Army Of Thieves Full Trailer Delivers Action, Humor, And Heists

The prequel to Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead hits Netflix in October.


The full trailer for Army of Thieves is here, arriving to Netflix on October 29. The movie is a prequel to Zack Snyder's zombie movie Army of the Dead.

The Army of Thieves trailer was revealed as part of Tudum, Netflix's virtual streaming fan event. The movie focuses on Ludwig Dieter, the safe-cracker played by Matthias Schweighöfer in Army of the Dead. The trailer starts with Dieter being recruited by Gwendoline (Game of Thrones' Nathalie Emmanuel), a member of a criminal gang who wants Dieter to help them with a daring triple-heist, using the unfolding zombie apocalypse as a distraction. The rest of the trailer delivers lots of quickly cut action and snappy dialogue, and it definitely looks like a very different movie to Snyder's over-the-top zombiefest. Check it out below:

This promo follows the first Army of Thieves teaser, which was revealed during Comic-Con@Home in July.

Army of Thieves also directed by Schweighöfer, and the supporting cast includes Stuart Martin (Babylon), Guz Khan (Man Like Mobeen), Jonathan Cohen (La Flamme), and Noémie Nakai (Never Let Me Go). It's written by Snyder and Shay Hatton, who also co-wrote Army of the Dead.

Army of Thieves isn't the only Army of the Dead spin-off heading to Netflix. There's also an animated show titled Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas in the works, with a voice-cast that includes Christian Slater, Vanessa Hudgens, Joe Manganiello, Tig Notaro, and Dave Bautista.
