Army of the Dead release date, cast, synopsis, trailer, and more


Zack Snyder’s heist film Army of the Dead is coming to Netflix in May 2021. Netflix has a bunch of new titles coming during the month, and this one might just be the biggest and most popular of all of them.

Army of the Dead is a long-awaited zombie heist movie from Zack Snyder. Netflix is so excited about this project that they have already given the green light to an anime companion series and prequel feature film.

In essence, Snyder’s Army of the Dead is becoming a franchise universe at Netflix before it has even been finished, and that means that all of the news and developments are worth watching as Snyder’s vision comes to life.

Army of the Dead release date

Netflix just announced the release date for Army of the Dead. You can watch Army of the Dead on Netflix on May 21, 2021.

The streaming network announced the news on Twitter. Netflix also shared the first poster for the new movie on social media.

We don’t know many of the Netflix movies and shows coming this spring, but Army of the Dead is surely going to be one of the biggest new releases, if not the biggest new release at Netflix.

Army of the Dead cast

Army of the Dead has a massive cast that includes Dave Bautista (Scott Ward), Ana de la Reguera (Cruz), Garret Dillahunt (Martin), Ella Purnell (Kate Ward), Omari Hardwick (Vanderohe), Hiroyuki Sanada (Hunter Bly), Theo Rossi (Burt Cummings), Mattias Schweighofer (Ludwig Dieter) and Tig Notaro.

Chris D’Elia, who starred in You season 2, was going to star in Army of the Dead, but after D’Elia was accused of sexual misconduct, Notaro replaced the comedian in the Netflix movie.

Schweighofer will step behind the camera for the prequel film, while the anime spin-off series will follow Bautista’s Scott Ward as Las Vegas fell at the beginning of the apocalypse.
