Another teaser for the teaser. Worst of all, this one is from Entertainment Tonight, meaning it's plagued by the worst kind of graphic overlays and editing mishaps. (Can we please start a petition to boycott any ET premieres?) However, since this is the first finished footage from one highly anticipated upcoming zombie movie, it's worth watching anyway. This teaser footage is for World War Z, the adaptation of Max Brooks' zombie novel starring Brad Pitt as a UN rep recounting the zombie war. And damn there are zombies, hundreds of thousands of millions of them. It might be the best part of this brief 30-sec tease. Take a look!
Here's the first "In 3 Days" teaser footage from ET for Marc Forster's World War Z uploaded on YouTube:
A UN employee racing against time and fate travels the world trying to stop a growing zombie pandemic.
This World War Z movie is directed by German filmmaker Marc Forster, of films Monster's Ball, Finding Neverland, Stranger Than Fiction, The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace and Machine Gun Preacher previously. The screenplay was written by Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom, State of Play), revised by Damon Lindelof (Star Trek, Prometheus). It's adapted from Max Brooks' beststelling zombie book World War Z. Paramount is adapting this and preparing Marc Forster's World War Z for a release next summer, starting June 21st, 2013, after being delayed from December. Stay tuned for the trailer. First thoughts?
