With Paramount Pictures set to finally release its film adaptation of World War Z
next year (starring the ever-dreamy Brad Pitt), it's now filing trademarks for lots of associated products. In addition to filings for various undead merchandise (Halloween costumes
!), the company has also filed two trademarks relating to video games.
Specifically, one trademark
was filed for "entertainment services, namely, providing online electronic games," while the other
relates to downloadable, handheld and cartridge/disc games. It's hardly surprising that a major film would have a video game tie-in, but we're a little worried about the source material. Zombies? In a video game? Frankly, we're just not sure it can work.
