Zack Snyder’s Army Of The Dead Teaser Trailer Released

This past Sunday, Snyder tweeted the poster for the upcoming movie while also revealing its May 21st release date on Netflix. He also teased that the teaser trailer was coming soon. The teaser trailer for Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead arrived online this morning.

Snyder has had his hands full with DC films the past several years. Army of the Dead will be his first film post-DC projects. It’ll combine the zombie genre with a heist. A team led by Guardians of The Galaxy’s Dave Bautista will break into a casino vault in Las Vegas during a zombie apocalypse.

“It is a full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie, so it’s genre-on-genre in a great way,” Snyder told Entertainment Weekly. “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.”

“With Dawn, we made a zombie movie but tried to do it all the way with all of those tropes of the genre,” the director added. “That was so fun, so I started to think of what were other genres that story didn’t have room for. It’s this tone where you have fun with the genre but you don’t make fun of the genre — it’s a fine line.”

During Snyder’s interview with 1 Minutemen, he said that he had always enjoyed shooting things himself like commercials in the past, but as he took on larger scale film projects throughout his career, being behind the camera became less. With Army of the Dead, he got the opportunity to shoot the film himself.

“When I made TV commercials, I was the director-cameraman. You know, for 12 years, and pretty much not every job but most of the jobs I shot myself. And I just really enjoy it,” Snyder said. “And really, part of the reason is that you know, the bigger the movies got, the further away you get from the camera. The more infrastructure there is between you and the sort of cinematic experience. You don’t touch the world as closely.”

He continued, “And so, I just felt like with Army it was a great opportunity to just get really close to the photography and to the actors. Frankly, everyone’s like ‘how can you shoot the movie and direct the movie’ and I’m like it’s incredibly easy because the actors are like right there and conversation is easy. The pace is easy because I can just work that way. It’s just really nice.”

Snyder continued to explain he worked with his friend and longtime camera operator, John Clothier on the film.

“It was really one of the best, really most satisfying sort of experiences I’ve had making a movie, as far as that aspect of it goes,” Snyder said.

Army of the Dead is set to debut on May 21st on Netflix. Joining Dave Bautista on the zombie-heist film are Ana de la Reguera, Ella Purnell, Garret Dillahunt (Fear The Walking Dead), Raul Castillo, Omari Hardwick (Power), Hiroyuki Sanada (Mortal Kombat), Tig Notaro, and Matthias Schweighofer.
