World War Z Superbowl spot

Catch a fresh glimpse of the upcoming World War Z movie, starring Brad Pitt, right here...

We're expecting to see fresh footage from an abundance of big movies over the coming weekend, as studios launch Superbowl spots and trailers for some of the year's big films. Paramount has, perhaps wisely, decided to get ahead of things a little therefore, by releasing the new promo spot for the upcoming World War Z online in advance.

The movie, based on Max Brooks' book, stars Brad Pitt, with Marc Forster directing. The TV spot seems reluctant to show anything close-up resembling a zombie, with instead the focus more on the 'World War' than the 'Z'.

The movie arrives in June. And here's that TV spot...

Looks like it had a touch too much CGI for my liking - not convinced by the Zombie hordes displayed here. And when will trailer makers stop using that Frelling "Bwaaaaammm!" noise for dramatic impact??? Do they think we are idiots, or are they being 'snakes-on-a-plane' ironic?

Wow, spending all that money on this? Why? It shows nothing new, nothing that says, "I know you were skeptical about this movie but check this out," nothing.

I predict that this will be a flop.

And it won't follow the book at all I bet. I agree too much CGI. I know re-creating hundreds of zombies at once would be difficult but they look as bad as the 'zombie vampire' things from I am legend :(

Zombies are not fast.....

Super Bowl or not, still looks sh*t....

It looks alright

There is nothing new in this "superbowl spot".. Still looks like a Resident Evil movie to me. Lots of CGI and a booming soundtrack to carry you through the fact it has no story and no soul. I'll enjoy it briefly, then i'll forget it. :)

I think the zombie film would get real old, real fast if they all stuck to the zombie shuffle, I loved me some old school zombie, but I did love the dawn of the dead remake with the runners, there is enough room for both types me thinks

Yeah, it is pretty cool to have runners..... But it states in the book that zombies are not fast....

I predict this being the final nail in the zombie-genre's coffin...for now at least. They'll be back again in 15-20 years.

...with the following exception: The Walking Dead...which is still amazing.

Hmm literally finished the book today. Think as a standalone Zombie film, it looks good. In association with the book... Terrible

I agree, zombies are not fast you get a detailed description of them in the book they range from ability but they cannot run due to the fact that most of the brain is dead. I'll wait for a budget DVD release to see this.
