The highly positive first reactions to Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead hit earlier today, and Netflix (via Bloody Disgusting) has now released five new clips from the highly-anticipated zombie heist movie.
Most of the minute-long clips focus on Scott Ward (Dave Bautista) assembling his Las Vengeance crew as they prepare to infiltrate the shambler-infested Sin City, but we do get a few seconds of undead action as they team lays eyes on that much-discussed zombie tiger.
We also have some exciting casting news for fans of Rian Johnson's Knives Out, as Army of the Dead star Dave Bautista is set to reteam with Spectre co-star Daniel Craig for the upcoming sequel. Plot details are still under wraps, but we do know that Benoit Blanc will return "to solve another mystery revolving around a large cast of suspects." There are no details on Bautista's role.
Check out the clips below along with an updates synopsis, and let us know what you think in the comments.
“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 displaced Vegas local, former zombie war hero who’s now flipping burgers on the outskirts of the town he now calls home, 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.
Driven by the hope that the payoff could help pave the way to a reconciliation with his estranged daughter Kate (Ella Purnell), Ward takes on the challenge, assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist. They include Maria Cruz (Ana de la Reguera), an ace mechanic and Ward’s old friend; Vanderohe (Omari Hardwick), a zombie killing machine; Marianne Peters (Tig Notaro), a cynical helicopter pilot; Mikey Guzman (Raúl Castillo), a go-for-broke influencer and Chambers (Samantha Win), his ride-or-die; Martin (Garret Dillahunt), the casino’s head of security; a badass warrior known as the Coyote (Nora Arnezeder) who recruits Burt Cummings (Theo Rossi), a slimy security guard; and a brilliant German safe cracker named Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer).
Scott finds an unexpected emotional hurdle when Kate joins the expedition to search for Geeta (Huma S. Qureshi), a mother who’s gone missing inside the city. With a ticking clock, a notoriously impenetrable vault, and a smarter, faster horde of Alpha zombies closing in, only one thing’s for certain in the greatest heist ever attempted: survivors take all.”
Army of the Dead chomps its way onto Netflix on May 21.
