The trailer shown by Netflix is light on footage from the film, but it does give us a glimpse of the zombie mayhem that awaits us as Bautista and his mercenaries face off against a giant horde of zombies.
Army of the Dead will premiere on May 21 on Netflix, marking Snyder’s return to the zombie genre for the first time since he made his directorial debut with the well-received remake of Dawn of the Dead. But, if you haven’t seen the trailer check it out below.
The funny thing about this movie with actor Dave Bautista, is that he recently explained how he had been pitching “for years” to be on The Walking Dead, and this movie allowed him to eliminate that zombie anxiety.
“For me, there had to be something special about a zombie movie for me to sign in. What sets us apart is the heist. But there are a lot of different layers to this movie.”
