Watch World War Z Online Last week, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas sounded a warning for the modern blockbuster movie culture they helped build. The industry, they said, was at risk of imploding. As movie budgets grow ever bigger, these cinematic spectacles have the potential to destroy studios.
Amid this comes World War Z, another case of ballooning budgets fed by a studio and a Hollywood star hungry to create a new action franchise.
Watch World War Z Online Free World War Z stars Brad Pitt and was produced by his production company, Plan B. A small army of screenwriters turned the source novel, based on first-person accounts of a global zombie outbreak, into a conventional thriller centered on a U.N. investigator hunting for the source of the epidemic.
Watch World War Z Movie As reported in Vanity Fair, there was a lot riding on WWZ. Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster was looking to convince the industry he still had the right stuff to mount a big-screen thriller. Pitt was looking to jump from heartthrob to hero, following in the wake of Matt Damon in trying to show the industry he too could front a major action picture.

The original ending (a brutal battle set in Russia) was so poorly received that producers recruited a new troop of screenwriters, including Prometheus scribe Damon Lindelof, to rewrite it. They then reshot the entire third act, at a reported cost of some $20 million.
