Brad Pitt Hunts Zombies in First 'World War Z' Tease

The first snippets of footage from a World War Z trailer teased on Entertainment Tonight, setting up the debut of the full trailer on Thursday, Nov. 8. We’ve got your peek at the rapidly-edited clip below. 

Marc Forster helms the post-apocalyptic zombie thriller, which casts Brad Pitt as mankind’s savior, who must rise up and fend off an undead army when a pandemic unleashes an army of brain-craving creatures. The story’s based on Max Brooks’ best-selling novel, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, which looks back on a battle to save our planet. It’s unclear if Forster’s film will retain the flashback mode of the narrative or simply tell a straight, no-nonsense zombie-war thriller. 
 
All we know about World War Z at this point is that the film suffered some difficult production schedules, with Pitt and his cast mates reportedly having to return for massive reshoots a few months back (perhaps to fix an ending that wasn’t working all that well). We’re anxious to see the full trailer, to give us a better look at Forster’s zombies. But for now, Pitt’s back in heroic form, and the undead are in for a world of hurt.
 

 
UPDATE: Since unveiling the first tease of footage for Z, Paramount also has released a stark poster for the film, which reaches theaters on June 21, 2013. We have the poster for you below:
