Watch the world fall apart in 1st footage from World War Z

The countdown for World War Z in on. In a couple of days, Paramount will release the first trailer for the zombie epic. But why wait when you can get a sneak peek at the footage now?

It feels like we've been waiting for World War Z forever. To say it's had a troubled production would be an understatement. After countless delays and budget concerns, it's finally heading to theaters. Based on Max Brooks' hit novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, the film centers on a United Nations employee (Brad Pitt) who races against time to stop a zombie pandemic.

The creatures quickly topple governments and destroy armies in their wake. No one is safe, and no one can be trusted. The trailer showcases global hysteria, followed by complete destruction.

World War Z opens June 21, 2013, and co-stars Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse.
