Zack Snyder's Army Of The Dead Trailer Delivers Wild Action And Zombie Tigers

The zombie heist movie stars Dave Bautista and it hits Netflix on May 21.


The new trailer for Army of the Dead has been released. The zombie action movie is directed by Zack Snyder and it hits Netflix on May 21.

February's first Army of the Dead teaser was packed with cool imagery but didn't contain much in the way of plot or dialogue. However, this one focuses more on the storyline. Dave Bautista plays a former soldier who is hired to assemble a crew to perform a safe heist on a Las Vegas casino. The big problem is that this all takes place after a zombie apocalypse, so the team must contend with thousands of ravenous undead roaming the streets of Vegas. These aren't all standard zombies either--Army of the Dead features highly-developed "organized" zombies who command the more brainless variety. Oh, and there's a zombie tiger in there too. Check the trailer out below:

Army of the Dead also stars Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, Garret Dillahunt, Omari Hardwick, Theo Rossi, and Tig Notaro. It's directed and co-written by Snyder, who started writing it back in 2004, shortly after he directed the remake of the zombie classic Dawn of the Dead. It spent many years trapped in development before Netflix stepped in to finance it.

The movie is also set to kick off an Army of the Dead franchise for Netflix. A prequel movie with the imaginative title Army of the Dead: The Prequel was shot in Germany last fall and directed by Matthias Schweighöfer, one of the actors in Snyder's film.

There's also an animated spin-off titled Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas on the way. The voice cast for that includes Christian Slater, Joe Manganiello, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jena Malone. Neither the movie or series have release dates yet.
