It’s the Super Bowl over in the States this Sunday, which means that Hollywood will be seizing the opportunity to showcase this year’ssummer blockbusters by snapping up extortionately-priced advertising space. While we’ll have to wait until Sunday for sneak peeks at the likes of The Lone Ranger, The Fast and the Furious 6, Oz: The Great and Powerful, Star Trek Into Darkness and Iron Man 3, Paramount Pictures has decided to debut its 30-second TV spot for the upcoming Brad Pitt zombie epic World War Z.
Based upon Max Brooks’ 2006 novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, the big-budget adaptation is directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) and sees Brad Pitt starring as a U.N. employee attempting to prevent a global catastrophe as a zombie pandemic spreads across the globe. Also featuring in the cast are Mireille Enos (The Killing), James Badge Dale (Iron Man 3), Elyes Gabel (Game of Thrones), Matthew Fox (Lost), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and David Morse (The Hurt Locker).
World War Z is due for release on June 21st.
