In an effort to drum up buzz for its summer zombie pic, Paramount, along with Regal Entertainment Group, has introduced a first of its kind "mega ticket" for Brad Pitt's "World War Z."

For $50, fans in five U.S. cities will screen the film two days prior to its official release and receive an HD digital copy of the film when it becomes available. The package also includes one small popcorn, a pair of custom RealD 3-D glasses and one official full-size, limited-edition movie poster.
