This Halloween get ready for some Zombies!!
So, finally, the release date of Army Of The Thieves has been announced and it is hard not to be excited. After the success of Army Of The Dead, Netflix and Zack Snyder announced that they will make a whole universe out of it. And they are doing it right now. Zack Snyder himself went on Twitter to announce the release date of Army Of The Thieves. This movie will be a prequel to the Army Of The Dead which was also released earlier this year.
Army Of The Thieves Plot
The official synopsis reads “In this prequel to Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, small-town bank teller Dieter gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol’s most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.”
The movie will actually tell the origin story of Ludwig Dieter just before the zombie outbreak. We know how he died in the original, now we will see how he came into this world of terror.
We might see how the zombie virus spread in the world. I have said time and time again that prequels are always good for world-building. They give more depth to the original movies without changing much. And that is always a good thing. And that is exactly why I am excited about this movie. Zack Snyder knows how to create a world where everything is connected. We have seen him doing that in DCEU and he will do it here too.
Army Of The Thieves Release Date
Zack Snyder himself announced the release date of the movie on Twitter. The movie is all set to release on October 29, 2021. Which is only two months away and fell right on Halloween. It will be a global release and will release exclusively on Netflix.
Matthias Schweighöfer will be the main lead of the movie as Ludwig Dieter alongside Game Of Thrones famed Nathalie Emmanuel. Other cast members of the movie are Ruby O. Fee as Korina, Stuart Martin as Brad Cage, Guz Khan as Rolph. There are other cast members too. You can read the whole list at IMDB.
Army Of The Thieves: What To Expect?
Moreover, If this movie turns out to be anything like the previous one I will love it. It should be fun and should not take itself much seriously. And most importantly, if they can keep the emotional side of the movie intact you are in for a treat.
