New poster for World War Z brings the mayhem

World War Z has released a new poster online, featuring Brad Pitt and family caught in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

The new poster plonks Pitt’s UN worker in the middle of a scene of absolute chaos as he desperately tries to shepherd his family away from the onrushing ranks of the undead.

We’ll be honest, it’s not the most impressive piece of Photoshop wizardry we’ve ever seen, and Pitt could do with looking a little more anxious, but it gets the gist of the movie across okay…

Adapted from Max Brooks’ best-selling novel, the new film will follow Pitt’s character in a race against time to thwart the burgeoning zombie pandemic before it claims humanity altogether.

Directed by Marc Forster and co-starring Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale and Matthew Fox, World War Z will open in the UK on 21 June 2013.

In the meantime, you can check out the full poster, below…
