23. 'World War Z'
In Theaters: Friday, June 21, 2013
Director: Marc Forster
Cast: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, Anthony Mackie, Matthew Fox, David Morse, James Badge Dale
Why we're excited: Max Brooks' fascinating chronicle of a fictional (duh) zombie war is pretty much unfilmable the way it was written, so Forster and co. have seemingly dispensed with the book's though-provoking, interview-based narrative in order to focus more on CG-powered zombie action. It may not make audiences think, but it will no doubt provide some fun summer escapist scenes in which Pitt witnesses the rise of an undead species.
