World War Z was a surprise blockbuster this summer -- although, on paper it should never have been a shock that it would make $195,889,000 so far in the U.S. alone. When reshoots and script revisions dominated headlines as the Brad Pitt-starring film neared release date, pundits felt the film was in trouble.
Seriously? Pitt is a huge star and the book upon which it was based is an international bestseller. In hindsight, you could see the blockbuster status from a mile away! In our World War Z review, we found the film an utter thrill ride.
Now Paramount has announced plans for the World War Z Blu-Ray and DVD with the film landing on home video September 17. The film will feature an unrated cut that contains more thrills and action sequences not featured in the theatrical release.
World War Z will be released in various formats including 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack and On Demand.
