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?
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.

Ok I love zombies but man, why do they always have to show explosions and destroyed building, they're zombies for gods sake not transformers.

You'd be amazed at how fast things go boom if the machinery of civilization is left untended.

Yeah I know what you mean I read similar things in the book Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond a long time ago, It doesn't talk about zombies but I mean even in its normal/organized state humanity is volatile and self destructive, but I'm not sure if zombies would be considered humanity, I think they would be, but they would be classified as infected population just like if there was a worldwide flu outbreak. Nice comment man! The thing about zombies though is that even though they are just infected humans(in most modern interpretations) and they consume they never seem to fully get full stomachs or get affected by hunger, I think the only movie I have successfully do that is 28 Weeks later where the infected die after 28 weeks due to lack of food. Then again it's just a movie, the point of it is to enjoy it, analyzing it is just an extra bit of fun.

Everybody knows the worst aspect of zombies is the fact that they are all serial arsonists.

Was wondering the same thing, does everybody just spontaneously light everything on fire when they see zombies?

Too bad those posters aren't in hi-res, would have liked one of them as a wallpaper. WWZ even has a new game, coming out tomorrow, may 30th. It was intended for PC, but is on mobile/tablet now. Ofc, it looks like shit. Go play Left4Dead 1 and/or 2 instead.
