World War Z: First Impressions & Marc Forster on the Zombie Epic

The climate has certainly shifted, however, and “zombies” today mean dollar signs. Flesh-eating – once an on-screen taboo – is pretty accepted these days and the undead no longer shoulder any sort of stigma. There is no bigger example of this than the existence of the largest studio-funded zombie project ever: World War Z. Based on the novel by Max Brooks and starring Brad Pitt (also wielding a producer credit), the film is a globe-trotting adventure set in the middle of a zombie outbreak and ShockTillYouDrop.com received a 20-minute preview of the Marc Forster-directed film.
