Watch the New Trailer for <i>World War Z</i>

As its June 21 release date approaches, Paramount has released the latest trailer for its Brad Pitt-led zombie film World War Z. Unlike the first trailer, which mostly consisted of a single scene from the movie, this one shows more of a broad outline, with Pitt flying his family to safety in the midst of a zombie apocalypse and then hopping across the world to try to preserve the last of humanity.

Based on the best-selling book by Max Brooks (son of famed comedy writer/director Mel Brooks), World War Z comes to theaters amidst reports of trouble on set between Brad Pitt and director Marc Forster as well as a wealth of reshoots and rewrites. The original book eschewed a traditional narrative structure in favor of a Studs Terkel-type oral report from various citizens regarding their experiences with the zombie invasion.
