World War Z 2 Release Date 

It has been years since the first movie was released and fans still have not got the sequel yet. They are hopefully waiting for the makers to give an update about the sequel. The movie had a stroke of bad luck from the beginning. To begin with, several cast members backed out of the sequel because of their other commitments, only to bring it this far. In 2019, China banned films that are primarily concerned with the concept of zombies and ghosts, which is why Paramount is still hesitant to invest in the film, the prequel’s budget was somewhere between 190–269 million dollars. China being the biggest market for Hollywood films could affect the box office of the sequel badly. If Paramount confirms the sequel, we won’t see a release date until 2023 or 2024 at the earliest.

Surprisingly, All of a sudden, a fire breaks out in front of them and everyone starts running. The Lane family does not quickly grasp the situation until later when they witness a guy turning into a zombie in front of their eyes. The zombies start biting humans, and every human they bite turns into a zombie within seconds. Gerry’s elder daughter Rachel, being an asthmatic patient, could not stay calm after the entire situation, and her health got worse after they managed to drive away from the area in a vehicle. The film then follows how Gerry protects his family from the apocalypse as he joins government security to put an end to this situation.
