'em around.

Eat-eat 'em. I'm not playing.

REPORTER: Good morning, Katie.

This morning, all up the East Coast, Virginia...

Okay. You gonna eat your vegetables.

We will sit down here all night.

(Sam whining)

What are you whining about?

Why didn't you just eat your vegetables?

Ah, eh, all right, here's the deal. Look, look...

you're gonna eat twice as many vegetables tomorrow night.

All right?

All right, when you get across, I need you to get to the ATM.

Get as much cash as you can get.

Mommy, look, it's a butterfly.

Can I just tell you, you was really

great back there-- and those guards,

they thought they was all that.

Then you showed up, and bam,

they was trippin' over themselves

like babes in the woods.

See that, that made me feel good to see that.

Oh, that's great. Really. Man, it's good to be free.

Now, why don't you go celebrate your freedom

with your own friends?


But, uh...

I don't have any friends.

And I'm not going out there by myself.

Hey, wait a minute, I got a great idea.

I'll stick with you!

DONKEY (alone): You a mean, green fightin' machine.

Together we'll scare the spit out of anybody that crosses us.

(Shrek roars fiercely)

I like Shrek.

DONKEY: Wow! That was really scary!

And if you don't mind me saying, if that don't work,

your breath certainly will get the job done,

'cause you definitely need some Tic Tacs or something,

'cause your breath stinks!

Man, you almost burned the hair off my nose.

Just like the time... (continues indistinctly)

You're not so good with people anymore, are you?

Thank you for my leg.


Where have you been?

I was on a Red Cross evacuation ship

out of Sao Paulo.

Those boats weren't meant to be permanent.

No, they weren't.

When the navy fell apart, we starting docking

to take on supplies.

Someone picked it up on shore.

Five of us were immune.

You said five?

The Darkseekers got them.

You are the Robert Neville, aren't you?

It's too late today.

If we leave tomorrow at dawn,

we can make it to Vermont in a straight shot.

So, if you head...

I'm not leaving.

This is ground zero.

This is my site.

I'm not gonna let this happen.

I can still fix this.

(steady beeping)

(rapid panting)

(door opens)

(door bangs shut)

ROBERT: Whoa. Scared me.



I called down twice.

Oh. Well, uh, thank you.

Um... it's, uh, heavily sedated.

Don't worry, it's safe.

I've never seen one so still.

They're always biting.

You think that can cure her?

Um... no, this will almost certainly kill it,

but it's possible by drastically reducing

the body temperature I can increase

the compound's effectiveness.

(sips coffee)

Did all of them die?


My God.

God didn't do this, Anna.

We did.

Where can Ethan sleep?

(Robert grunts quietly)

He's heavy.

(quietly): Check the bedroom.


She's beautiful.

What's her name?


Her name was Marley.

It's a beautiful name.

Yeah, we named her after Bob Marley.


Uh, the singer.

Uh, Damian?

Uh, his father?

His father.

You don't recognize that?



(song continues)

He had this idea, it was...

kind of a virologist's idea.

Um, he believed that you could cure racism and hate,

literally cure it, by injecting music and love

into people's lives.

Two days later,

Stir it together

He said the people who are trying to make this world worse

are not taking a day off.

How can I?

Now you are here

It's so clear

Light up the darkness.

There's so much

We could do, baby

(shutters and doors rumbling, slamming)

Come with us, Neville.

To the colony.

There's no colony, Anna.

Everything just fell apart.

There was no evacuation plan...

You're wrong-- there is a colony.

I know, okay?

How do you know, Anna?

(locking shutter)

I just know.


I said, how do you know?

How could you know?

God told me.

He has a plan.

God told you?


The God.


I know how this sounds.

It sounds crazy.

But something

told me to turn on the radio.

Something told me to come here.

My voice on the radio told you to come here, Anna.

You were trying to kill yourself last night, right?


And I got here just in time to save your life.

Stop it.

Do you think that's a coincidence?

Just stop it.

He must have sent me here for a reason.

What are you doing? Stop.

The world is quieter now.

We just have to listen.

If we listen...

we can hear God's plan.

God's plan.

(whispers): Yeah.

All right, let me tell you about your "God's plan."

There were six billion people on the Earth

when the infection hit.

KV had a 90% kill rate-- that's 5.4 billion

people dead.

Crashed and bled out, dead!

Less a one percent immunity

that left 12 million healthy people like you, me and Ethan.

The other 588 million...

turned into your Darkseekers.

And then they got hungry,

and they killed and fed

on everybody!


Every single person

that you or I has ever known

is dead!


There is no God. There is no God.

(distant clatter)

What is that?

Was it still dark when you brought us home last night?

You were bleeding.

There was light on the horizon.

Turn the light off. Turn it off.

(groans softly)

(eerie growling and grunting)

They followed us home.

You okay?

I'm good.

(Ethan whimpers)

(fierce roaring)

Go to the lab.

Downstairs. Go!

Get to the lab! To the lab!

Get behind the Plexi.

Oh, my God. Come on.

Come on. It's okay, it's okay.

Oh, my God.

ANNA: It's working.


it's working.

Stop! Stop!

Look! Look! Look, I can save you!

I can sav... I can help you.

You are sick and I can help!

I can... I can fix this! I can save everybody!


I can fix everything!

It's working!



Stop! Stop!

Let me save you! Let me save you!

No! No!

MARLEY: Daddy, look. It's a butterfly.

Robert... what are you doing?

The cure is in her blood.

The coal chute.

I think it'll be safe.

Ethan, get in.

Come on.

Come on, get in. Get in.




I think this is why you're here.


(glass crackling)

What are you doing?

I'm listening.

Neville, there is room in here. Come.

No, they're not gonna stop. They're not gonna stop.

Stay until dawn.

ANNA: In 2009, a deadly virus

burned through our civilization,

pushing humankind to the edge of extinction.

Dr. Robert Neville dedicated his life

to the discovery of a cure

and the restoration of humanity.

On September 9, 2012, at approximately 8:49 p.m.,

he discovered that cure.

And at 8:52, he gave his life to defend it.

We are his legacy.

This is his legend.

Light up the darkness.
