World War Z Poster

Though the blockbuster zombie thriller World War Z has seen its fair share of development issues on its way to the big screen, we're still hoping that it will turn out better than the behind-the-scenes drama would indicate. So far we've seen a teaser, a full trailer, a Super Bowl TV spot, and I found out at a special WWZ event we attended last week in Los Angeles that the new trailer will be out officially tonight at midnight PST - so check back then. I'll have a full report on that event soon, but in the meantime Paramount has released a new poster for the movie that is actually just as cool as some of these fan made efforts. Check it out below!

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.

This just might possibly be, the worst movie poster that I have ever seen.

If Romero were dead I'm sure he'll turn on his grave.

Because I don’t think he ever imagine the zombie horror genre he help create would get to the point that Hollywood feels they need to CGI the equivalent of zombie tsunami that attacks army helicopters to draw in audiences. That’s why. I don’t get it, Walking Dead is doing just fine keeping to the formula, so did the book for that matter, so why stray away from it so far for the movie.

Fair enough. The book was great. This is NOT it

I guess I don't know zombie movies like I thought, what's so bad about the poster? The effects of the movie sadly reminds a me of I Am Legend, but the poster looks cool to me.

Are these zombies or a cartoon swarm of bees/school of fish?

This poster makes no sense at all. Are the zombies piling up vehicles to get to the helicopter? Why is the helicopter just hanging around as this happens? Is there anything about this movie that isn't a complete mess?

I don't understand why this is such a bad poster.. It is great from a marketing standpoint. It shows how desperate the zombies will be to get to human survivors, as well as having a pleasing contrast of colors to the eyes. The whole point of movie posters is to get the attention of people and this does just that. To the people saying it's a tsunami of zombies, it's pretty clear they are climbing up wreckage. And if you want to argue the realism of a car balancing like that could you please take a step back and remember what this movie is about? I'm just excited to see one of my favorite books brought to the big screen.. Don't take stuff so seriously people, Sheesh.

Oone of your favorite books? have you seen the trailer? its literally nothing like the book at all who ever made this film should be ashamed of themselves for even putting the title of the book in this atrocity of a film.

Zombies my @ss, they are more like army of ant mutants. The Walking Dead has got the real zombies.
