Army of the Dead, Zach Snyder’s first film following his recut of Justice League is officially coming to Netflix on May 21, with a teaser to be released on Thursday February 25.
Snyder’s zombie flick will follow a group of mercenaries who, after a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, brave the quarantine zone to pull off the world’s greatest heist. The film is already a big deal with Netflix, as, despite the fact that the film has yet to be released, the streamer has already greenlit prequel and spin-off anime series. Although given the film’s all-star cast, including Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana De La Reguera, and Theo Rossi just to mention a few, it is unsurprising that Netflix is betting big on Army of the Dead.
As Snyder’s first film after a short break for family time, Army of the Dead is actually the director’s second zombie story. His first full length film, Dawn of the Dead, was released in 2004 and told the story of survivors of a zombie apocalypse who take shelter in a midwestern mall. It seems appropriate that after his vacation from filmmaking Snyder would return with another zombie story.
So if you enjoyed Dawn of the Dead, or you just need a zombie flick, be sure to check out the trailer for Army of the Dead on February 25 and watch the whole movie on Netflix on May 21.
