World War Z, the novel by Max Brooks, is actually pretty fascinating. Set entirely after the end of a zombie infestation, the entire book is structured as a fake oral history, interviews with citizens, military personnel, and government officials painting the picture of what it was like to live in the time of zombies. We've known for quite a while that the movie version, directed by Marc Foster and starring Brad Pitt, would be going in a different direction, but watching the first trailer you begin to wonder why they used the title at all.

The preview is online over at Apple and, honestly, it looks like any other zombie movie you've seen - only with more CGI hordes and less of individual members of the walking dead. Perhaps they are just hoping people will see Pitt's face and not care. See for yourself below and head over to the source to see it in HD.

Scripted by Matthew Michael Carnahan and Damon Lindelof, the new movie stars Pitt as Gerry Lane, a U.N. employee who finds himself traveling around the world to try and discover the origin of a zombie plague and stop it before it takes over the world. The supporting cast - which wasn't featured too much in the trailer - includes Matthew Fox, David Morse, James Badge Dale, and Mireille Enos. To learn more about World War Z - and the trouble its had making its way to theaters - head on over to our Blend Film Database. And look for the movie when Paramount Pictures releases it on June 21, 2013.
