'World War Z' Roundup: Extended Clip, Max Brooks Talks About Adaptation Plus... a Zombie Cat?

It's time to obey Zombieland rule number 29 (The Buddy System) and head out to your local theater to catch Brad Pitt and running zombies in World War Z. As we've been doing all summer movie season, we've got a bunch of WWZ stuff for you below to enhance your zombie-evading experience.

Let's get things started with this excellent extended clip which arrived online earlier this week.

We've got another clip for you here, this one featuring Pitt and a bearded James Badge Dale (the Extremis soldier from Iron Man 3) as soldiers inquire about how things are looking "back home." Pitt's response: "No place is doing well."

Take a look at special-edition posters created by artists (in order below) Marko Manev (the first two), David MoscatiAdam RabalisMarie Bergeron, Tracie Ching, Midnight MarauderChris Garofolo and Matt Ferguson (final three) for World War Z.

Check out their posters below, courtesy of Blurppy. Click on each for a larger version.






Take a quick peek behind the scenes in this first-look featurette, including an interview with director Marc Forester.

The big-budget effects and all are fine, but what does the author of the book, Max Brooks, think about the film? Here is a clip from an interview he did at Mansfield University about the adaptation and how he was shut out of the creative process.

Fans have had some fun with the massive numbers of zombies piling on top of one another in the posters. Here, we find a zombie cat (from HumorTrain) and an alternate meaning for the abbreviation WWZ (Where's Waldo Zombie, from Tumblr).

Finally, if World War Z gets you excited to watch more zombie movies, our sister site Movies.com compiled a few that you probably haven't seen. If you're new to the zombie genre, check out the site's Zombie Movie Guide.
