The wait is over. The first trailer for World War Z has arrived. Tuesday, we previewed the footage, and now it's time for the real deal. Let's see what all the fuss is about.

In World War Z, the world goes to hell in a zombie-filled handbasket. The film's based on the Max Brooks novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. It centers on Gerry Lane, a United Nations worker who's thrust into the middle of a national pandemic.

The trailer starts off innocent, but quickly evolves into pure chaos. Gerry's separated from his family and forced to fight hundreds of mindless creatures. These zombies are fast and extremely dangerous.

Aside from Brad Pitt, the cast includes a group of TV all-stars such as Mirielle Enos (The Killing), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Matthew Fox (Lost) and David Morse (Treme).

Check out the trailer.

Word War Z opens June 21.
