Everyone is talking about Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League, but this is probably going to be the better movie by him this year. Above is the latest trailer for Army of the Dead. The film stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, Garret Dillahunt, Raúl Castillo, Omari Hardwick, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tig Notaro and Matthias Schweighöfer.
Synopsis: 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.
Key ingredients seem to be here: Zombies crossed with a heist, a director who actually made a good remake of Dawn of the Dead, a good cast and a strong budget. This movie isn’t a sequel to Dawn of the Dead, although it was originally touted as one when it was announced in 2008, but then again even George Romero’s movies were not direct sequels to one another.
The ‘intelligent zombies’ thing seems like it could be a problem however.
The movie is released on May 21st on Netflix.
