World War Z centers around U.N. investigator Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family, who must flee the zombie pandemic while he tries to find a way to stop it. Co-writer Drew Goddard summed up the film by saying, "With a movie like this it starts and ends with the family...So it is really a very small story told on this epic scale." Co-writer Damon Lindelof added that Brad's character, "is saving the world so that he can save his family."
With all this talk about family on the red carpet at the movie's New York premiere, we had to ask Brad how he spent Father's Day. He revealed, "We were at 40,000 feet flying over here [to New York], so we had a little celebration in the air." He also admitted that his sons critique his movies. "Yeah, my boys like this one. I mean they have not seen that many of them [my films] because they are not old enough, but my two boys saw this one [World War Z] and they loved it," he said.
What was dad like as a movie dad? "Easy going, lots of fun," says Abigail Hargrove, who plays Brad's oldest daughter in the film.
World War Z hits theaters Friday.
