With all the attention paid to his cut of Justice League, it can be easy to forget that Zack Snyder has another film headed our way this year – post-apocalyptic zombie action thriller Army Of The Dead. New images are online from the Netflix film and you can see them in the gallery lower down the page.
Having sat on Snyder’s To Do list since at least the days of Watchmen, the film has a script by the director, Shay Hatten and Joby Harold. The story finds Ella Purnell’s Kate headed into a dangerous, quarantined Las Vegas, site of a zombie outbreak, intending to discover the source of the undead problem. When she becomes trapped in the zone, her dad (Dave Bautista) assembles a group of mercenaries to help rescue her, with the gang tempted by the chance to rob the casinos while they’re there.
Netflix has yet to announce an official launch date for the movie beyond “summer 2021”. A prequel film and anime spin-off are both in the works. We’d be shocked if a teaser trailer didn’t follow soon.
