Zack Snyder has revealed an awesome new neon-style poster for his upcoming movie Army of the Dead. The poster was created to fit the Las Vegas backdrop of the movie. I’ve liked what I’ve seen from this movie so far and I like to see how it progressed, it can be a real blockbuster.
The movie follows a group of mercenaries into a zombie-infested Las Vegas as they try to pull off the biggest heist ever tried. It’s set amid “a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.“
The story is based on one “capable hero who assembles a team of undesirables to infiltrate an impregnable fortress (in this case, a Las Vegas casino) during an undead uprising.” That protagonist is played by Dave Bautista, and he will be joined by Ella Purnell, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Huma Qureshi, Omari Hardwick, Tig Notaro, Hiroyuki Sanada, Garret Dillahunt, Matthias Schweighöfer, Raúl Castillo, Nora Arnezeder, and Samantha Win.
It’s also revealed that “a plague has been released from Nevada’s secretive Area 51 military base. The U.S. government has managed to contain the outbreak by building a wall around an overrun Sin City. But there’s still all that cash in zombie-infested casinos, if only somebody is brave (or dumb) enough to try to go and get it.”
Snyder also said previously, “It is a full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie, so it’s genre-on-genre in a great way. So you expect pure zombie mayhem, and you get that, 100 percent. But also you get these really amazing characters on a fantastic journey. It’s going to surprise people that there’s a lot of warmth and real emotion with these great characters.”
Army of the Dead will be released on Netflix on May 21st, 2021.
