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

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.

Just the other day, we heard Steven Spielberg and George Lucas discuss an upcoming radical shift in the way movie theaters operate and today, we have what may be our first glimpse at this crazy future. In conjunction with next week's release of 'World War Z,' Paramount has introduced the concept of a "Mega Ticket." Here's how it works: you pay $50 to see the new Brad Pitt zombie blockbuster and you get a whole bunch of goodies, food and souvenirs along with the screening. But, do you think it's worthwhile?

'World War Z' is a film about fighting zombies, and it's funny that the film has screened (and screened well) but is still fighting undead rumors about it being a total disaster. We saw the film and liked it, but it's going to need good word of mouth to be one of the hits this summer. Perhaps it will get better word with this clip, which sets up how Brad Pitt is forced into action to stop the zombie apocalypse.
