Back in August we announced that World War Z had managed to get a release date of 21st December 2012, facing tough competition against The Hobbit and Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, well, I’m sorry to be the barer of bad news but that release date has now officially been pushed back 6 months.
World War Z is based on Max Brooks’ book of the same name, a novel which recounts testiments of the survivors of a zombie apocalypse. It is understood the movie will only be loosely based on the fantastical novel and boasts the cast of Brad Pitt, Matthew Fox and David Morse.
The movie will now be released on 21st June 2013 with no official reason for the delay. It is, however, speculated that the reasons might include the below par box office takings of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last christmas, as well as the aforementioned tough December schedule which already includes The Hobbit and Django Unchained.
What do you think? Are you sorry to see the delay or do you understand the logic behind it? Are you eager to watch World War Z? Please let me know in the comment section below!
