Brad Pitt surprised fans at another screening of World War Z on Friday night.
The 49-year-old actor, who has been on a worldwide promotional tour for the film, delighted fans by showing up unannounced at a screening of his new movie in Los Angeles. The actor addressed the audience before the movie began, according to EOnline.com, and said, "I've been on the road... it's been amazing, but damn it's good to be home. Thanks for coming out. [World War Z] is big, it's bold, it's badass. You've never seen anything like it. It's the most intense thing you'll see all summer. If not, we'll give you your money back. Let's get this party started."
The actor has made similar surprise appearances at cinemas in Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Georgia, and also showed up at a theatre in Austin, Texas, on Thursday.
Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is earning $3,000-a-week on her first acting job.
The four-year-old tot - the youngest daughter of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - is starring alongside her mother in her new movie Maleficent and according to her contract, she is being paid an impressive amount for a minor. Gossip website TMZ also claims Vivienne - who has a twin brother, Knox - is being given $60-a-day in expenses.
As well as Vivienne - who will play a younger version of Elle Fanning's character Princess Aurora in the live-action film - starring in the movie, her siblings Pax, nine, and eight-year-old Zahara have also won roles. "They have smaller parts," a source said.
But the couple's other daughter Shiloh - who previously appeared alongside her father in acclaimed 2008 movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - is said to have turned down an opportunity to be in the new Disney film. "Shiloh was supposed to be in it, too, but she was bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen, so she ended up not being in the film," the source added.
We've seen Brad Pitt's photos on set. Now we finally have a first look at World War Z, the zombie apocalypse flick based off the popular Max Brooks book of the same name.
The heavy use of CGI and casting of Pitt definitely cements its blockbuster status, but hopefully it won't be all that bad. The complete first trailer will be unveiled this week, but fans will have to wait until June 21, 2013 to see it in theaters.

Brad Pitt says actors can longer expect to earn multi-million dollar salaries.
The 48-year-old actor insists Hollywood just doesn't have the cash to splash on its major stars at the moment due to the global financial crisis and the top actors must simply get used to the economic change. When asked if major stars could expect to earn $10 million per movie, he told the BBC, "Yeah, that thing died. That arithmetic doesn't really work right now ... that deal's not flying these days."
Despite the drop in salaries, Brad insists it is a really "interesting" time in Hollywood at the moment. The Killing Them Softly star insists the monetary challenges can bring the best out of the industry. "It's a really interesting time. A lot of the studios have been challenged because of the economic downturn as well so they've been betting on bigger, more tent pole kinds of things. At the same time that opens up a vacuum for really interesting new filmmakers to come in," he explained.
Brad Pitt's World War Z is set to undergo a script rewrite and extensive reshoots even though filming has ended.
The actor - who is also one of the producers - shot the post-apocalyptic horror film in various locations around Europe last year but Prometheus screenwriter Damon Lindelof has been brought on board to fix some problems with the first cut. Lindelof is thought to be concentrating on the film's third act which reportedly needs serious restructuring.
The December 2012 release date has been pushed back to summer 2013 to allow for six to seven weeks of reshoots in September and October.
The movie is based on the 2006 novel by Max Brooks and also stars Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, and Anthony Mackie. Marc Forster has directed the film.
The reshoots will be a blow to the studio Paramount, who had hoped to turn it into a trilogy.

Brad Pitt may reunite with Angelina Jolie for new movie The Counselor.
The Moneyball actor is in negotiations for a part in the Ridley Scott-directed project, which could see him star in a movie with his partner - with whom he raises six children - for the first time since Mr & Mrs Smith, where they first met.
Prometheus actor Michael Fassbender is already on board for the project, which tells the tale of a respected lawyer who "dips a toe" into the drug business. According to Deadline.com, the story is like "No Country for Old Men on steroids." Javier Bardem is also in talks for a part in the movie.
Filming is set to begin in the summer in Europe, and it would be a rare foray into the world of work for both Brad and Angelina, who rarely film movies at the same time.
Commenting on the possibility of them working together again, Brad said last year, "We're not ones to repeat ourselves, but we'd like to, because right now, we're hopscotching with films so one can be with the kids and one is free to work."
Jonah Hill and James Franco are teaming up for True Story.
The Moneyball star and the 127 Hours actor will appear in the movie adaptation of Michael Finkel's memoir which will see Jonah play the writer who establishes a connection with captured criminal Christian Longo (James) after it is revealed he had been using Finkel's identity while on the run. When Finkel's employers The New York Times fired him the day after Longo's arrest amid claims he had falsified parts of a recent investigative article, the writer tried to redeem himself through interviews with Longo, who refused to speak to any other journalist.
Brad Pitt's World War Z is being considered as a potential trilogy. Director Marc Foster and Paramount Pictures are both thought to view the post-apocalyptic horror film as a trilogy, which could see the 48-year-old star finally get a big movie franchise of his own.
The motion picture - which is set to be released later this year - sees Brad portray the role of a United Nations fact-finder and family man who travels around the world to visit survivors of a zombie apocalypse which is referred to as World War Z. Should the film be turned into a trilogy, it is thought it will take on the same realism of Matt Damon's Bourne series.
Brad recently starred as Billy Beane in baseball drama movie Moneyball and director Bennett Miller - who stepped in following the summer 2009 departure of Steven Soderbergh, who had been developing the script for two years - found the Hollywood actor's experience on both sides of the camera to be invaluable: "You work all day with Brad the actor and there's that energy, and then we'd wrap at the end of the day and maybe half an hour later we'd get together in this little area outside his trailer and he'd be Brad the producer. We would look at the next day, just go over things and maybe have a glass of wine. Sometimes it would be two or three hours of discussing and planning, and it's pretty exhausting making a movie, but it became this ritual for us. And then early the next morning, Brad the actor is back, being on set and making things happen in a totally different way."
Brad Pitt plans to retire at 50.
The Moneyball actor has revealed he does not plan to stay in front of the camera indefinitely and believes he only has "three years" left in Hollywood, but may turn to producing films instead.
"I've really enjoyed the producerial side and getting stories to the plate that may have had a harder time otherwise."
Despite being keen to step behind the camera, Brad has previously said he would not direct because he would never get to see his family: "I have no aspirations for directing. It would drive me crazy and my family crazy, I'd never see them. It would take me three years to do it. I like what I do now. I love cinema and I'm still watching films I was watching 20 years ago. Making films that stand, that's the goal."
