Actor-producer Brad Pitt made an unannounced appearance at the annual CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas to show off material from his upcoming apocalyptic epic, “World War Z.”

“Listen, five years ago, I knew absolutely nothing about a zombie; today, I consider myself an expert,” Pitt said, smiling for a packed house of surprised theater owners at Caesars Palace on Monday night. “This whole thing started because I just wanted to do a film that my boys could see before they turned 18 — one that they would like, anyways. And they love a zombie.” The 49-year-old Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie have six children, including three sons.

“So, we settled on this book, Max Brooks’ book, called ‘World War Z,'” Pitt continued. “We were faced with two Herculean challenges: How do we keep the global, spectacular, dynamic scope of the book and how do we originate a genre that’s been done quite often and really, really well? What you’re about to see is our answer to those two questions.”

A 3-D version of the film’s trailer was shown, along with 2-D versions of frantic and frightening stand-alone set pieces from the movie, which were perhaps best described as “The Running Dead.”

Actors: They’re so cute when they’re young. And, as their audition tapes often prove — super-talented. Now, some audition tapes featuring actors before they were uber-famous are going up on the auction block, and Darren Julien and Martin Nolan of Julien’s Auction House joined TODAY’s Matt Lauer Monday to share some extremely rare footage.

“We’ve never sold anything like this, so it’s hard to say” how much the tapes will go for, said Julien, though bidding estimates are currently in the very reasonable range of $2,000-4,000.

The tapes are not very high quality, but showcase some actors in the earliest years of their careers and shine a revealing light on just which actors went up for which roles, parts they weren’t always right for. One of the tapes features a 15-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio in 1990 trying out for a TV series based on “The Outsiders,” instead, the role went to “Mad Men’s” Jay R. Ferguson.

Also up for purchase: Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr. and Keanu Reeves all trying out for 1991’s “Backdraft” (the role went to William Baldwin), Gwyneth Paltrow and Helen Hunt trying out for the role Laura Dern ultimately won in 1993’s “Jurassic Park” and Nicole Kidman giving it her all while auditioning for 1991’s “Shattered” (a role that went to Greta Scacchi). Plus many more.

Read more. Must watch the video! Brad’s audition is at the 2 minute mark.
