HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — “World War Z” gives us the basics of a summer blockbuster — a star actor (Brad Pitt) and a far-fetched action-packed plot (hero races to stop virus that is turning all of humanity into zombies).
So can’t we all just buy some popcorn, suspend our disbelief and enjoy the show?
Well, no. The movie features another equally well-known newsmaker, if in this case less publicized: Israel.
The zombie plague is spreading like wildfire, and Pitt’s character, Gerry Lane, a former UN official turned stay-at-home dad, learns that only two countries have been able to stave off the infection.
