World War Z, starring Brad Pitt, is coming to 3D Blu-ray in September
One of the biggest question marks coming into the summer of 2013 was Brad Pitt’s troubled production, WORLD WAR Z. As it turns out, the stress was all for nothing as the film proved to be a good time and a commercial success. If you missed it in theaters, you can catch it on an unrated 3D and 2D Blu-ray on September 17th, featuring all new footage. You can also catch it on VOD one week earlier. Unfortunately, there’s no commentary track on the disc as I was looking forward to hearing director Marc Forester or star Brad Pitt talk about some of the re-shoots or at least address the drama.
WORLD WAR Z official synopsis: World War Z revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (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. Based on the book of the same name by Max Brooks, WORLD WAR Z stars Brad Pitt, Eric West, Matthew Fox, David Morse, James Badge Dale, Mireille Enos and David Andrews.
