Introduction of World War Z Movie and free copy methods

World War Z

World War Z is based on the zombocalyptic horror novel of the same name written by Max Brooks. Directed by Marc Forster, the movie tells a story that United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself.


World War Z is Brad Pitt's zombie epic about the spread of a virus that turns people into the undead, but instead of walking they sprint and create chaos with every step. Gerry Lane (played by Brad Pitt), a former UN investigator, is called into action by an old friend when the human race is on the brink of extinction. While he risks his life to look for a cure, his family (with his wife Karin played by the incredible Mireille Enos) is on a US Navy Carrier out at sea. Nations fall, people turn on each other, and it seems all is lost. But, this is not the case as Gerry begins piecing together clues and starts a search that will change everything, leading to the "war."

The movie is rated PG-13 (PG-13 — Parents strongly cautioned as some material may be inappropriate for children under 13 years old) for intense frightening zombie sequences, violence and disturbing images.

Something Special:

  • Unlike the zombies in traditional impression that they are these slow moving undead (like The Walking Dead) or fairly fast moving (like 28 Days/Weeks Later), these zombies move and act almost superhuman instead. At points, they work almost like fire ants; they cluster together and flood themselves into whatever it is they are going after.

  • Originally, the film had a different ending. In it, the plane lands in Moscow rather than crash. The passengers are rounded up, and the elderly and sick are executed. Gerry is drafted into the Russian army. An unknown period of time passes, and we see Gerry fighting the zombies. He realizes the zombies are weak in the cold. The film ended with him getting back to the USA and leading a D-Day like invasion against the undead on the Oregon coast. The ending that was used instead made the movie less brutal and ended it with a glimpse of hope.(quoted from IMDb)

World War Z


Gerry Lane: If you can fight, fight. Be prepared for anything. Our war has just begun.

Jurgen WarmbrunnM: Most people don't believe something can happen until it already has. That's not stupidity or weakness, that's just human nature.

Andrew Fassbach: Mother Nature is a serial killer. She wants to get caught, she leaves bread crumbs, she leaves clues... Mother Nature knows how to disguise her weakness as strength.
