All you zombie and Brad Pitt fans need to circle this Thursday, November 8 because that is when the first full trailer for World War Z will be released. The long anticipated adaptation of “Max Brooks’ World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War” is almost within sight. Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) directed the zombie apocalyptic flick that stars Pitt, Matthew Fox (Lost), Mireille Enos (The Killing), David Morse (Disturbia) and James Badge Dale (The Grey). Thanks to ET, we are able to share this quick clip with you.
World War Z tells 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.
If this small clip is any indication of what we can expect then it looks like this film is going to be HUGE!
The most thrilling and compelling part of this clip are the scenes of the zombie hordes that to me appear to behave like an army of wild ants overwhelming everything in sight. From the time this project was announced it faced obstacle after obstacle on the road to completion with the biggest concern being the rewrite/reshoot for the films ending.
That concern was heightened after fans read that “Mister Riddle” himself, Damon Lindelof (Prometheus), was brought in to “fix” the ending. As a writer known for leaving more questions than answers, this doesn’t appear to be the kind of film that fans want to walk away from annoyed by missing parts and wondering what they just witnessed. Hopefully his input was on a far lesser scale, especially if Paramount wants the fans to show up for the second installment of the series.
World War Z smashes into theaters June 21st, 2013.
