Despite being plagued with plenty of rumored production problems, the epic and high budget zombie extravaganza WORLD WAR Z is hitting theaters June 21st, 2013, whether they’re ready or not! And now we finally have a look at some footage as Paramount has released this first trailer. Now, initial thoughts… definitely doesn’t look bad. It looks like a big budget super movie with fast 28 DAYS LATER style zombies. (Although there’s not a single good look at any of the zombies up close, rumor has it because the studio can’t decide what they want the zombies to look like in the final film. Hopefully this doesn’t turn out like I AM LEGEND.) Anyways, while I haven’t read the original book by Max Brooks (it’s most definitely on my queue) I’ve already heard complaints from fans of the source material that this movie shares nothing in common with the book besides the title. So if you can get past the fact that Brad Pitt stars in a zombie movie that has nothing to do with the book it’s based on, then maybe it’ll be fun? Have a peek below and sign off in the comments sections!
Directed by Marc Foster and starring Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale & Matthew Fox, WORLD WAR Z opens June 21st, 2013.
