You’ve seen the 30-second preview trailer, now take a look at the rather impressive first official trailer for Brad Pitt and director Marc Forster’s “World War Z”, a film that has become popular among netizens and industry types for its troubled production (including reported extensive rewriting and shooting). The filmmakers are envisioning this as the first of a trilogy (who isn’t nowadays?), so let’s see what they got. I’m still not digging how fast the zombies are moving. Okay, I get it, fast zombies are cool with the kids (give me the Romero/”The Walking Dead” slow ones any day), but damn, these guys are FAST.
Also, I thought Pitt’s character was just some United Nations pencil pusher who goes around the world recording events of the zombie apocalypse. From the looks of this trailer, he’s more like some ex-super badass type fella who has to save the world. I could be wrong, of course.
“World War Z” also stars Eric West, Matthew Fox, David Morse, James Badge Dale, Mireille Enos, David Andrews, and Elyes Gabel.
The Zombiepocalypse begins June 21, 2013.
