The latest clip from Marc Forster’s zombie epic, World War Z, has just dropped, and its a good one. The scene in question has already been seen in the trailer, but here we see it in its entirety, and thankfully it stops where it does.
It see’s Brad Pitt with his family stuck in a traffic jam, and they begin to panic as helicopters fly over head, and a police bike races past, smashing the car mirror. The build up of suspense and tension is well crafted, and gives a very strong hint that this film just might actually deliver. After all the troubles during production, I really hope that World War Z turns out good, and so far the early word from those that have seen it is that yes, it is very good indeed!
The film is based on the novel written by Max Brooks, and the screenplay was written by Matthew Michael Carnahan and J. Michael Stracynski and the film stars Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Elyes Gabel and Julia Levy-Boeken. Brad Pitt’s own production company Plan B are involved in this epic tale of the greatest Zombie war the world has ever known. Filming in locations all over the world, the film will take place ten years after the war and survivors are asked to re-live their accounts of what happened to them.
World War Z, directed by Marc Forster, is due to arrive in UK cinemas June 21st 2013.
The story is said to revolve around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen. The plot is a bit interesting because the Max Brooks best-selling novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War which the movie is based on, dealt with the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. Hopefully this approach will work for the film.
