More than 15 years after he took us to the mall for some shopping, reflection, and living dead slaying in the remake of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead, Zack Snyder is bringing a new zombie story to undead life with Army of the Dead, and Netflix has unveiled a May 21st release date and teaser poster for the apocalyptic Las Vegas heist film.

Directed by Zack Snyder from a screenplay he co-wrote with Shay Hatten and Joby Harold (based on a story idea by Snyder), Army of the Dead stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Matthias Schweighöfer, Nora Arnezeder, Hiroyuki Sanada, Garret Dillahunt, Tig Notaro, Raúl Castillo, Huma Qureshi, Samantha Win, Richard Cetrone, and Michael Cassidy.

    About the Author - Derek Anderson

    Raised on a steady diet of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books and Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Derek has been fascinated with fear since he first saw ForeverWare being used on an episode of Eerie, Indiana.

    When he’s not writing about horror as the Senior News Reporter for Daily Dead, Derek can be found daydreaming about the Santa Carla Boardwalk from The Lost Boys or reading Stephen King and Brian Keene novels.
