'World War Z' Trailer: Brad Pitt Tries to Save His Family and the World From Zombies (Video)

Paramount’s action-thriller opens in theaters on June 21.

Just a few hours after a new poster for World War Z, Marc Forster’s zombie action-thriller, hit the web, a new trailer has surfaced, giving us more background on Brad Pitt’s character, who is tasked with finding a solution to the zombie infestation.

Pitt’s character is a family man with a wife (Mireille Enos) and two kids, who goes from cooking breakfast with his family to escaping from extremely fast-moving zombies on a helicopter and trying to find his way into Russia, where a supposed solution could exist.

“Life as we know it will come to an end in 90 days,” says one military official in the new clip.

The trailer also highlights plenty of high-flying action, including zombies running for the helicopter, more zombies overturning a bus, and an airplane blowing apart in mid-air.

The Paramount film is from a script by Matthew Michael Carnahan, who adapted the book by Max Brooks.

Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse also star in World War Z, which hits theaters June 21.
