New action-packed World War Z trailer

Brad Pitt stars in this action-packed new teaser for undead apocalypse drama.

The second trailer for Brad Pitt's forthcoming apocalypse romp 'World War Z' has arrived.

Once more, it's playing the blissful domesticity card heavily, and then throwing in some frenzied running zombie action to create a bit of shocking contrast.

In the first trailer, Pitt and his movie fam are breaking up the time with a lovely game in a traffic jam, and here it's an equally lovely soft-focus breakfast scene before the hellish business begins in earnest.

“Don't pretend your family is exempt when we talk about the end of humanity,” says a grave army chap to Brad Pitt's Gerry Lane, a UN man hoping to find a way of stopping the zombie pandemic.

If the trailer's anything much to go by, the key to survival seems to be generally avoiding air travel.

Pitt heads up a sturdy cast, which also comprises 'The Killing's Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and Bryan Cranston, with former Bond director Marc Foster in the director's chair.

It's due out on June 21.
