‘World War Z’ Trailer: Brad Pitt Has A Slight Zombie Problem

Brad Pitt in World War Z

With all that has happened to Marc Forster‘s adaptation of Max BrooksWorld War Z, you might think that the zombie apocalypse actually happened. For one thing, the film, which stars Brad Pitt, went through many rewrites and reshoot, by the time the film actually entered the extensive reshooting phase, which forced the film to push back its original release date, many deemed the film dead on arrival.

So a new trailer has arrived and you can judge for yourself if the film was worth the wait, but from what I have been hearing, the film is a complete departure from the Brooks’ novel, and that is sure to upset fans of the book. Check it out below.

The trailer is filled with the generic zombie hoopla: chaos, blaring music, a lot of running, killing, and of course zombies. The full trailer does look a lot better than what Entertainment Tonight posts, but I still cannot help but feel that this won’t live up to the hype, even with Pitt starring in the lead role.

Still, we are seven months away from the release of World War Z, and I suspect there might be something that could save this film from certain doom.

Check out the full trailer for World War Z in HD on Apple.

Here’s the plot synopsis.

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.



  1. It looks like it could have been a decent zombie movie in it’s own right. But in the context of the book, I’m initially disappointed. It looks like they are taking some events from the book and working them into a cliche zombie story. I just don’t think the people who made this movie trusted the general population to accept the movie as a series of personal narratives, that as a whole, tell the story of the zombie apocalypse. It could have been so good. Too bad. On a side note, I don’t like that the zombies look like “runners”. I’m pretty sure in the book they were slow moving. That was important to some of the stories told.

  2. The Zombies move like gazzels, come on, so much potential and i think this movie will suck. Zombies that can run, jump, like gazzels, climb like ants, looks like they will have a horrible movie. What makes a good movie is that you still have to have the believibility factor in it, to much over the top going on with the Zombies
