Paramount Pictures has released a large batch of high-resolution images from director Marc Forsterâ€™s large-scale zombie pic World War Z.Â The film starsÂ Brad PittÂ 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.Â The picâ€™s production troubles have not exactly been a secret, but Pitt has been doing everything he can to promote the film so one assumes heâ€™s happy with the finished product.Â The prospect of crafting a globe-trotting horror film on a tentpole scale still intrigues me, so hereâ€™s hoping everything came together in the end.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images.Â The film also stars Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, David Morse, and Daniella Kertesz.Â World War Z opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on June 21st.
