The first footage of Brad Pitt in World War Z has emerged online, with Entertainment Tonight previewing a few snippets in advance of a more detailed â€œfirst lookâ€ scheduled for broadcast in the coming weeks.
And while thereâ€™s only about 30 seconds or so to go on, what we can conclude already is that World War Z is going to be epic, and its zombie horde a force to be reckoned with.
This is no posse-sized gathering of shamblers menacing a luckless shopping mall. This is a full-on army of brain-hungry zombies, whose antics have soon laid America (and indeed the world) to waste.

Adapted from the novel by Max Brooks, the film will follow Pittâ€™s UN employee Gerry Lane, who finds himself in a race against time to find a cure for the zombie pandemic, before society rips itself to pieces for good.
Directed by Marc Forster and co-starring Anthony Mackie, Matthew Fox and Mireille Enos, World War Z will open in the UK on 21 June 2013.
