World War Z Blu-ray

Posted August 2, 2013 03:07 PM by Webmaster

ParamountParamount Home Entertainment has officially announced the Blu-ray release of director Marc Forster's World War Z, starring Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale and Matthew Fox. The fast-paced, suspenseful zombie film is being released with an Unrated Cut via Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D combo packs, both of which street on September 17th.

Synopsis: In World War Z, a U.N. employee (Pitt) is racing against time and fate, as he travels the world trying to stop the outbreak of a deadly Zombie pandemic. "I'm really excited for fans to see the new unrated version of World War Z on Blu-ray," said producer and star Brad Pitt. "We were thrilled with the audience response to the film in theaters and wanted to give viewers even more of the action and intensity that they loved when they watch the film at home."

Both Blu-ray editions of World War Z feature the Unrated Cut in 2D, 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround, and DVD and UltraViolet copies of the film. Only the 3D combo pack includes both the Unrated and theatrical cuts (each in 1080p with DTS-HD MA 7.1 surround); the unrated cut is presented in 2D, while the theatrical cut presented on a separate MVC-encoded disc in 3D. Extras for both releases include:

  • Origins: The filmmakers discuss collaborating with renowned actor/producer Brad Pitt to create a Zombie film the likes of which have never been seen.
  • Looking to Science: Explore the scientific realities of Zombie behavior in nature and learn more about Zombies in literature and film.
  • WWZ Production:
    • Outbreak: Go on set with Brad Pitt and director Marc Forster for a behind-the-scenes look at the film's breathtaking first attack in Philadelphia.
    • The Journey Begins: Delve deeper into Gerry's fight for survival during the dramatic escape in South Korea.
    • Behind The Wall: Explore the epic scene in Jerusalem and discover the incredible logistics of creating the elaborate stunts and crowd sequences.
    • Camouflage: Experience the final confrontation between Gerry and the Zombies and discover the phenomenal scope of the film's production.

wnichola76, was it better than his performance in Killing Them Softly? He was great in that. I'll check out World War Z, but I don't like cgi zombies, and the book was great.

Brad Pitt was good in this movie. But his best performance was by far 12 monkeys or Curious Case of Benjamin Button one of my favorite movies and Brad Pitt movies

Why the hell do they only put the unrated cut in 2D?!

@livingproof73 Cause the theatrical cut was only processed in 3D, and the studio just probably wanted to add the unrated cut for Blu-ray. It would cost more to convert the unrated cut for 3D.

Eep, my bad. It was a very tiny detail in the article and the box art didn't say anything about it. :/

One of the few summer 2013 movies that wasn't a big disappointment, look forward to added blood ang guts in this version. Might have to pay the extra for the 3D version since the cover is about a million times cooler.

Well, I suppose this could be OK since the 3D version is converted 3D, but an unrated Blu-ray 3D combo pack setup with a 2D unrated version and 3D theatrical version is inexcusable when applied to such films as A VERY HAROLD AND KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS and HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS (both filmed in 3D).

Is the unrated version the cut with the completely different 30+ minutes of footage that was considered a downer?

Was surprised how much I enjoyed the movie. Shame the original, alternate ending isn't included, though. Would have been interesting to compare the two.

I'm more disappointed to hear that the theatrical cut won't be included in 2D than that the unrated cut won't be available in 3D, if the unrated cut is supposed to drastically change the film for the worse. But, I guess from the studio that still hasn't released the theatrical cut of Payback on BD, such poor logic is to be expected, not that the available DC isn't good, but they are two very different films and most fans fell in love with the theatrical version, and would likely want it or both. I hope the "news" that the 2D BD doesn't include the theatrical cut is just an assumption, since Hansel and Gretel included both in 2D, or the unrated cut isn't the drastically different movie that's been reported.

The theatrical cut is only available on the 3D set in 3D? That is complete and total BS. The theatrical version was perfect the way it was, so I'd hate to be stuck with the uncut version in the event it sucks, especially if it includes the original third act, which DOES suck.

I don't like the zombie (vampire, ufo, haunting) genre. I went in to this move knowing nothing about the movie and I really enjoyed it. There were some plot holes but performances were good and the CGI wasn't bad at all but there was a good 30 minutes where I'm not sure if I even breathed.

I assume the Unrated Cut will give us the original REAL ending instead of the crappy ending we saw in theaters.

@movieman: Apparently Paramount agrees with the current marketing trend, and thinks the majority market for 2D is made up of shallow whimlings, with money to burn, who will buy solely because of who's in it, even if they know so little about the film that they were previously unaware of the cast. Cover artwork shouldn't even be allowed to be called "artwork" any more, there's nothing artistic about most of it these days. I suppose we should be glad they didn't pull a Fifth Element montage, at least.

@jblank -- I haven't seen the film yet, but from what I've read he had a more substantial role in the film prior to it being re-written/shot/edited into the version released in theaters. Now you catch a couple brief glimpses of him (I remember some people saying they saw a guy who looked like Fox... cuz that WAS Fox haha). The unrated cut may restore more of his scenes but I guess we'll have to wait another month to find out. Didn't get to catch this theatrically but I'm looking forward to seeing the unrated (maybe original?) cut on Blu-ray.

Mathew Fox was the helicopter pilot they show several times but the camera cuts away from his face throughout the film. He has 1 line of dialogue spocken off screen. The original ending has a scene that suppose to bring his character to the foreground.

A great movie. I enjoyed 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later. Disappointed there wasn't a 3rd film. WWZ is very similar which I was glad to see. I hope there will be many sequels for both franchises.

I didn't think this was a bad movie. But it just didn't seem to me that it brought anything refreshing to the genre. My movie watching experience was apathetic at best.
