Sneaking World War Z Super Bowl Spot

Check out the Super Bowl spot for Paramount’s World War Z (June 21) starring Brad Pitt and directed by Marc Forster.

Based on Max Brooks’ best-selling novel, Pitt races against time to stop a zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and threatens to destroy the world. Adam Valdez is the production VFX supervisor, with VFX spread around Cinesite, MPC, Framestore, and others; and previs by Halon and The Third Floor.

Plus Oscar-winning cinematographer Bob Richardson gave his own sneak peek: “The shooting was complex. I learned a tremendous amount about CGI — I have not been a part of a project where a majority of the shots were to be altered or created in post. A massive learning curve, creating a realistic world in which the antagonists — the zombies — were not real, where Marc needed to create characters that felt real in an environment that was often only partially visible. It’s a tent pole film with the heart and focus of a far smaller film.”
