Who doesn't like a good zombie movie? If thats you then Netflix today presents the first trailer for director Zack Snyder's new movie Army Of The Dead.
This is the first new movie from the director since the controversy and personal tragedy surrounding his time with the original theatrical version of Justice League.
It good to see Snyder move away from the DC Universe for a new movie and this looks fantastic, the movie is set in Las Vegas and is a heist movie mixed in with the zombie mayhem, all in the tradition of George A. Romero's Day Of The Dead.
The movie was shot entirely on digital and there is a real feeling of a video game look and feel in many parts of the trailer which is maybe intentional, but I can see myself reaching for the Playstation controller occasionally!
It also cant be ignored the parallels between the story of a disease dominating a large city and the current global pandemic, but maybe I'm reading more into it than necessary?
The movie hits Netflix on May 21st and wont be hitting cinemas, and on a side note we are also getting Zack Snyder's 4 hours cut of Justice League on HBO Max in the US and other streaming services worldwide on March 18th.

The story centres around a war veteran who is struggling to re-establish himself into society and starts robbing banks.
A hard hitting drama the trailer looks at the romance in the story before then hitting you with the horrors of war and the reality of coming home after seeing things you never dreamed of.
Along side Holland is Ciara Bravo who is the love interest in a movie which is far removed from the Marvel Universe for both Holland and The Russo Brothers.
The movie gets a March 12th release on Apple TV.
