Movie Preview: Brad Pitt in World War Z

Through a series of oral interviews, Brooks, as an agent of the United Nations Postwar Commission, describes the history of World War Z. Although the origin of the zombie pandemic is unknown, the story begins in China where a young boy becomes the pandemic’s “patient zero” —(implied not the first victim chronologically), at which the Chinese government attempts to contain the infection and concocts a crisis involving Taiwan to mask their activities. The infection is spread to other countries by the black market organ trade and by refugees, before an outbreak brings the plague to public attention.

As the infection spreads, Israel initiates a nationwide quarantine and closes its borders to everyone except uninfected Jews and Palestinians, putting down an ultra-Orthodox uprising. Pakistan and Iran destroy each other in a nuclear war after the Iranian government attempts to stem the flow of refugees fleeing through Pakistan. The US does little to prepare because it is overly confident in its ability to suppress any threat. Although special forces teams contain initial outbreaks, a widespread effort never starts as the nation is deprived of political will by several brushfire wars, and because a rabies vaccine, marketed as effective, creates a false sense of security.

When the world recognizes the true extent of the problem, a Great Panic begins. Following the loss of New York City, the US Army sets up a high-profile defense at Yonkers, New York, from which the US military wields anti-tank weapons and demoralization through wounding; but these prove ineffective against zombies, which “can’t be shocked and awed,” have no self-preservation instincts, and can only be stopped if shot through the head. The soldiers are routed on live television, while other countries suffer similarly disastrous defeats and human civilization nears collapse.

Will this be the Armageddon or end of the world as we know it? Watch how mankind deals with the Zombie pandemic.

The movie will see Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane; Mireille Enos, Karen, Gerry’s wife and mother of their two children; Daniella Kertesz, the female Israeli soldier; James Badge Dale, Captain Speke of the US Army special forces; David Morse, the prisoner Gunter Haffner living in an abandoned jail; Ludi Boeken; Fana Mokoena and Abigail Hargrove, Gerry’s daughter named Rachel.

World War Z is a Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions presentation directed by Marc Forster.
