Smoke. Helicopters. Brad Pitt. That's all you really need to sell an action movie! No zombies. Though plenty of those can always be Photoshopped into the rubble if they really want. Paramount has unveiled a second poster for World War Z, the Marc Forster-directed adaptation of Max Brooks zombie book. We've seen multiple trailers, presentations and at least one other official poster, now it's time to toss this one into the mix. Alas, there are no zombies, but there is lots of smoke. And zombie destruction. But I want to see more zombies! For all the concepts they can play with here, I'm surprised we're getting such lackluster poster art.

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.
