The world is being threatened on a massive scale this summer. Man of Steel, This is the End, Pacific Rim, The World's End and more are bringing destruction to Earth, and now World War Z is really getting in on the international destruction game. A whole slew of new banners targeting major cities around the world have been revealed showing that the world isn't doing to well in the wake of some sort of viral epidemic. Paris, Berlin, Mexico City, Rome and Sydney are all smoking on fire and seemingly lost. Plus, there's a new theatrical poster featuring Brad Pitt and his family caught up in the fiery chaos. But will the film deliver?

World War Z 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) and revised by Damon Lindelof (Star Trek, Prometheus). It's adapted from Max Brooks' beststelling zombie book World War Z. Paramount will release World War Z in theaters on June 21st after being delayed from December last year.
