First Look at World War Z

The first footage from the big-budget zombie movie World War Z is set to make its debut on Entertainment Tonight (way to know your audience, marketers!) this Thursday.

ET apparently couldn’t wait and has posted 20 some-odd seconds of it online.  We’re not sure what to make of it.  The zombies are less walking dead, and more rolling blob.  It’s kind of like Katamari Damacy with corpses.

 

 

 

WWZ has had a tough time making it to theaters.  Most recently, after filming had finished, the studio hired a new writer (Drew Goddard of Cabin in the Woods) to rewrite the third act, and brought the crew back for an additional seven weeks of shooting.  Re-shoots aren’t uncommon, even in great films, but that’s a hell of a lot of them; and rewriting so much of it suggests that something was (is) structurally wrong with the film.
