World War Z (2013)

What editions are available?

  • Theatrical (115 min.)
  • Unrated (122 min.)

Brad Pitt starred in and produced the ill fated zombie/disaster movie World War Z in 2013. The Golden Globe nominee Marc Forster directed World War Z and is said to have clashed with the A-list star on the production which resulted in the movie going through many stages of disasters. The affair was well documented by Vanity Fair in a enlighten article and it’s no secret that one third of the movie was scrapped, rewritten and then reshot. On Blu-ray viewers can choose between two versions.

”I’m very proud of the rated version and what we pulled off,” said Forster when asked by ShockTillYouDrop about the two versions. “The unrated version is my preference because it’s not just about blood and gore being added. The overall intensity is more than the rated version. You can dial it up more. That’s what I found was that the film didn’t need to be so much more gorey. The level of intensity is bigger.”
