The first trailer for the zombie apocalypse drama World War Z is set to debut later today, but Paramount has gotten a jump on things and released the first official image of Brad Pitt from the film.  The adaptation of the Max Brooks zombie novel has gone through a few rough patches in production, with the release date pushed from this coming December to next summer and the third act having been rewritten by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and reshot after production had already wrapped.  We got a very brief preview of the trailer the other day that promised a terrifying shit ton of zombies, so hopefully the full film delivers when all is said and done.

Hit the jump to take a look at the image, and check back here on Collider later today to watch the first trailer.  Directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), the film also stars Anthony Mackie, Matthew Fox, Mireille Enos, and James Badge DaleWorld War Z opens on June 21st, 2013.
