New 'Army of the Dead' Clip Teases New Type of Zombies
“They’re smarter. They’re faster. They’re organized.”
With roughly three weeks to go until its release on Netflix, Zack Snyder‘s Army of the Dead has dropped a new teaser shedding more light on a new species of undead.
Known as “The Alphas,” the short clip describes them as something “straight out of your nightmares.” Unlike conventional zombies, the alphas are smarter, faster, and have the ability to organize themselves, making them formidable opponents against Dave Bautista and his squad. Snyder had previously discussed his concept of zombies evolving: “You see normal zombies and then you see some robot zombies. Are they monitors that the government has placed among the zombies to monitor them? Are they technology from the other world? What’s happening there?”
Joining Bautista on this zombie heist blockbuster are Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana de la Reguera, Theo Rossi, Matthias Schweighöfer, Nora Arnezeder, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tig Notaro, Raúl Castillo, Huma Qureshi, Samantha Win, Michael Cassidy, Richard Cetrone, Garret Dillahunt and Hiroyuki Sanada, who came fresh out of Mortal Kombat.
For those interested, Army of the Dead arrives on Netflix May 21.
