Global Hit Debuts One Week Early on Digital

   

               

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.  – August 2, 2013 –  “The suspense is killer!” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) in the fast-paced, pulse-pounding epic WORLD WAR Z, debuting on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and On Demand on September 17, 2013.  The pandemic begins one week early on Digital September 10th.  Due to overwhelming demand, the film has been digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® 3D format and will be released in select IMAX theaters domestically for an exclusive one-week running beginning today. 

Starring international superstar Brad Pitt and based on the best-selling and wildly popular novel, WORLD WAR Z took audiences by storm and was hailed by critics as   “thrilling, epic and spectacular” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly) and the “most gratifying action spectacle in years!” (David Denby, The New Yorker).  The tense and thrilling film follows a former United Nations investigator (Pitt) as he helps stop the chaotic pandemic that has gripped populations around the world.  WORLD WAR Z features stunning visual effects and edge-of-your-seat action and suspense that take the Zombie apocalypse phenomenon to a more extreme and electrifying level.

“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.”

Given how they reshot the entire third act of this, it would be interesting to see that original footage.

Perhaps the "alternate original ending" or something is coming at some point, but I fully see why it's not coming now. Sequel (or perhaps even trilogy) is planned so why confuse people now with the different ending?

I'm personally a bit tired of talking about the original ending, since that's not what I saw in the theatres. And I was actually quite happy with the current ending (don't want to spoil anything, so...).

Don't get me wrong - I would love to see that original ending at some point, but now I just want to see a proper sequel. I love the film.

They shot some of this in Glasgow, about 90 minutes from my location, anyways the usual question i have for a 3D conversion, is there good depth and pop out or is it mostly depth. ?
