Limited Paper: WORLD WAR Z Invades Poster World with New Artwork from Marko Manev, David Moscati, Matt Ferguson, Chris Garofalo and Marie Bergeron

     June 14, 2013


Like a lot of you guys, Limited Paper’s intrigued to get a look at Marc Forster’s World War Z, the  big-budget, epic-scale, Brad Pitt-starring adaptation of the beloved Max Brooks novel.  But whereas everyone else has been asking questions like “How’s the CGI on the zombies?” or “How faithful is the film to the book?”, our primary concern is this:  “Will there be World War Z posters?”

There will, in fact, be World War Z posters, and we’ve got the images and specs direct from the people at Paramount to prove it.  Wanna see the prints that artists Marko Manev, David Moscati, Marie Bergeron, Matt Ferguson, and Chris Garofolo created in anticipation of the film’s June 21st release?  Wanna know where to get ‘em, and how some very cool World War Z fan are is involved?  Answers await you after the jump, folks.

We’ve been following the updates surrounding Paramount Pictures and director Marc Forster’s World War Z for just under two years now (filming began in July of 2011), and for those of us with a taste for epic-scale, zombie-flavored mayhem, it’s been quite a wait.  The good news is, the film’s release is just days away, but the even- better news is that the early word on the film has been much stronger than some were expecting following the film’s colorful production history.

We’re eager to get our own look at the film, but while we’re waiting, we thought we’d take a look at the sprawling World War Z poster operation that Paramount Pictures is about to unleash.  Based on the number of posters, artists, and companies they’ve enlisted to make this thing come together, it seems that Paramount is keeping with the film’s epic scale.

Let’s start with the half dozen prints created by artists Chris Garofalo, Matt Ferguson, Marie Bergeron, David Moscati, and Marko Manev.  After being challenged by to create their own posters based on the film, each artist produced the following pieces:


  • Poster by David Moscati



  • Posters by Matt Ferguson


  • Poster by Marie Bergeron


  • Poster by Marko Manev


  • Poster by Chris Garofalo

And this is just the tip of the iceberg:  in addition to the prints above, Paramount’s also partnered up with Bioworld to release limited edition graphic t-shirts featuring fan art based on World War Z via Hot Topic; limited edition World War Z collector prints will be given away at participating theaters (including Regal, Cinemark, AMC, and Arclight) on the night of June 21st, when the film hits theaters; and—last but not least—the folks at Pyramid International are releasing “high-end collectible posters” based on the film that will be made available exclusively through and starting June 20th.  Here’s the specs on those:

  • World War Z collectible posters, via Pyramid International
  • 24×32” offset lithograph print on 100 pound gloss cover paper
  • $11.99 limited edition of 1,000
  • Each poster comes with a certificate of authenticity

Phew.  So, let’s recap:  six new posters from a quintet of pro artists who produced their prints based on a challenge;  t-shirts featuring fan artwork being sold via Hot Topic;  free posters on the film’s opening night at a number of popular theater chains; and a run of 1,000 posters being sold via and starting June 20th.  What do you think, folks?  Has Paramount got their bases covered here, or what?

It’ll be interesting to see some of these other posters and images once they’re revealed, eh?  Stay tuned for more on World War Z and the goings-on in Poster World right here at  And as always: if you’re an artist or gallery with artwork you’d like to see featured on Limited Paper (or if you’re just some lucky bastard who happened to overhear a bit of poster-related gossip while standing in the bushes outside Martin Ansin’s house) we wanna hear from you!  Email Limited Paper directly at, and be sure that you’re following us on Twitter via @LimitedPaper for ongoing commentary, news updates, giveaways, and more!
