Zack Snyder fans have been anxiously awaiting a first look at some footage from Army of the Dead, and the director has now announced that the first teaser trailer for his zombie heist movie will be online this Thursday, February 25, ahead of its premiere on Netflix on May 21.
Snyder also shared a new poster with the tagline "Survivors Take All." None of the cast are featured, only a bunch of zombies attempting to break into a heavily armoured vault.
While AOTD will no doubt deliver plenty of gory action, Snyder suggested that his film will be more character-based than many will be expecting in a recent interview.
"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."
The story focuses on a crew of mercenaries on a mission to plunder undead-infested Las Vegas, which has been surrounded by a massive wall in an attempt to keep a plague released from Area 51's military base at bay.
Army of the Dead marks Snyder's return to the genre after his well-received remake of George Romero's classic Dawn of the Dead. There's been some speculation that AOTD could be a direct sequel, since Snyder has previously referred to it as a "spiritual successor" to his 2006 film.
There is also an Army of the Dead anime in the works that'll focus on Dave Bautista's character, Scott Ward, and the events surrounding the zombie outbreak.
