What happens in zombie-ridden Las Vegas stays in zombie-ridden Las Vegas. 

Netflix have released the first full trailer for Zack Snyder’s new zombie-heist flick Army of the Dead. The movie follows a crew of thieves and soldiers as they race against time to pull off a heist in Las Vegas before the entire place is nuked. You know, because it’s overrun by zombies. Did I forget to mention the zombies?

Watch the trailer below:

The trailer introduces the heist first. War veteran and part-time cook Scott Ward (played by Dave Bautista) is approached by a man who wants him to pull off an incredibly dangerous mission: go under the Las Vegas strip and rob a vault that’s filled with US$200 million in cash. What makes this so dangerous is the fact that a zombie outbreak has been contained within Las Vegas, and the US government plans to nuke the entire place to hell. 

Ward assembles a crew of thieves and experienced fighters for the heist, but they’ll have to deal with an unexpected problem - the zombies are smart. These are not the braindead, shambling, rotting corpses one might be used to in other zombie flicks. They’re strong, fast, capable of dodging attacks and united under a mysterious leader supernaturally. Also, there are zombie tigers. 

In summary: a deadly heist in Las Vegas, hyper-intelligent zombies and a limited window of time before everything gets nuked. Easy peasy. Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana de la Reguera, Tig Notaro, Hiroyuki Sanada and more star. Zack Snyder (of Justice League and Dawn of the Dead fame) directed the film and co-wrote it with Shay Hatten (John Wick 3).

Army of the Dead will hit Netflix on 21 May, 2021.
