The First Teaser for Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead” is Here

Most of the buzz around Zack Snyder these days has been about his upcoming Justice League refresh. Snyder’s second crack at DC’s biggest superhero film has understandably garnered a lot of attention, but he’s got another big movie coming out for Netflix, and it’s worth paying attention to. Behold, the first teaser for Snyder’s zombie flick Army of the Dead, which mashes two beloved cinematic genres into one epic—it’s a zombie heist movie.

Army of the Dead imagines what would happen if a zombie outbreak occurred in Las Vegas, and the folks most likely to survive it decided to go all-in for the biggest cash grab of their lives instead. The film stars Dave Bautista as Scott Ward, the leader of a group of mercenaries who are risking life and limb to push into the zombie quarantine zone in order to pull off a once-in-a-lifetime score. Snyder’s no newcomer to the zombie genre—his 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead was quite excellent. While the teaser is brief, it offers a glimpse of the world Snyder has created here. If you think the aesthetic will be like his superhero films—darker tones, lashing rain, gloomy—think again. Army of the Dead is set in the glitziest city in America, and Vegas still sparkles and shines even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

Check out the teaser below. Army of the Dead arrives on Netflix on May 21, 2021.

Here’s the brief synopsis from Netflix:

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.
