Do you feel the deep-seated need to gnaw on someone’s brain? Maybe you are a zombie. Or maybe you are finally so bored in quarantine that you contemplate unspeakable acts of cannibalism. Either way, you’d probably want to check out the trailer for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Netflix movie, Army of the Dead. Why? Because zombies will never be uncool. Therefore.
Today Netflix released the first full trailer for the upcoming directed Zack Snyder Army of the DeadWhy? Well, it will be on the streamer in a month. Plus, it’s always good to jump on the fame of other projects. People are still talking about the Snyder Cut of the Justice LeagueNow is a great time to pump up Army of the Dead
What’s Army of the Dead about?
It’s like a heist movie and a zombie movie. In all honesty, it’s not a bad idea. Army of the Dead is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a zombie outbreak has turned Las Vegas into a ghost town. Well, zombie city. It appears to have been largely quarantined from the rest of the world. But what people really want is the $ 200 million USD that’s under the strip.
A group of mercenaries is brought in to handle the robbery. Of course, as the trailer above shows, these zombies aren’t mindless creatures. They are smart, fast and, most horrifying, organizedIn fact, they seem to have some form of human feeling and compassion. Good for their fellow zombie, anyway. We saw that forehead touch. Will our team be able to complete the heist without dying?
Someone is probably going to die. Accept it. Love it. It’s the way of the world in a zombie movie.
Who’s in the cast?
Army of the Dead has quite a large cast. Our main characters form (names of mentioned characters are in brackets) are Dave Bautista (Scott Ward), Ana de la Reguera (Cruz), Garret Dillahunt (Martin), Ella Purnell (Kate Ward), Omari Hardwick (Vanderohe), Hiroyuki Sanada (Hunter Bly), Theo Rossi (Burt Cummings), Mattias Schweighofer (Ludwig Dieter), and Tig Notaro (Marianne Peters).
Notaro basically replaced Chris D’Elia Army of the Dead after he was found to be a garbage man following claims of sexual misconduct. Zack Snyder directed the film and co-wrote the script with Shay Hatten and Joby Harold. This brings Snyder back to the zombie movie genre when he directed the 2004 remake of Romero’s Dawn of the Dead
Funnily enough, if you’re looking for another weird connection to Dave Bautista, Guardians of the Universe director and writer James Gunn (who also directed and wrote the 2021s The suicide squad for DC Films) wrote the script for 2004 Dawn of the Dead. It really shows how small Hollywood is, huh?
Netflix predicts that Army of the Dead is going to be a big draw for them. In addition to the film, which will be released on May 21, the streamer also has a prequel anime series in development that focuses on the character of Bautista. Rest assured, should the movie succeed, we’ll likely hear about a sequel movie in the future. Call it a hunch.
We have to admit that anyway Army of the Dead looks like a lot of fun. The trailer continues the trend of action movies adding classic songs and making them a million times more BAMF. In the Army of the Dead trailer, the credit goes to Kenny Loggins’ actually depressing AF song “The Gambler”. (Which is probably an indication that they’re all going to die, huh?)
