In a summer with no shortage of box office disappointments, “World War Z” has proven to be one of the rare surprises. And now the international zombie thriller starring Brad Pitt is reaping the rewards with a one-week limited engagement on select IMAX screens nationwide beginning this Friday, Aug. 2.
“Z” has been digitally remastered for the IMAX 3D format in order to make its US debut on IMAX screens (having already played select IMAX theaters internationally).
Mireille Enos (“The Killing”) and James Badge Dale (“24”) co-star with Pitt in the film, directed by Marc Forster. It has already earned over $190 million to date in the US and more than $460 million worldwide.
Select theaters and showtime information can be found via the official IMAX site.
