The highly anticipated film adaptation of the Max Brooks novel World War Z is finally here and it looks disappointing. Playing the role of Gerry Lane, a UN ambassador, Pitt sees society collapse around him when zombies overrun cities around the world in what will later be called World War Z, war of the zombies.
Why does it seem like they paid no attention to the plot of the book though? There are zombies shown in this trailer who run fast. And I mean really, really fast. This looks like a disaster film with bloodthirsty zombies who simply rampage throught the streets. It's a feeding frenzy that no human could possibly run away from. Perhaps this new direction taken by the film might turn out to be a compelling watch. Let's wait and see.
In the meantime, check out the trailer which shows Brad Pitt running away from a gazillion zombies.
This action-packed blockbuster will hit theatres in summer next year.
