Paramount has released a new featurette for director Marc Forster’s upcoming post-apocalypse zombie action flick World War Z. The film centers around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) traveling the world in a race against time to stop a global zombie outbreak that is threatening to eradicate humanity itself.
There’s a strange dichotomy in my anticipation for this film. The more I read about what Forster and co. are trying to do the more excited I get, but the more footage I see the more apprehensive I become. Is this an issue of the marketing department dropping the ball or people being well-trained by PR staff? Either way, at least they got an awesome tagline for the film: “Mother Nature is a serial killer; no one’s better.”
The cast includes Mireille Enos , Daniella Kertesz , James Badge Dale and Matthew Fox.
The story revolves 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.
