A new poster for director Marc Forster’s zombie apocalypse drama World War Z has landed online. 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 new poster highlights the sheer enormity of the pandemic, giving the audience a good idea of the epic scope of the film. Steve recently saw some extended footage from the pic and sat down with Forster for an interview, and the filmmaker said that more than a zombie film, he wanted to make a global film about a global crisis. This poster certainly does a nice job of highlighting that aspect, and it’ll be interesting to see just how big the full film goes.
