The film will be making its world premiere in London this coming Sunday, followed by a free gig from Muse, whose music is set to appear in the movie. And ahead of this weekend’s bow, we’ve got a brand new poster to share, with Pitt and his on-screen looking for shelter.
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 is joined by a great 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.
This is a blockbuster I’ve been looking forward to for a while now, with the anticipation rising even higher since that epic first trailer was released towards the end of last year. In World War Z, we have a zombie blockbuster bigger than any we’ve seen before, we have Brad Pitt leading an awesome cast, and we have a killer soundtrack to look forward to from Muse. There can really be no wrong here.
World War Z will be premiering in London this Sunday, and will be released in 2D and 3D on June 21st in the US and UK. Here’s the latest poster whilst we count down the weeks.
