Zombie fans are anxiously awaiting the big screen adaptation of the popular Max Brooks zombie fiction, "World War Z." Viewers watching the Super Bowl on February 3 were able to take a look at the first trailer for the movie, which is scheduled for release June 21.
The original novel was presented as an "oral history of the zombie war" and followed a journalist who collected the stories of survivors from the zombie war. The movie adaptation follows Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), a U.N. employee who tries to stop a zombie pandemic.
The first trailer for "World War Z" have played at movie theaters but on television, Super Bowl Sunday brought us our first peek at 30 seconds from the movie.
A longer trailer takes up more than two minutes but one thing that has been chattered across the web is that book fans wonder how the movie will compare. Based upon the first trailer, the makers of "World War Z" the movie have not followed the format of the book but instead have created a zombie movie that may have elements from the original book.
What do you think? If you have read the book, how do you feel about the movie and the trailer that has already been released? If you haven't read the book, do you plan to do so and if so will you read it before or after seeing the movie?
