After what seems like an eternity we have our very first sneak peek of a movie we may not live to see. World War Z was slated to be released on December 21, 2012 (spooky!), but after production issues, 7 weeks of re-shoots, and Brad Pitt‘s countless hours practicing his “I’m running from zombies, but still need to make the ladies moist” look, the date was disappointingly pushed back to June 20, 2013.
Pending that you aren’t actually experiencing this in the months to come, here is your first glimpse into the zombie apocalypse through the eyes of Max Brooks.
There’s been much debate about the overwhelming use of CGI in this film, as current shows like The Walking Dead have reverted to more old school techniques of liquid latex and prosthetic appliances. Please feel free to let us know what you think in the comments. We know you little bastards will anyways.
Stop the press, this just in! ( If you didn’t read that with a distinct 1920’s gangster accent, you did it wrong.) First look at the poster for the film, and probably every copy of the book printed from here until the end of time. Oh, and don’t forget the little annoying sticker that screams “NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!”
