A new poster has been released for Marc Forster‘s World War Z. Per the brief official synopsis, “The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.” What is the word missing from that sentence? If you said, “Zombie”, you win a lifetime supply of shotguns. Like we saw in the trailer, World War Z is big on selling zombies as a horde rather than gruesome individuals, which they can’t really get away with since it’s a PG-13 movie. I’m sure audience can figure out that it’s a zombie pandemic, but these are zombies we’re not used to seeing: pile-zombies. Fear the pile.
