Watch: 'World War Z's' Super Bowl trailer

The Super Bowl commercials are descending fast and furious ahead of Sunday's big game, and that flurry of ads now includes the game day trailer for the upcoming "World War Z."

The movie's based on Max Brooks' novel that recounts a zombie apocalypse through a series of interviews with survivors. Due out in June, it's one of our picks for the biggest and buzziest movies of the year.

The full-length trailer, which was released last fall, shows Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family stuck in a traffic jam in New York. When Lane gets out of his car to investigate, that's when the mayhem begins.

The Super Bowl ad is just 30 seconds, tightened for maximum impact. The clip still begins with the peaceful car game, but then quickly cuts to the chaos that erupts on the streets of NYC.  As Lane attempts to get his family to safety, a voiceover informs us that the devastation is global as bodies begin to pile up: the East Coast is wiped out, and China is lost.

"World War Z" is set to arrive June 23. Think the Super Bowl ad makes it look worth the wait?

    Im disappointed. In changing the story up they completley missed the point. How are you not gonna have the battle for yonkers, the chinese submarine story, the celebrity reality show massacre, the reddecker plan, The Panic of the intial infection, the infection spreading from blackmarket organs..i can go on, point is instead of basing it on established fiction then ignoring that fictions base ideas why not call it something else? @zombiegirl i like the remake too, great zombie effects especially how they got gnarlier as the storyline progressed although the original is still tops for me despite its age.

    • Huh?

      The "point"? Since when does a zombie film ever need to have a point?

      Besides, the lame book was all over the map, story wise, and because of that alone, not cinematic at all.

      It would have been better as an animated series of films or a TV miniseries (still animated). TOO much in the book to make into a 2-3 hr movie. I am disappointed in the concept although the effects still look good. As for the schlep who called it a lame book, sorry it didnt have pictures like The Walking Dead novels, Sparky, but some of us can read and did find the book enjoyable. No Battle of Yonkers? THAT is LAME!

    My fav zombie movie still is the Dawn of the Dead remake with Sarah Polly and Ving Rhymes(Rhames?). Seen it a hundred times and still enjoy watching it.

    This is nothing like the book, thank goodness, which was pretty slow and disjointed. I'm sure I'll give it a shot!
