Capsule synopsis from the studio:

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. [Mireille] Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; [Daniella] Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.
Um... that's nothing like the book.
Ugh! Don't they have enough confidence in the material to just adapt it, as is? The book certainly didn't lack dramatic oomph, just because the narratives were being told "in the past" after the danger was over.

At least they left the zombie pandemic ...
We're lucky they didn't change it to vampires, who are also giant transforming robots.
