From filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Zack Snyder’s Justice League), 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 stars Dave Bautista (My Spy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 & 2), Ella Purnell (“Belgravia”, “Sweetbitter”), Omari Hardwick (Sorry To Bother You, Nobody’s Fool), Ana De La Reguera (Cowboys & Aliens, “Narcos”), Theo Rossi (“Sons of Anarchy”, “Marvel’s Luke Cage”), Matthias Schweighöfer (What A Man, The Most Beautiful Day), Nora Arnezeder (What The Day Owes The Night, Safe House), Hiroyuki Sanada (47 Ronin, The Last Samurai), and Garret Dillahunt (“Fear The Walking Dead“, The Last House on the Left).
The film also stars Tig Notaro (“Star Trek: Discovery”, Lucy in the Sky), Raúl Castillo (We The Animals, El Chicano), Huma Qureshi (Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 1 & 2, Dedh Ishqiya), Samantha Win (“Mortal Combat: Legacy”, Wonder Woman), Richard Cetrone (Ghosts of Mars, Man of Steel), and Michael Cassidy (The Dare Project, “Men at Work”).
The film is directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Man of Steel). The screenplay was written by Zack Snyder, Shay Hatten (John Wick: Chapter 3), and Joby Harold (Edge of Tomorrow, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword), based on a story by Zack Snyder.
