A lot of people will agree that Dawn of the Dead (2004) was one of the few good remakes out there, which by the way followed Night of the Living Dead (1990) which was also a good remake. Zack Snyder originally intended to film a sequel, Army of the Dead, which was cut off because of his Watchmen project.
Of course the 2004 movie got a de-facto follow up, but no-one, rightly, wants to even remember that. Now though the movie is in the can and new pics can be seen below.
Of the movie, Snyder tells EW this week;
“It is a full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie, so it’s genre-on-genre in a great way. So you expect pure zombie mayhem, and you get that, 100 percent. But also you get these really amazing characters on a fantastic journey. It’s going to surprise people that there’s a lot of warmth and real emotion with these great characters.”
He also promised commentary on a ‘jingoistic’ president and immigration, as well as consumerism. Unfortunately the series has a history of virtue signalling subtext, not least from George Romero himself.
