The full, glorious zombie-filled trailer for Brad Pitt’s “World War Z” arrives in a couple of days. Until then, the studio has released a snazzy new teaser poster for the film featuring the title treatment and, um, black space. Hey, it’s a teaser. Whaddaya want?
“World War Z” is based on the bestselling book by Max Brooks, but to hear fans of the book tell it, that 30-second snippet they saw of the trailer seems to have little connection to the book itself. I guess you would call this a “loose” adaptation.
Besides the Pittster, “World War Z” co-stars Eric West, Matthew Fox, David Morse, James Badge Dale, Mireille Enos, David Andrews, Elyes Gabel, and is directed by former Bond man Marc Forster.
Thanks to a huge amount of reported rewrites and reshoots, the war won’t begin until next year on June 21, 2013.
