Brad Pitt premieres World War Z

Brad Pitt has shown his new film World War Z to VIP guests at a special screening

Brad Pitt has premiered his high anticipated zombie movie World War Z in New York and New Jersey.

The star of the film held a star-studded screening at New York's museum of modern art, MoMa, to premiere the film, reported the New York Post.

Guests who joined him for the horror flick included Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Oliver Stone, Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Jimmy Fallon, Darren Aronofsky, Sting and Trudie Styler.

The Moneyball actor reportedly told the audience that he was humbled at seeing so many of his friends in the room and even felt shy at some of the big names that turned up.

Brad's partner Angelina Jolie did not attend the after party, but the guest list was still impressive with Julianna Margulies, Ryan Murphy, Marina Abramovic and Ashley Olsen all making an appearance.

Brad left the party at 10.30pm to hop over to New Jersey, where he made a surprise appearance at two fan cinema screenings.

He told an excited crowd: "We can't do it without showing it to the people we made the film for. You gotta do a screening for the fans. So we decided no better place to do that than New Jersey."

World War Z, about a race to defeat a zombie pandemic sweeping the globe, is released on June 21.
