I'm sure it's been covered somewhere in the thread, but the zombies from World War Z were of the slow lumbering type, not the 28 Days Later version. And has been mentioned, the WWZ story is about a reporter traveling the world reporting on how humanity survived after the fact, not as it breaks out.
Maybe Bradd Pitt's character is one of the soldiers depicted in one of the short stories of the book, telling his story alone?
From the trailer, they did get one thing right. People did mass on aircraft carriers in the book after the outbreak. Other than that, the book is nothing but a bunch of first-hand accounts of the zombie war from many different aspects, put together by an author after the war had ended.
