Philly in flames, Brad Pitt to the rescue!

The trailer for "World War Z," the post-apocalyptic zombie film set in Philadelphia, is out. Watch the City of Brotherly Love in the panicky throes of all out war!

Philly in flames, Brad Pitt to the rescue!

There are the twin spires of Liberty Place, the blue steel of the Ben Franklin Bridge, and a PWD truck careening out of control on a Center City byway, plowing into a Philly motorcycle cop as he barks an order at Brad Pitt to get back in his car.

Yes, the zombie apocalypse is upon us – or will be come June, 2013. Shot in Glasgow dressed up as Philadelphia (don't ask), World War Z has been directed by Marc Forster (Monster's Ball, Quantum of Solace), based on the book by Max Brooks. Watch the first trailer right here, right now.
