The stylish trailer for Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead film for Netflix has dropped, and it features some cool-looking zombie-movie action.
Army of the Dead follows a group of mercenaries who attempt to steal hundreds of millions of dollars from a Las Vegas bank safe.
They have to go through a quarantine zone filled with zombies – intelligent zombies – to complete the job.
Dave Bautista leads the cast of this unique zombie/crime movie hybrid, and it looks like a lot of fun.
There’s plenty of style here, with thoughtful attention paid to the production and character design, being a Zack Snyder film.
Snyder made his directing debut with a zombie movie, 2004’s Dawn of the Dead remake, which was excellent, so it will be interesting to see where he takes Army of the Dead story-wise.
Will there be some social commentary throughout it like Dawn?
Or will it be an all-out action assault on the senses like the trailer would suggest?
Either way is acceptable, though it would be nice if the film had a thought-provoking story to go with its flashy design and gung ho action.
Army of the Dead features a supporting cast that includes Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, Matthias Schweighofer, Nora Arnezeder, Hiroyuki Sanada, Raul Castillo, Michael Cassidy and Garrett Dillahunt.
See it exclusively on Netflix from 21 May 2021.
