While you mull over whether to buy a ticket or a “mega ticket” to World War Z, Paramount has released a new clip from the movie. The film stars Brad Pitt as a United Nations employee who traverses the globe in a race to stop a growing zombie pandemic that threatens to put an end to humanity. But before he can save humanity, our hero first has to save his family, and in the event of a zombie apocalypse, helicopters are a sound way to travel (contrary to what this teaser poster would have us believe).
Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also stars Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, David Morse, and Daniella Kertesz. World War Z opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on Friday.
Like a lot of you guys, Limited Paper’s intrigued to get a look at Marc Forster’s World War Z, the big-budget, epic-scale, Brad Pitt-starring adaptation of the beloved Max Brooks novel. But whereas everyone else has been asking questions like “How’s the CGI on the zombies?” or “How faithful is the film to the book?”, our primary concern is this: “Will there be World War Z posters?”
There will, in fact, be World War Z posters, and we’ve got the images and specs direct from the people at Paramount to prove it. Wanna see the prints that artists Marko Manev, David Moscati, Marie Bergeron, Matt Ferguson, and Chris Garofolo created in anticipation of the film’s June 21st release? Wanna know where to get ‘em, and how some very cool World War Z fan are is involved? Answers await you after the jump, folks.
You could buy a regular ticket when you go to see Brad Pitt in Marc Forster’s World War Z, or if you’re lucky enough to live in one of five select cities, you’ll have the option of buying a “mega ticket.” Included in that option is “one adult ticket to an advance RealD 3D showing of “WORLD WAR Z” at participating theaters on Wednesday, June 19th at 7:30 p.m. and a small popcorn, one HD digital copy of the movie when it becomes available*, one pair of “WORLD WAR Z” collector’s custom RealD 3D glasses, and one official full-size limited-edition movie poster, while supplies last.” Hit the jump for full details.
Paramount Pictures has released a large batch of high-resolution images from director Marc Forster’s large-scale zombie pic World War Z. The film stars Brad Pitt as a United Nations employee who traverses the globe in a race to stop a growing zombie pandemic that threatens to put an end to humanity. The pic’s production troubles have not exactly been a secret, but Pitt has been doing everything he can to promote the film so one assumes he’s happy with the finished product. The prospect of crafting a globe-trotting horror film on a tentpole scale still intrigues me, so here’s hoping everything came together in the end.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. The film also stars Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, David Morse, and Daniella Kertesz. World War Z opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on June 21st.

World War Z has become a question mark. It’s loosely based on a best-selling novel of the same name, stars Brad Pitt, and has zombies, which is a fairly popular disaster trope. On the other hand, there were the production problems that managed to become public, and the studio spent more money to get the film back on track. So has the problem been solved? I hope so. While I’ve been a bit bummed that we haven’t gotten to a good look at the zombies in the trailers or posters, World War Z has the advantage of taking a zombie flick to a global setting, which is where the genre really hasn’t gone before. It’s still a question, but we’re giving you a chance to find out the answer early.
I’m pleased to announce that we’re giving away 15 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of World War Z. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film also stars Mireille Enos, Matthew Fox, James Badge Dale, and David Morse. World War Z opens in 3D on June 21st.
Check out two new clips full of good advice from the following films:
- World War Z – This new clip from director Marc Forster’s adaptation of the Max Brooks novel features an officer giving some good advice to Brad Pitt and his family about why one should always remain with their vehicle during the zombie apocalypse.
- The Kings of Summer – There are more law enforcement types to be found in this red-band clip from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ film, though star Nick Offerman handles their advice a bit differently.

There’s more than one way to end a world. Here are two examples:
- World War Z – This new clip from director Marc Forster’s adaptation of the Max Brooks novel explains why Brad Pitt’s character is needed to help stop the epidemic, although it will require him leaving his family.
- This Is the End – A new red-band TV spot highlights the beginning, middle and end of the apocalyptic tale starring James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Danny McBride. It’s a bit spoilery so steer clear if you’re not into that.

Today, we have a collection of banners from three upcoming films. First up, four new banners for World War Z highlight the “World” part of the title as we see major cities burn. If nothing else, the zombie film will have the distinction of not having the protagonist (Brad Pitt) confined to one location, and that global perspective is one of the best aspects of the book. Moving on, Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) get the graffiti treatment in new banner for Kick-Ass 2. Finally, four banners have been released for Hayao Miyazaki‘s upcoming film, The Wind Rises. The movie centers on Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed the Zero Fighter used by Japanese pilots in World War II.
Hit the jump to check out the banners. World War Z opens in 3D on June 21st. Kick-Ass 2 opens on August 16th. The Wind Rises opens in Japan on July 20th, but currently has no U.S. distribution.
New posters have been released for World War Z, Girl Most Likely, and Getaway. The international poster for World War Z gives us a look at Mireille Enos (who plays the wife of Brad Pitt‘s character) and their two daughters not really showing a lot of panic as the stampeding zombie horde closes in behind them. If anything, it looks like one of the daughters has a tummy-ache. Moving on to the international poster for Girl Most Likely (formerly Imogene), it’s about as lazy as posters get, which is fine since the film follows suit with its forced quirky humor. Finally, there’s the teaser poster for Getaway, which tells you nothing about the movie other than it stars Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez getting away in a car. I would be more interested if the garage door slightly opened to reveal a rascal scooter.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. World War Z opens in 3D on June 21st. Girl Most Likely opens on July 19th. Getaway opens August 30th.
New posters have been released for World War Z, Pacific Rim, and The Conjuring. Starting with World War Z, Paramount seems determined to make sure that no zombies are shown in the marketing beyond a faceless hoard. This new poster also copies the previous one, and so we’re stuck with a handsome guy looking over devastation. Is that enough to get people interested? Moving on to Pacific Rim, it’s a giant robot about to take a nasty-looking blade to a giant monster. It’s easy to understand, and easy to like. Finally, the UK poster for The Conjuring is sadly generic and rests on the power of a creepy doll. This could be used for countless horror movies.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. World War Z opens in 3D on June 21st. Pacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th. The Conjuring opens July 19th.
From director Shane Black, Iron Man 3 has certainly gotten the blockbuster movie season off to a pretty incredible start. This time out, brilliant billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), aka Iron Man, faces a terrifying enemy, known as The Mandarin (Sir Ben Kingsley), whose reach knows no bounds, and he must rely on his own instincts to protect those that he loves.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor James Badge Dale, who plays Extremis agent and all-around bad-ass Eric Savin, talked about how he came to be a part of the film, having to read pages from a cop movie for his audition, due to secrecy, how he finally gut a full script after negotiations for the role were finished, what it means to him to get to be a part of the Iron Man franchise, how he viewed Savin, and what he wanted to bring to the character’s physicality. He also talked about his roles in two more upcoming blockbusters, World War Z with Brad Pitt and The Lone Ranger with Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, and the great experiences he had on each. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
Intrepid reporter Samantha Cheirif is currently snapping some movie marketing images from the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. We hope to have more images in the coming days, but for now we have looks at international posters for World War Z, The Lone Ranger, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Hercules 3D, Despicable Me 2 and more. There are also quite a few promos for films that might not even be on your radar yet, so it’s definitely worth a look.
The 2013 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15th to May 26th. Hit the jump to check out the images.
