"We've lost the East Coast." Get read to be… underwhelmed. This might already take the award for most unexciting Super Bowl TV spot yet, and we have barely seen the rest of them. Paramount has debuted a 30-second TV spot in high def on Apple for their World War Z adaptation of Max Brooks' zombie book, starring Brad Pitt. We've already seen one trailer for this and it has many folks nervous about how it's going to turn out, not to mention the reshoots and others issues they've been trying to cover up. There's a bit of new footage, but not much. I think the dialogue in the spot sums it up: "What is this?!" "We don't know…"
Watch the full 30-second Super Bowl spot for Marc Forster's World War Z, in high def from Apple:
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 this summer, starting June 21st, 2013, after being delayed from December last year. See the first trailer. Any better?
