Zack Snyder‘s latest cinematic effort Army of the Dead received a brand new poster painting a vivid picture of the Zombie Heist movie. The art of advertising appears to serve as the forerunner of a full-length trailer following the one-minute teaser in February.
In a world where Las Vegas is deadlocked for a zombie outbreak, Army of the Dead finds an ensemble led by Dave Bautista breaking into the city for the biggest raid of their lives for the rest of society was sealed off. The poster takes advantage of the vibrant, neon-lit casino environment and sets the stars of the film – Bautista, Ella Purnell, Matthias Schweighofer, Omari Hardwick and Ana de la Reguera – in the centre. The playful but gloomy images are rightly accompanied by the badass slogan “ALWAYS BET ON DEAD”.

The rest of the cast, including Theo Rossi, Tig Notaro, Nora Arnezeder, Hiroyuki Sanada and Garret Dillahunt, noticeably missing on the latest poster. Their exclusion may suggest their roles are less common, but either way, hopefully they’ll help make a splash in the next trailer. Which, by the way, should be on the way if the time of the poster drop has to be taken into account. The movie is still two months away, but fans are asking for more footage and we all know Snyder is pretty good at giving them what they want.
The director held back from promoting the film in March, which was eagerly awaited Zack Snyder’s Justice League Debut streaming on HBO Max. Army of the Dead is the reference to a totally original franchise for Netflix that has already spawned an anime-style animated series with subtitles Lost Vegas and an untitled live-action prequel with Schweighöfer. Snyder, of course, produces both projects where familiar faces repeat their roles from Army of the Dead and new ones reuniting with the director, including Deathstroke himself Joe Manganiello.
Army of the Dead hits Netflix and select theaters on May 21. Check out the stylish poster below:
