World War Z Max Brooks Extinction Parade TV Series Zombies Vampires

Zombies on TV have been pretty well locked down since 'The Walking Dead' became a putrid pop culture phenomenon that has since spawned its own spinoff, just as vampires had previously been covered by the likes of 'Buffy,' 'True Blood' and beyond. What better alternative than to pit the two against one another in a TV adaptation of 'World War Z' creator Max Brooks' 'The Extinction Parade'?

‘World War Z 2′ – Everything We Know About The Upcoming Sequel

Paramount

'World War Z 2'? What a difference a weekend can make.

Before this weekend, Marc Forster’s ‘World War Z’ was widely categorized as “Brad Pitt’s troubled zombie project.” Numerous publicized reports documented the contentious relationships between the star and his director. Screenwriter Damon Lindelof went on record to talk about a rewritten ending, which led to costly reshoots.

But a funny thing happened when ‘World War Z’ actually opened. Critics and audiences embraced the film, powering the apocalyptic zombie thriller to an impressive $66 million domestic opening weekend, and a worldwide total of $111.8 million with plenty more international markets still to come.

Against all odds, talk of 'World War Z 2' began, with The Hollywood Reporter confirming Sunday afternoon that Paramount is “reviving plans for further installments.”

That’s good news for fans of Pitt, this movie, and Max Brooks’ original source material, which seems to be where the studio will start when developing the next movie(s). Here’s what we know so far about ‘World War Z 2.’

Zombies may be really hot right now, but there's one thing that is (and probably always will be) a bigger deal: Pixar. Brad Pitt's 'World War Z' performed quite well in its opening weekend, but even the biggest zombie movie of all time couldn't keep pace with 'Monsters University.'

‘World War Z’ Review

World War Z Review
Paramount

The title is 'World War Z,' but I can think up two other letters: "O" and "K."

'World War Z' is okay because it zips along with the fury of a computer-generated cascade of fast zombies. 'World War Z' is okay because Brad Pitt is a great leading man, even if his character has no depth. 'World War Z' is okay because there is always a fatalistic draw to see our social order tumble and great cities reduced to cinders.

It is also, unfortunately, merely okay because there's nothing in this movie you haven't seen before.
