‘World War Z’ Trailer: Brad Pitt Battles Zombies, Protects His Family
And from the trailer, there is definitely scale to the mayhem, though it seems much of the zombie horde was created by the computer program MASSIVE. Which also likely means that this zombie apocalypse will come with a PG-13 rating. But that’s no surprise for a big summer movie.
And if the trailer has a hook it’s that Brad Pitt, movie star, has never really done a movie like this before. Sure, he’s done big budget movies, and some action (like ‘Mr. And Mrs. Smith’) but this seems like a part that would normally be played by someone like Will Smith, or – for that matter – Charlton Heston.
