“World War Z” is going to be getting a healthy dose of the Grammy-winning band Muse. Not only will two of the band’s songs be featured in the film, but Muse will also perform at the movie’s upcoming London premiere.
Paramount Pictures has revealed that two tracks from Muse’s album “The 2nd Law,” which debuted in 2012, will be featured in the movie. Muse has been featured prominently in a film before, as the band also had a big presence in “Twilight” back in 2008.
As part of their collaboration with “World War Z,” Muse will also be performing after the London premiere of the film on June 2. Tickets for the live event will go on sale on May 28 at 9 a.m. BST. The concert will take place at Horse Guards Parade Ground at St. James’s Park.
This isn’t the first time the folks behind “World War Z” have tried to include fans in the movie’s promotion. Star Brad Pitt recently surprised viewers with an early screening of “World War Z” in New Jersey because it was a location featured in the film.
“I said OK but we can’t do it without showing it to the people we made the film for,” Pitt said. “We got to do a screening for the fans, so we decided there’s no better place to do that than Jersey.”
