"World War Z" (Dec. 21)
Stars: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale Director: Marc Forster ("Quantum of Solace")
Brad Pitt and a zombie apocalypse. That's some holiday gift Hollywood has in store for audiences in this adaptation of Max Brooks' brain-munching novel. Pitt plays a UN investigator on the case of what brought about worldwide zombie devastation, in a film that—done right—could garner as much awards chatter as box office appeal.
