Dave Bautista Faces a Zombie Horde in Army of the Dead Trailer

Netflix has finally dropped the official trailer for Army of the Dead. Zack Snyder’s fans will be happy that their favorite director not only finished the long-awaited Zack Snyder’s Justice League this year, but also shot a zombie movie in the meantime. The freshly released images give us a taste of what’s coming next. In the story, someone makes Dave Bautista’s Scott Ward an offer that he can’t refuse. Together with a band of ruthless mercenaries, Scott will have to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted. Too bad that the money is into a zombie-infested quarantine zone. And the inhabitants don’t appreciate the intruders’ visit. And they have zombie tigers.

Joby Harold and Shay Hatten penned the story was conceived by Snyder. The rather lengthy official synopsis for Army of the Dead reads:

“From filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Zack Snyder’s Justice League), Army of the Dead takes place following a zombie outbreak that has left Las Vegas in ruins and walled off from the rest of the world. When Scott Ward (Dave Bautista), a displaced Vegas local, former zombie war hero who’s now flipping burgers on the outskirts of the town he now calls home, is approached by casino boss Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada), it’s with the ultimate proposition: Break into the zombie-infested quarantine zone to retrieve $200 million sitting in a vault beneath the strip before the city is nuked by the government in 32 hours. Driven by the hope that the payoff could help pave the way to a reconciliation with his estranged daughter Kate (Ella Purnell), Ward takes on the challenge, assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist.”

“They include Maria Cruz (Ana de la Reguera), an ace mechanic and Ward’s old friend; Vanderohe (Omari Hardwick), a zombie killing machine; Marianne Peters (Tig Notaro), a cynical helicopter pilot; Mikey Guzman (Raúl Castillo), a go-for-broke influencer and Chambers (Samantha Win), his ride-or-die; Martin (Garret Dillahunt), the casino’s head of security; a badass warrior known as the Coyote (Nora Arnezeder) who recruits Burt Cummings (Theo Rossi), a slimy security guard; and a brilliant German safe cracker named Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer). Scott finds an unexpected emotional hurdle when Kate joins the expedition to search for Geeta (Huma S. Qureshi), a mother who’s gone missing inside the city. With a ticking clock, a notoriously impenetrable vault, and a smarter, faster horde of Alpha zombies closing in, only one thing’s for certain in the greatest heist ever attempted: survivors take all.”
