Brad Pitt is due to arrive in Moscow in June to promote his new film World War Z at the Moscow International Film Festival, the festival’s general producer has said.

The 35th film festival will kick off with the premiere of the upcoming apocalyptic horror film, World War Z, to be attended by producer-star Pitt and film director Marc Forster.

World War Z, the big-budget adaptation of Max Brooks’ 2006 zombie-horror bestseller, is produced by Hollywood studio Paramount in partnership with Pitt’s Plan B production company.

“The Moscow Film Festival has proved itself as a good launching platform for movies,” Leonid Vereschagin told reporters at the Russian Pavillion in Cannes on Saturday.

The Moscow International Film Festival will be held on June 20-29.

A post-apocalyptic zombie movie, World War Z stars Pitt as United Nations employee Gerry Lane, who’s thrown into a race against time to stop a pandemic that’s toppling armies and governments and threatening the very future of humanity.

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.”
