World-War-Z-Banner-SydneyBrad Pitt is just a few weeks away from returning to the multiplex in World War Z, which promises to be the zombie blockbuster of the year, unlike anything the genre has seen before.

The latest poster arrived at the start of the week, giving us a look at Pitt ushering his on-screen family to safety. And following on nicely from that come six new banners, via Total Film, in which we get a look at why he’s so concerned about his family, showing us the destruction that’s taken hold all over the globe.

United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to decimate humanity itself.

Pitt stars alongside an excellent cast, led by Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Lucy Aharish, Matthew Fox, Bryan Cranston, Abigail Hargrove, Sterling Jerins, and David Morse.

Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) is behind the camera, directing from a script by Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom), loosely based on the original novel by Max Brooks, with Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) brought in to do re-writes for the re-shoots.

With just over three weeks to go before World War Z hits theatres, my anticipation is definitely on the rise for this one. The film will be making its world premiere here in London on Sunday night (followed by a free 30-minute set from Muse, whose music will feature in the film), and I can’t wait to hear the early responses.

World War Z will be released in 3D on June 21st in the US and UK. Whilst we count down the days, here are the new banners to give you a look at the global destruction soon to be hitting screens around the world.
