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'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.
Henry Cavill is in negotiations to star in The Great Wall. The British actor - who is set to be the next Superman in movie Man of Steel - has entered talks to play the as-yet-unknown leading role in the movie, co-written by Love & Other Drugs director Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz.
Little is known about the project other than it will tell the tale of the construction of the huge wall which was built to separate China from its neighbors to the north. It began being made in the 5th century BC but has been demolished and re-created a number of times since.
Thomas Tull and Max Brooks came up with the idea for the film, which is being housed by Legendary East.
Henry has a number of films planned for release, including the aforementioned Man of Steel, in which he stars alongside Amy Adams and Michael Shannon, and The Cold Light of Day, which will be released in April.
