World War Z: "I Can't Leave My Family" Clip


Paramount Pictures have shared (via Yahoo!) the clip embedded below, titled "Not Without My Family," depicting the chaos of evacuation in a major city during the zombie apocalypse.

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. It's a safe bet that he's necessary to global defense strategy, but that when they come to get him for his work, he won't leave without his family. See how that works?

World War Z stars Pitt, The Killing's Mireille Enos, Iron Man 3's James Badge Dale, Hearts in Atlantis's David Morse and more. The film will be in theaters on June 21.


Widely expected to be one of the summer's big flops, the film was said to have serious problems when they went back for reshoots and delayed the release date–but the first screenings were held last night and came back with ecstatic fan response and fairly positive buzz from critics. Whether that will help World War Z perform at the box office remains to be seen, but it can't hurt. You can check out our recent interview with World War Z creator Max Brooks here.
