Netflix unveil an action-packed trailer for horror heist ‘Army of the Dead’

Streaming service giant Netflix has revealed the new trailer for director Zack Snyder’s next film, Army of the Dead, incorporating an intriguing mix of horror and heist.

The zombie flick is set in a world in which Las Vegas has been ravaged by the walking dead and subsequently walled off from the rest of the planet. However, Scott Ward (Dave Bautista), a displaced Vegas local, former zombie war hero is approached by casino boss Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada), 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 for a price.

Ward assembles a ragtag team of experts to help him with the heist, including 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).

Written by Zack Snyder, Shay Hatten, Joby Harold, Army of the Dead hits Netflix 21 May.
