ARMY OF THE DEAD Director Zack Snyder Unveils First Official Stills From His Zombie Heist Movie

Netflix's Army of the Dead is set to premiere later this year, and Zack Snyder has now unveiled two first-look stills from his "zombie heist movie." See Dave Bautista and the rest of the cast right here...

The first trailer for Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead is expected to debut later this month, and the writer-director has now unveiled two official stills via EW.

The first spotlights Dave Bautista's character Scott Ward and Ella Purnell as his sister(?) Kate, and we also have a look at most of the main cast assembled for a shot with definite James Cameron's Aliens vibes. 

These guys won't be hunting Xenomorphs, though, as Army of the Dead is a "full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie."

"So you expect pure zombie mayhem, and you get that, 100 percent," Snyder tells EW. "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."

ARMY OF THE DEAD

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 and the events surrounding the zombie outbreak.
