What happens in Vegas, slays in Vegas.
In an action-packed trailer released Tuesday for Zack Snyder’s upcoming zombie movie “Army of the Dead,” a group of mercenaries looks to steal $200 million from a casino vault in zombie-overrun Las Vegas.
But the ragtag crew, including leader Scott (Dave Bautista), are going to need a lot of luck as they battle a smarter, faster and organized faction of the undead, which includes an all-shook-up zombie Elvis Presley impersonator and a ferocious, matted zombie tiger.
“Justice League” impresario Snyder, who wrote and directed the new project, earlier this year called “Army” a “full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie” in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. No argument there, based on the tantalizing teaser.
The movie also stars “Power” stars Omari Hardwick and Ana de la Reguera, Ella Purnell (“Sweetbitter”), comedian Tig Notaro (“Star Trek: Discovery”), Raúl Castillo (“Atypical”), Samantha Win (“Justice League”), Garret Dillahunt (“Fear the Walking Dead”), Nora Arnezeder (“Mozart in the Jungle”), Theo Rossi (“Luke Cage”), Matthias Schweighöfer (“You Are Wanted”) and Huma Qureshi (“Leila”).
“Army of the Dead” will premiere in select theaters on May 14 and will be available to stream on Netflix starting May 21.
