World War Z: New Trailer & Posters - Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey Friday, March 29, 2013

With World War Z set to open in June, Paramount has finally release the first official poster as well as a new trailer for the live action adaptation of World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by German-Swiss film-maker Marc Forster and actor Brad Pitt. 

While Jonathan Levine's cinematic adaptation of Isaac Marion's Warm Bodies gave us a refreshing take on the done-to-death trope of the undead kind by letting us in to the most habitable and chirpiest zombie-infested world ever with the well-received zom-rom-com (Zombie Romantic Comedy), we can safely depend on World War Z to bring us down to earth to a pseudo-realistic and gritty vision of a world ravaged by a zombie apocalypse. 

And if this ever-increasing sense of alarming urgency is what German-Swiss film-maker Marc Forster and actor Brad Pitt would like to convey in their live action adaptation of author Max Brooks' 2006 acclaimed post-apocalyptic horror novel, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, then they have succeed in this latest trailer that both strengthen the scope of the film of which the zombie apocalypse is perceived as a serious crisis on a serious scale as well as humanizing Brad Pitt's role as the protagonist of the film.

With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the new trailer.

Head over to Collider for an interview with director Marc Forster as he covers intriguing details of the film including how in the world of the film, zombie films exist and that the characters talk about "zombies."

Back in February, being big fans of aesthetically-arresting posters to drum up the marketing campaign of a film here at The Daily Zombies, we bemoaned the lack of efforts on the part of the graphic department for Paramount and applauded The Print Posse, a collective ensemble of eight talented artists who teamed together to roll out some of the most eye-catching film posters of the year. With the film's release date mere months away, two official new posters (despite coming from one common image) have been released. In keeping with the film's horrific visual of hordes of zombies, the poster featured heaps of undead as well. Hit the jump to check out these posters.

Here’s a synopsis for the film:

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who 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. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.

Co-starring Anthony Mackie, Matthew Fox, Mireille Enos, and James Badge Dale, World War Z is currently scheduled to be released on June 21, 2013.
