Earlier this month, Zombie fans finally got to see the much-awaited debut trailer for Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, which features Dave Bautista leading a group of Soldiers turned mercenaries against hordes of zombies. But some of them aren’t the brain-dead human-eating version that we know of.
A new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead dropped yesterday and all eyes were once again on the superpowered zombies (and a zombie Tiger). The first trailer revealed the new iteration of zombies known as Alphas which are self-aware. And it doesn’t help that they are fast and powerful but it looks like that won’t be the only problem that the Soldiers will have to face in their heist mission to steal the big buck from a casino.
Snyder and Bautista recently got to share more new details on the Alpha Zombies, during an interview with Empire where they each gave their perspective on what makes the new iteration different from the zombies in past movies and TV shows. “I want the audience to get a chance at having sympathy,” Snyder said. “Alphas have consciousness and they’re self-aware and they’re not like us. So I wanted to create this moral ambiguity about whether or not humans that we love in the movie crossed a line. Was there a thing that they did to the Alphas, when the Alphas were minding their own business? And therefore, do the Alphas have the the moral high ground? It muddies the water, in a good way.”
Bautista also piled on to share his sheer excitement from seeing the actors that played the self-aware zombies as well as witnessing the new zombie abilities. “They’re f****** zombie superheroes. The Alpha zombies are just complete badasses. The athleticism of some of these people [playing the Alphas], I’ve never had and never will have in my life,” Bautista said.
Army of the Dead will be available to stream on Netflix from May 21st.
