After five long years of shifting studios, multiple script rewrites, delays and re-shoots pushing it’s release into 2013 it has finally arrived -I Am Legend 2! Just kidding. It’s actually the first full trailer reveal for the apocalyptic zombie film World War Z starring Brad Pitt.
Based on the book of the same name by Max Brooks, World War Z was adapted to film with the help of Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment and Skydance Productions and directed for Paramount Pictures by Marc Forster. The movie tells the story of Gerry Lane (Pitt), a worker at the United Nations, as he searches the globe for information that can stop the zombie outbreak that is bringing down the nations of the world. We featured a sneak of the trailer a few days ago, but here is the complete package in its PG-13 tailored glory.
Honestly, from what we’ve seen so far this doesn’t look half bad. Paramount is offering viewers their own type of zombie, one that’s smarter and almost similar to the Vampire-based monsters of I Am Legend, except they won’t burn up in sunlight. A wise decision, considering if this pays off World War Z will be the first in a reported trilogy of films.
We’ll have to see how it all plays out as more of World War Z is released to the public and you know we’re going to keep you posted.
World War Z, starring Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale and Matthew Fox hits theaters everywhere June 21st, 2013.
