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.
Here’s the official synopsis for World War Z:
The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.
Here’s the official synopsis for Kick-Ass 2:
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.
Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
