The trailer from the highly anticipated zombie film starring Brad Pitt and based on the novel of the same name by Max Brooks debuted its trailer today to the delight of fans. Directed by Marc Forster and written by Matthew Michael Carnahan, the film is expected in theaters on June 21, 2013.

World War Z, the novel, is focused on stories from the zombie apocalypse and how humanity copes or unravels with this event. As to how much the movie will hew to its source material I cannot judge. Nonetheless, the zombie genre shows no signs of slowing down and, to amp up the terror, it seems the zombies in World War Z aren’t of the slow variety either. While not waiting with bated breath for a definitive zombie flick, I’m nonetheless excited to see it in the theater.
