The first "World War Z" poster showed off the film's ant-like zombie hordes, without even a peek at star Brad Pitt, but a new one-sheet corrects the omission.

Directed by Marc Forster, and based on the highly-recommended book by Max Brooks, "WWZ" finds Pitt at the center of a worldwide undead infestation. As a UN agent, Pitt must travel the globe, collecting interviews from survivors at the ground level in order to help establish a vaccine to the zombie virus. 

In the new poster, Pitt surveys a once-great metropolis that has since been destroyed by ghouls, guns and fire. The film takes place allover the world, with scenes in the U.S., China, Israel, the U.K., and more. Although we don't see his face, there's no mistaking those luscious locks.

Hey, be careful, Brad -- you look pretty close to the edge there, buddy.
