Can Brad Pitt save the world?
Brad Pitt faces some scary fast-running zombies in the new “World War Z” trailer, the first full look at the post-apocalyptic horror film that was originally scheduled to hit theaters in December. Pitt stars as UN worker Gerry Lane, who leaves his family to travel around the world for an answer to the undead epidemic. The film also stars “The Killing” actress Mireille Enos as his wife, David Morse, Matthew Fox and James Badge Dale. Based on Max Brooks’ novel “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War,” the Marc Forster-directed adaptation opens June 21.
The official full-length trailer for the post-apocalyptic World War Z starts off rather innocently, with a family stuck in city traffic playing “20 Questions.” Then, out of nowhere, police on motorcycles zoom through the stalled cars, taking side mirrors along with them. Helicopters and mysterious explosions create city-wide panic, as an officer warns people to keep inside their cars, before getting blasted by a garbage truck himself.
The two-and-a-half-minute trailer reveals the mass hysteria surrounding the impending zombie apocalypse and what one man, U.N. employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), will do to make sure his wife (Mireille Enos) and young daughters are safe. While their safety is threatened by fast-moving zombies (they run!), the footage captures the magnitude of this worldwide catastrophe as the human population takes a dramatic toll.
World War Z will hit theaters June 13, 2013.
