“World War Z” trailer debut shows zombie apocalypse

The zombie apocalypse is coming, and we are now entering into the time of “World War Z.”

We have to admit, the first trailer for “World War Z” looks much better than the preview snippet we saw the other day. The flick looks like a global crisis movie that just happens to involve zombies, and does give the sense that it’s about the third World War. Leading man Brad Pitt can be seen hopping from one country to the next as he (assumedly) tries to stop the rising tide of undead that are taking over the world.

And they really are a tide. As we commented before, these walkers are only seen as a swarm, with only one shot in the entire trailer showing us a zombie’s face. What’s the deal with these creatures? How did they overrun the nation out of the blue like we saw in the opening sequence in the trailer? And what is there that Pitt’s character can do to stop it?

“World War Z” looks like it could easily venture into cheesy territory, but it also seems like it has the potential to be pretty good. It’s easy to see the bucketloads of money that Paramount Pictures poured into this project, so hopefully it is worth all of our while.

“World War Z” also stars James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz and David Morse. Directed by Marc Forster, it’s due in theaters on June 21, 2013. Here’s the official “World War Z” synopsis:

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.

“World War Z” first footage arrives days before debut trailer

“World War Z” has been delayed and delayed and delayed, but now it is finally close to seeing the light of day. The Brad Pitt-starring zombie apocalypse flick is due in theaters on June 21, 2013, and the project will soon be releasing its first trailer.

You know what that means: It’s time for a teaser for that trailer! In light of the release of the first theatrical trailer on Thursday, ET has a very short look at what the trailer will include. There’s plenty of Pitt here (of course), but there are also quite a few shots of swirling masses of zombies careening around the world. We don’t know if this imagery is supposed to compare the zombie apocalypse to a natural disaster, but that was the first thing we thought of when we saw the shots.

We have known for a while that “World War Z” will feature fast zombies, but we didn’t know quite what that would mean until we saw this video. We’ll have to wait until we see the full trailer to see if that changes our opinion on these zombie swarms, but for now our George Romero-loving hearts are rebelling just a little bit.

It will be interesting to see how “World War Z” strikes the balance between the Pitt family drama and the apocalyptic end-of-the-world scenario. It’s rare to see a zombie flick end happily, but it seems like this could be the first one to do so. It’s safe to say that this is a pretty big departure from the Max Brooks novel that it’s based on.

“World War Z” also stars James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz and David Morse. Directed by Marc Forster, it’s due in theaters on June 21, 2013.

Good Day, Fez!

10 Quotes That Prove Fez is That ’70s Show’s Secret Weapon

Who is Fez? Wilmer Valderrama’s foreign exchange student was a lot of things on That ’70s Show. Loveable. Confusing. Creepy. For eight seasons he operated as the heart of the show, adding a pinch of weird to their ’70s stew. If Kelso was the show’s puppy, and Hyde its attack dog, Fez was the loveable stray you welcomed into your house, and then found humping the vacuum cleaner. Before you catch Fez on That ’70s Show (airing Mondays & Tuesdays from 6-11P on IFC), we thought it was high time to revisit some of his funniest and weirdest lines, from hitting on girls to hitting on himself.


10. He knows how to pamper himself.
