Our brother site, ComingSoon.net, attended a Paramount presentation and got a sneak peek at a forthcoming trailer for the anticipated adaptation of World War Z! Read on for the goods…
“It begins with Brad Pitt’s character sitting in traffic with his family. They’re busy playing a game when a cop bashes on their window in a panic. Standing near the driver side window, the cop begs Pitt to stay in his vehicle and, soon thereafter, is pummeled by a bus careening out of control. An explosion erupts and a mass of people race down the city streets. Pitt and his family hop into an abandoned RV and we get a glimpse of the world in madness.
Beyond an unusual pair of eyes, we don’t get a good look at World War Z‘s zombies, but the measures the uninfected take to reach safety might further confirm what last year’s set footage revealed – that these zombies can run.
In the trailer, gigantic hordes of people are scrambling for dear life. They’re not just pushing and shoving each other out of the way, rather climbing on top of each other and manically hanging onto a hovering helicopter.
In one of the trailer’s final shots, there’s a mountain of people trying to climb over a wall that must be hundreds of wriggling bodies high. The material is dark and downright horrifying, not only showing what could happen should the undead invade on a physical level, but also reflecting the societal meltdown that would ensue, and the pure chaos we’d be left with.
World War Z was certainly the crown jewel of the presentation and, based on the footage, looks to be well worth the wait.”
The film hits theaters June 21, 2013.
