Another trailer was released at the Netflix special event TUDUM and it is yet another banger. 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. The trailer of the Army Of The Thieves was very fun, action-packed, and was without zombies. So, it will have a similar kind of vibe as Army Of The Dead, but it will be different.
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. You can read the whole list at IMDB.
