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.
