May 23 (UPI) -- "There's no other place better than Jersey!" the 49-year-old movie star said when he showed up at an advance screening for his new film, "World War Z," in Hoboken, N.J., on Wednesday.

The crowd burst into cheers when Brad Pitt popped up on stage at Clearview Cinemas.

"We've got T-shirts for everyone, and we've got a massive film for you. It's epic, it's scary as hell, and I guarantee you it's the most intense thing you're gonna see all summer," the A-list movie star told the crowd.

“Brad wanted to make sure that the screening was for the fans, the people that he made the film for,” a source told JustJared.com. “The crowd went wild when he showed up and he had t-shirts to hand out to his fans. He made sure to give New Jersey a big shout out before the movie started!”

According to People, Pitt also attended a star-studded screening in New York at the Museum of Modern Art, where he mingled friends like Julianna Marguiles and Kyra Sedgwick.

Here's the trailer for Pitt's upcoming zombie flick, which opens June 21.
