Although Zack Snyder may have dominated headlines for Justice League, Army of the Dead is teasing to up the ante. The zombie flick is teasing to be one of this year’s most insane action flicks, revolving around a team of mercenaries who are tasked to pull off a heist in zombie-infested Las Vegas.
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 former zombie war hero who’s now flipping burgers on the outskirts of the town, 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.
With little left to lose, Ward takes on the challenge, assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist. With a ticking clock, a notoriously impenetrable vault, and a smarter, faster horde of Alpha zombies closing in, only one thing is for certain in the greatest heist ever attempted: survivors take all.
Joining Bautista in this zombie romp are Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Tig Notaro, Nora Arnezeder, and Garret Dillahunt. Army of the Dead premieres on Netflix on 21 May 2021.
