It’s the year that cute little cuddly bears help us find the one missing piece we have in our lives during these dark and dreary times. Disney has released the first teaser trailer for Christopher Robin, their live-action take on Winnie the Pooh.

But instead of making just another live-action adaptation of their animated classic, the studio will put a timeless/Hook spin on the property by aging the title character. In the film, Robin is weighed down by the responsibilities of being an adult with a family to provide for and a thankless job, leading to him being reunited with his childhood toy.

World War Z PosterWorld War Z
Director: Marc Forster
Writer(s): Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard, Damon Lindelof
Cast: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox, David Morse
Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 116 Minutes
Release Date: June 21, 2013

Directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), World War Z is based on Max Brooks‘ 2006 novel, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War.

The film stars Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a retired United Nations employee who must travel the world to find a way to stop the zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and collapsing governments.

As a novel, World War Z exists as a collection of individual accounts, wherein the author assumes the role of a member of the United Nations Postwar Commission one decade after the Zombie War. Passages record a decade-long war against zombies, as experienced by people of various nationalities. Personal accounts also describe the religious, geo-political, and environmental changes that resulted from the Zombie War.

As a film, World War Z focuses on the zombies themselves, human bodies reanimated by an incurable virus, devoid of intelligence and craving living flesh – and immortal unless the brain is destroyed, of course. After securing his wife (Mireille Enos) and kids on an aircraft carrier, Pitt’s character traverses the globe in search of a cure for the rabies-like infection that turns humans into ol’ Zeke.

World War Z Image

The first trailer for Marc Forster‘s adaptation of the Max Brooks book World War Z looked pretty promising…until the zombies showed up, that is. Ultra-fast, heavily CGI, and moving as one like a pack of insects or a hungry wave of water, these zombies simply looked unappealing.

Now comes a new look at the movie, a 30-second TV spot that will air this Sunday during the Super Bowl.

Will this second peek at World War Z make you more excited to see it or less? Only one way to find out! Proceed, and may you find the answers that you seek.

Brad Pitt in World War Z

With all that has happened to Marc Forster’s adaptation of Max BrooksWorld War Z, you might think that the zombie apocalypse actually happened. For one thing, the film, which stars Brad Pitt, went through many rewrites and reshoot, by the time the film actually entered the extensive reshooting phase, which forced the film to push back its original release date, many deemed the film dead on arrival.

So a new trailer has arrived and you can judge for yourself if the film was worth the wait, but from what I have been hearing, the film is a complete departure from the Brooks’ novel, and that is sure to upset fans of the book. Check it out below.

The third and final act of Marc Forster’s adaptation of the Max Brooks novel, World War Z, seems to be littered with problems of all kinds. So many problems are infecting this film, that they had to bring Damon Lindelof to pen the rewrites.

Lindelof, however, was unable to complete the task, and now the job of completing the third and final act of the film is in the hands of Cloverfield and Lost writer and Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director, Drew Goddard.

Back in 2008, a film adaptation of the zombie survival novel World War Z was quickly gaining steam. J. Michael Straczynski was writing the script and Marc Forster was brought on to direct with hopes of a release some time in 2010, which clearly has not worked out so well. The movie was also moving under Brad Pitt‘s Plan B Entertainment, and many rumors had Pitt set to star in the adaptation as well.

Now comes word out of the Comic Con scene that the movie is still very much happening, and Pitt has gone from rumored star to officially attached to star. MTV was able to talk to the novel’s author and son of Mel Brooks, Max Brooks, who received a call sharing the good news with him.
