Zack Snyder’s ‘Army of the Dead’: Everything We Know So Far

A group of mercenaries tries to rob a casino's vault during a zombie outbreak.

What would you do in case of a zombie outbreak? Some of us may get too preoccupied running away from the living dead, while others might want to hit the supermarket or the nearest mall to loot for supplies.

Zack Snyder's upcoming flick, 'Army of the Dead,' is going bigger, even in dangerous times like this. Snyder (who directed Dawn of the Dead) is revisiting his zombie roots after securing a $90 million budget from Netflix with 'Army of the Dead,' which is set to be Netflix’s summer blockbuster.

Here are all the exciting details you need to know.

When Will 'Army of the Dead' Release On Netflix?

'Army of the Dead' is coming on Netflix on Friday, May 21st, 2021.

Zack Snyder announced the release date back in February, along with a chilling poster on Twitter.

The film will be available to Netflix subscribers worldwide.

Warner Brothers previously held the rights to 'Army of the Dead,' but Netflix eventually ended up picking it up after WB refuses to spend that big on another zombie film.

“They [Warner Brothers] didn’t want to spend that kind of money on a zombie movie or just didn’t take it that seriously. I was always like, ‘Look guys, this is more than just a zombie movie,’ but it fizzled out," Snyder told Entertainment Weekly.



 

What Is The Plot Of 'Army of the Dead'?

The film follows a group of mercenaries who attempts to pull a heist on a casino in Las Vegas amidst a zombie outbreak that's turned the city into a quarantine zone.

Zack Snyder revealed that the upcoming film is an intimate and personal project that wasn't made by the committee.

"I’ve tried to get at it in a super- intimate, personal way. It’s not made by committee. It’s definitely a movie that’s incredibly personal and singular. From the first conceptualizing of the movie, they were going to be these evolved zombies [that are] semi-conscious. We treat them kind of like wolves, sort of like a dog. They’re not necessarily fully realized and talk or anything. But they can organize," Snyder told Total Film.
