“Army of the Dead” – The Trailer, Another Poster and Craig’s Thoughts!

A new poster and a trailer for Army of the Dead are here.

I like that the poster is using art rather than photos.  It makes me want to know about the movie which is what a poster should do.

I’m going to be the first to admit that I had concerns that Army of the Dead was going to have too much humor for my taste.  I was also concerned when I heard that Army of the Dead would have “smart” zombies.  The trailer has relieved me of those concerns.  I thought there was just the right amount (as in a touch) of humor in the trailer.  If the movie keeps the same scare to laugh ratio we’re in good shape.  These zombies aren’t mindless and aren’t zombies in the traditional George Romero sense, but that’s okay.  I loved 28 days later and they weren’t Romero zombies either.

I can’t wait to see Army of the Dead!

From filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, 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 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. With little left to lose, Ward takes on the challenge, assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist. 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.
