Netflix has announced a release date for the upcoming Zack Snyder’s Army Of The Dead movie and it will premiere on the streaming service on 21 May 2021.
The synopsis reads:
“Following a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, a group of mercenaries take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.”
It boasts an ensemble cast featuring Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Matthias Schweighöfer, Nora Arnezeder, Hiroyuki Sanada, Garret Dillahunt, Tig Notaro, Raúl Castillo, Huma Qureshi, Samantha Win, Richard Cetrone and Michael Cassidy.
Speaking with EW (via Bloody Disgusting), Snyder described the film:
“It is a full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie, so it’s genre-on-genre in a great way.
So you expect pure zombie mayhem, and you get that, 100 percent.
But also you get these really amazing characters on a fantastic journey.
It’s going to surprise people that there’s a lot of warmth and real emotion with these great characters.”
Snyder isn’t a stranger to zombie films, as he previously directed the 2004 Dawn Of The Dead remake, which was also his directorial debut.
The first Army Of The Dead trailer will drop this Thursday on 25 February 2021.
