Brad Pitt's new zombie film gets its first screening in Cornwall.

Scenes for World War Z were shot in Falmouth back in 2011

A special showing is being put on in the town for locals, including hundreds who were extras.

Jack Reed from Truro is one of them but is not sure what to expect on screen: "We really couldn't piece what was going on. It was virtually just walking round the boat pretending there were helicopters everywhere. They didn't really give that much away to be fair. There were loads of different things like you'd be fined if you spoke to journalists at the time, it was nuts! It was a really well kept secret.

"In one of the scenes I filmed quite close to him (Brad Pitt) so that was quite a good experience but he's not too much of a talkative bloke, as you can imagine. He actually had a body double so he wouldn't do anything until it was perfect with everyone else, all the extras and everybody were in place then he'd turn up, do the scene and go, off to his lovely boat offshore."

Town centre manager Richard Gates is hoping the release will mean another boost for the town:

"Not to the same extent, it was about three million pounds into the local economy when we did the filming. But people remember it, will want to see it, will want to associate with the film and it's actually coming out a day earlier in Falmouth.

"Of course it's beneficial to the town, and not just to Falmouth but to Cornwall as well. We worked as hard as we possibly could to accommodate everything that they were looking for and we had some very, very positive feedback from them afterwards. It was a lot of work, but it was good fun, a great privilege to have been involved in."
