Paramount has released the first official trailer for Marc Forster’s World War Z. The story, based on the novel by Max Brooks, follows UN bureaucrat Gerard Lane (Brad Pitt) who is racing against time and fate, as he travels the world trying to stop the outbreak of a deadly Zombie pandemic.
The graphic novel followed Gerard Lane’s interviews which document a decade-long war against zombies from the view point of many different people of various nationalities, but it seems changes have been made to make Pitt’s character more involved in the action. In the book the zombies are slow, lumbering beings that cannot move quickly, but here they all seem to be active and mobile.
As well as Pitt, the movie stars Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse, and will invade screens on June 21, 2013.
