Update: Watch the first trailer here.
Considering the insane amount of money Skyfall has raked in overseas already, Paramount have done the smart thing and plan to debut the first trailer for their big summer tentpole World War Z with the US release of the latest James Bond film this weekend. As per usual, Entertainment Tonight have gone and butchered the first footage from this teaser with their quick peek before the official debut.

We’ve certainly got quite a bit of Brad Pitt already in this look, but one can already see the sheer scope is something to behold with a plethora of fast-moving zombies. While this quick look seems to sway heavily into CG territory, I look forward to the full trailer this Thursday. For now, check out the tease below along with a preliminary poster absent of our director, but makes sure to mention its star.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
