ARMY OF THE DEAD - isao kanemasa - 02-25-2021





Sorry if there's a pre-existing thread but I couldn't find one in the Focused forum.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - MichaelM - 02-25-2021

I'm down for it. I also need to watch Snyder's Dawn of the Dead remake at some point.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - anyawatchin angel - 02-25-2021

One thing that's bugging me. What's the point of stealing money in a zombie apocalypse? It doesn't look like the outbreak started the same day as their heist. Seems the world would be on the barter system. I don't expect much from Snyder but the premise seems weaker than usual.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - MichaelM - 02-25-2021

I had the same question, but apparently Vegas is walled off. The official premise:

"The film takes place after a plague has been released from Nevada’s Area 51 and the U.S. government barely manages to contain by building a wall around Las Vegas, which has become overrun with zombies."

His DoTD remake is REALLY good. I actually enjoy it more than Romero's - though to be fair I find it the weakest of his main trilogy of films.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - atomtastic - 02-25-2021

Escape from Las Vegas!

Hope we see a zombie wandering around with a cigarette holder, Goliath sunglasses and a snazzy red suit.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - anyawatchin angel - 02-25-2021

Must take place post Trump administration then.

At least the problem is addressed even though there would be no way to build a wall like that in time. I love Bautista and if he's great in this I'll watch but this looks dumb.

To be fair, and based on the trailer, I get the feeling that it's not going to take itself that seriously.  Especially compared to Snyder's Dawn of the Dead, this looks more akin to Dead Rising.

If this is Snyder going "fuck it, I just wanna film a bunch of cool shit," I am all for this.

Yeah that's what I'm hoping for. I love the Snyder who just burns money filming the stuff he thinks is cool. Because the stuff he thinks is cool? I think it's cool too!!


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 02-25-2021

So... is that a Zombie Elvis Impersonator... Or, is that The King himself, but now a zombie??


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - Nooj - 02-25-2021

that... is a great question


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - freeman - 02-25-2021

... For ANOTHER TIME!!!


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 02-25-2021

But knowing is...

...half the battle!


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - Nooj - 02-25-2021

the battle has already begun!


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 02-25-2021

Every beginning... has an ending.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - freeman - 02-25-2021

Finish the fight.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - Nooj - 02-25-2021

every ending, has a beginning


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 02-25-2021

Every second act... has a rise in conflict.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - filmnerdjamie - 02-25-2021

Very cool concept. Really want this to be good.

But looking at that trailer, it's clearly full-Snyder, and you don't go full-Snyder.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 02-25-2021

Every fuddy duddy... has a nitpick.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - freeman - 02-25-2021

Every Snyder... has a rotten tomato meter.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 02-25-2021

Every dullard... uses RT to keep score.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - freeman - 02-25-2021

Dropkick... in the junk.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 02-25-2021

What if destiny... was never meant to be??

Well since Elvis faked his death, what do you think??!


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 02-25-2021

I think he should be the antagonist.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - cd underbelly - 02-25-2021

Is the first Snyder movie since Sucker Punch that's not a direct adaptation of something? Or was this already a comic or novel?


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - filmnerdjamie - 02-25-2021

It's an original. Written to be a sequel to his Dawn of the Dead that collected dust at Universal.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - simbob - 02-25-2021

I almost can't believe this doesn't have some horrible looking color palette to it like everything he did after Dawn of the Dead other than that owl cartoon.

Watched the director's cut. It's funnier, has more action, more kills, and more zombie gore.

Oh. That kind of makes me hope there's more than just zombies in this.

Modern horror classic, IMHO.  

I love it.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - Belloq87 - 02-27-2021

This looks like complete nonsense.

But I can't deny that the prospect of a zombie romp in Las Vegas could be fun.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - Chaz Rock City - 02-27-2021

I'm down for seeing Baustia kill zombies.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - ska oreo - 04-13-2021





Ok. I was not expecting this.   But this looks hella fun.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - MichaelM - 04-13-2021

Fuck, that looks like fun.

The zombie tiger was great.


RE: ARMY OF THE DEAD - bradito - 04-13-2021

Looks pretty good!
