New World War Z Clip Online
Brad Pitt brings hard truth

13 June 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Paramount

South Korea. A military transport plane touches down and a weary Brad Pitt is shuffled into the relative safety of a hangar. He’s asked by the worried, uniformed troops there about how their various hometowns are doing. “Guys, I’ll be honest with you,” he says. “I don’t know of any place back home that’s doing very well…” Yes, the test screenings for World War Z were a right old nightm… Sorry, no, we’re being told this is the new clip from the film. Which would also explain the grim tone. 

Still, the buzz on this one has been turning around since it screened in full and the reviews have not been the bile dump many were expecting given the tough production history.

Adapted  very, very loosely from Max Brooks’ stonking book, World War Z finds Pitt as Gerry Lane, a UN trouble-shooter pressed into action when a mysterious viral outbreak starts causing waves of zombies to swarm across the world. While he really just wants to keep his wife (Mireille Enos) and kids safe, humanity at large needs his assistance. So he heads out on a globetrotting mission to get to the bottom of it all.

With Marc Forster calling the shots and James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox, David Morse, Peter Capaldi, Elyes Gabel and Moritz Bleibtreu among the cast, World War Z invades our cinemas on June 21. One week and counting, folks…

RE: YES
i personally dont think itll be that good! how can they make a zombie film a 12A, the story looks a bit blah as well and with all the problems they have had with re shooting and script issues etc i hold reservations about this one More

Marc Forster made a balls of Quantum of Solace and this film needed extensive reshoots. Don't know how this guy keeps getting hired to direct huge projects when he screws up so often. More

Looking forward to this quite a bit. I think the zombie genre is definitely an acquired one and not all acquire a taste for it; I can understand why people may dislike this film which is why I won't be put off by the expected poor critical reception it's going to be getting More
