Brad Pitt On Set
Pitt shoots scenes for 'World War Z.'
It’s Brad Pitt versus the zombies.

In the new action-packed trailer for his thriller World War Z, the actor stars as United Nations researcher Gerry Lane, who races against time to try to the end the zombie apocalypse that’s taking over the globe.

“Life as we know it will come in an end in 90 days,” Navy Captain Mullenaro (David Andrews) says. “It’s on us to change that.”

Lane is forced to leave behind his family — wife Karen Lane (Mireille Enos) and their two daughters — to chase down the cause of the walking dead pandemic that threatens to kill all of humanity.

“I can’t leave my family,” Pitt’s character says. “Don’t pretend your family is exempt when we talk about the end of humanity,” Mullenaro responds.

World War Z, based on the novel of the same name by Max Brooks, was originally set for release in December 2012. But following production delays, the Paramount Pictures film will now hit theaters on June 21.
