First ever footage from World War Z shows Brad Pitt's zombie wave

After a tornado of disastrous rumors, the movie adaptation of Max Brooks World War Z trudges on.

Here is the very first footage from the film starring Brad Pitt as a brand new character, United Nations employee Gerry Lane. Gerry travels the zombie-destroyed world looking for a hope (none of this is in the book, by the way).

Word has it that the official trailer will hit this Thursday, but until then take a look at this collection of footage that aired on Entertainment Tonight. Which features a zombie... swarm? Yikes, not sure how that's going to work. What's the verdict, folks? Can this movie be saved from the terrible, headless rumors that have plagued it?
