While we wait for the “Snyder Cut” of Justice League, Zack Snyder is also gearing up for the release of his Netflix movie Army of the Dead, a franchise-starter that marks Snyder’s return to the zombie genre nearly twenty years(!) after his Dawn of the Dead remake. The movie is coming to Netflix on May 21, and the teaser trailer will bite onto the internet this Thursday.
In the meantime, you can check out a brand new behind the scenes shot below, which comes courtesy of Vanity Fair today. It gives us our first look at the zombies we’ll be meeting in Army of the Dead, and this one in particular is about to be blasted away by Dave Bautista…
Vanity Fair describes Army of the Dead as being “visceral, funny, and exceedingly dark.”
In the film…
“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.”
From the director of Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen, and Man of Steel, comes Army of the Dead, starring 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.
