One of the key elements contributing to the success of Brad Pitt's summer blockbuster World War Z was the emotional, human element amid the wild zombie pandemic. The unrated cut of the movie arrives on Blu-ray September 17, and we have an exclusive clip from the bonus features!
In World War Z, Brad plays a family man and United Nations employee who faces a deadly zombie pandemic, challenged to stop the menace and protect his loved ones. But in order to save the world, he has to leave his family behind...
Brad also produced the film, directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), and of the unrated director's cut, he says, "I'm really excited for fans to see the new unrated version of World War Z on Blu-ray. We were thrilled with the audience response to the film in theaters and wanted to give viewers even more of the action and intensity that they loved when they watch the film at home."
Bonus features on the World War Z Blu-ray include the behind-the-scenes featurettes Origins (the filmmakers discuss collaborating with Brad to create a zombie film the likes of which have never been seen); Looking to Science (explore the scientific realities of zombie behavior in nature and learn more about zombies in literature and film); and the four-part WWZ: Production, which goes on set and dissects key scenes from the film, from the breathtaking first attack in Philadelphia and the dramatic escape in South Korea to the epic scene in Jerusalem and the final confrontation between Gerry and the zombies.
