World War Z

Join us for a special Halloween screening.

In this apocalyptic action film, a lethal virus is spreading across the globe and turning humans into terrifying zombies. Former United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) embarks on a worldwide hunt for patient zero in an attempt to develop a vaccine and stop the outbreak – can he reach the World Health Organization in time?

After the film you’ll be able to take part in a discussion with Saira Hussain, a postdoctoral researcher who works in The Worldwide Influenza Centre at The Francis Crick Institute and Professor of Mathematical Biology, Edward Codling from the University of Essex. They’ll talk about aspects of the film which resonate with their areas of research from the surveillance of flu to how crowds behave in specific situations.

Age guidance: Certificate 15
