Netflix has released a new poster for Army of the Dead, the upcoming action-horror zombie film from Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, BvS and, yes, Justice League filmmaker Zack Snyder.

The one sheet below arrives head of the first trailer, which Netflix will be dropping on Thursday in the US / likely Friday in Australia. We’ll get into the film in a sec, but first, that handsy poster…

Netflix

CAST:

Snyder’s first zombie film since his 2004 feature debut, Dawn of the Dead, Army of the Dead stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, Garret Dillahunt, Raúl Castillo, Omari Hardwick, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tig Notaro and Matthias Schweighöfer.

PLOT:

The plot centres around a group of mercenaries who, following a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, decide to venture into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted. Hence, the giant safe, casino chips, cash, cards and zombie hands on the poster above.

CHRIS D’ELIA:

Comedian Chris D’Elia was originally in the cast, but was cut out after allegations of inappropriate behaviour and underage grooming. Comedian Tig Notaro was brought in to replace his part, inserted in through a combination of reshooting scenes and digital compositing.

ARMY OF THE DEAD UNIVERSE:

Despite the fact that the film has yet to be released, Netflix and Snyder are certainly confident. As we reported on in September, an Army of the Dead universe is in the works; a live-action prequel movie will star and be directed by Schweighöfer, and there’s an anime series set to focus on Bautista’s badass character, Scott Ward.

RELEASE DATE: 

Army of the Dead will be streaming on Netflix from May 21st.

Stay tuned for that trailer!
