New 'World War Z' Trailer Introduces Some Mid-Air Chaos!

Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for Marc Forster’s World War Z, their action packed zombie movie raising the dead on June 21st. This trailer hints at the massive global scope of the film and includes a nifty new airplane scene. I attended a special event for the film yesterday, and will be sharing my thoughts on it late next week.

Starring Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.

    So its an epic action movie that just happens to have zombies in it. Interesting that the trailer doesn’t show a single close up of the zombies – they just look like running people. I’m guessing this is going for thriller vs. horror. Too bad.

      HorrorManiac666, i completely love Mireille Enos (i can’t wait for season 3 of THE KILLING!)!

    Honestly I’m stoked on this film.. Finally a zombie film done different in epic proportions. Zombie films are so much, and so much the same thing maybe with a little different added drama or plot, but nothing visually stunning or insane. This is that. 28 Days Later gave us a push in that direction and World War Z seems to be the one creating the impact. This just looks so much fun that I could be wearing my headphones listening to some of the hardest hip-hop and would enjoy the movie from the beginning to end.

      thank you! I love the chaotic scenes! How you noticed when every time a zombie epidemic happens, the running zombies are not hitting each other? I love this approach that each one is climbing to another and are falling, trashing and stuff – this looks epic!

    i still wonder if they are trying to pull some trickery by not even showing one close up of the infected/zombies. i’m wondering if some people won’t even know it’s about zombies since the word zombie isn’t in the title as well as them not showing that it’s anything other than angry regular people running around.

    but i think it looks great!

      @djblack1313 – I definitely think they’re trying to play down the zombies and market this to the action audience. I do think it looks like it could be fun, but it looks very Hollywood.

    This piece of shit looks worse and worse with every trailer. Here is an idea for the creators….MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE READ THE FUCKING BOOK FIRST!!!!!

      LaidToRest, i think Max is too busy counting all the $$$ he got for the rights to his book! :)

      Dr. murder (tough guy), take your cock out of your OWN ass and get over yourself. it actually brings me joy that this will piss you off so much. it sad that people these days are so self centered and egotistical in thinking they ONLY their opinion is what is “right”.

    Wow on that last sentence/statement, just,, wow lol. Anyhoo, for the book peep’s the movie does go into mass amounts of zombies traveling underwater if that helps as a band-aid for anybodys broken legs. Just sayin..

    I think this will kick ass. The chaos scenes look massive and appropriate for this type of movie. Also am I the only that thought the airplane sequence was cool?

    • Avatar of djblack1313

      doomas10, YES!! i like the first trailer better but i’m totally excited for this movie! it really looks like the third 28 DAYS LATER movie and that’s good to me! i love those movies.

    I just hope that this leaves the possibility open that someone else can still option the book. More than willing to give the film a chance (its all aboot the Zombies after all) however this bears little resemblance to the the source material and that doesn’t leave me with a warm and cozy.

    Kind of turned off that they used Brad Pitt, but otherwise this looks like it’s going to make it onto my ‘must see’ list.

    • Avatar of Scorpionsy

      They used Brad Pitt…because his company, PLAN B, is one of the producers of the movie. It’s that simple. He has he power to choose if he wanted to star in it or not.

    I want to say this looks pretty good but I’m scared that if I do I will be cussed out and dragged bloody in the streets by raging fans of the book.

    I’m shocked that I’m saying this but I think I was wrong; this looks like it’ll really good! There’s nothing wrong with a Hollywood horror movie people, not everything has to be what YOU want to see, there are OTHER people in the world too.
