Justice League director Zack Snyder has been making major waves ever since his cut of the DC film was released on HBO Max. A new trailer of his new film on Netflix has proven the director’s prowess. The second trailer for Army of the Dead has left fans hyped up.
The new trailer of Army of the Dead, the movie is featuring evolved zombies. A band of thieves needs to retrieve $200 million in the vault beneath the strip. The twist is that the place is swarmed with many zombies.
However, the zombies that were introduced in the trailer were not the usual mindless ones. Snyder’s Army of the Dead zombies are organized, smarter, and faster. They look cunning and menacing. Other zombie films would have the characters killing them and they don’t simply dodge the bullets. In the upcoming movie, the zombies fight back and can defend themselves.
The Netflix film will be Snyder’s first post-DCEU project. The highly-anticipated film just came in the heels of the successful release of Snyder’s Justice League in March. The zombie flick’s first trailer gave a glimpse of Las Vegas ravaged by zombies. It introduced the mercenaries aiming to look for the millions of money they must recover. Meanwhile, the second trailer showed what the zombies can do and how much threat they pose.
Snyder is not a stranger in the zombie genre. His directorial debut was a remake of the Dawn of the Dead which was originally a George A. Romero. This is Snyder’s return to the zombie genre which has been highly anticipated ever since it was announced.
Army of the Dead will stream via Netflix on May 21, 2021.
