Watch: Mother Nature is a Serial Killer in New 'World War Z' Featurette
It's pretty damn impressive that the marketing for World War Z has gotten away with not calling the primary threat in the summer blockbuster "zombies." In fact, I'm willing to bet the filmmakers trained everyone to avoid the word so audiences don't roll their eyes at yet another installment in the horror subgenre. But as we've seen, these infected people chasing Brad Pitt are anything but normal zombies. They're likely not even dead (though fans of the book would know better), and this new international featurette seems to indicate that it's more of an act of nature wiping Earth clean of humanity. Watch below!
Here's the new international featurette for Marc Forster's World War Z from Paramount Pictures:
A UN employee racing against time and fate travels the world trying to stop a growing zombie pandemic.
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.
