Paramount has released a new trailer for director Marc Forster’s (Quantum of Solace) zombie apocalypse film 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. This trailer does a better job at humanizing Pitt’s character as a family man as well as hinting at the plot arc he’ll have to follow. While the CG still looks a bit suspect, the zombie hordes of World War Z have proven to be not only resilient but rather resourceful in getting around.
