Netflix’s ‘Army of the Dead’ trailer teases a big twist for Zack Snyder’s zombies

Netflix has just released the first full trailer for Zack Snyder's zombie heist film Army of the Dead

The action-packed three-minute long trailer released Tuesday (April 13) gives fans a better idea of what to expect from the movie, and from what we’ve seen so far it looks like it’s going to be epic.

Days before the trailer’s release, the Justice League director hinted at a big twist on social media.

“They are not who you think they are,” Snyder posted on Twitter along with new poster art. 

Army of the Dead follows a group of mercenaries who attempt a heist at a Las Vegas casino during an undead uprising, with Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) leading the charge as Scott Ward.

The film is set amid "a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted." 

“Following a plague that’s been released from Nevada's secretive Area 51 military base, the US government has managed to contain the outbreak by building a wall around an overrun Sin City. But there's still all that cash in zombie-infested casinos, if only somebody is brave (or dumb) enough to try and go and get it.”

The cast also features Ella Purnell, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Huma Qureshi, Omari Hardwick, Tig Notaro, Hiroyuki Sanada, Garret Dillahunt, Matthias Schweighöfer, Raúl Castillo, Nora Arnezeder, and Samantha Win.

It looks like the team will be facing off against a very different breed of zombies compared to the usual mindless, shambling type. "Smarter, faster, and more organized," the undead in the upcoming flick exhibit some pretty human qualities.

Check out the awesome full trailer below.

Army of the Dead will be released in select theaters on May 14 and will stream on Netflix starting May 21, 2021.
