Jolie and Pitt are promoting hard. which makes me think the movie is rubbish and they are overcompensating for something. The movie cost 400 million to make because they had to redo the ending which cost an extra 2 million on top of the 200 million budget Brad's production company set previously. Plus i think people are a little tired of zombies and armagedon movies. Will world war z flop? will you see it?

From what I think I remember, they filmed the movie then had another director/writer come in and film parts to insert into the finished movie because the original cut sucked. From the previews that tell me nothing about the plot, I don't think it'll be a great Pitt movie.
Turning the World War Z buzz around
Posted by David Konow
This summer, there are two
movies that have a lot on the line: The Lone Ranger, and World War Z. A
Wall Street analyst even predicted they could end up being the biggest
flops of this moviegoing season, if not the year.
Lone Ranger has had trouble from the get-go, to the point where Disney
actually shut the film down while sets were being built, and only when
Johnny Depp, director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean), and
producer Jerry Bruckheimer agreed to reduce their fees did the shoot
continue. Reports of trouble on World War Z have also been incessant,
and it looks like Paramount is going on the offensive, especially after a
Vanity Fair cover story that detailed the runaway train production.
Deadline just ran a story claiming they’ve seen the film,
and that in their opinion it’s far from the disaster everyone’s been
predicting. As Mike Fleming writes, “I can honestly say that it’s better
than good; try a rocking, smart, pulse pounding big scale pandemic with
raging zombies, tension and the kind of hero star turn Brad Pitt hasn’t
done in a long time.” (Don’t forget last summer Deadline also tried to convince us that Battleship would be a big hit.)
Damon Lindelof (Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness) recalled that after
working on the screenplay for Prometheus, he got an emergency call about
World War Z, because Brad Pitt liked the Prometheus script. Lindelof
saw 75 minutes of the movie, which reportedly worked, and he told the Reporter
“The idea of a large-scale, epic, $150 million zombie movie starring
Brad Pitt sounds pretty good to me. Because I haven’t seen that
As a script doctor, Lindelof can make $200-300,000 a week, and he
wrote sixty new script pages for the movie, which cost the production
$20 million on top of its $170 million budget. Drew Goddard, who
co-wrote and directed Cabin in the Woods, chimed in with help as well.
While Lindelof was willing to help out with World War Z, he definitely
didn’t want to take on Star Wars for his friend JJ Abrams, which he said
would be “a lose-lose for me in every way shape or form.”
Again, until the final legit reviews are in, all bets are off on
this one, and it could go several ways. It could either be a truly great
movie, simply good, fair to mediocre, or just downright dreadful. Where
on earth it could actually land, we have no idea, but we’ll know the
answer in less than a month when World War Z finally lands in theaters
on June 21.
that's the impression i got, when he's out promoting the movie and all he's got to talk about is her breast it must not be that good.. its like he's pimping her breast surgery to get folks to pay attention..
