The film is one of 70 movies pledged to be released by the streaming service this year and in a tweet on Sunday (February 21), the official Netflix Film Twitter account confirmed it will drop on May 21.
The tweet came alongside a poster teasing the film’s tagline as “survivors take all” and confirming the release date.
“Snyder + Vegas Heist + Zombies,” its caption read. “Army of the Dead. May 21.”
Army of the Dead follows a group of mercenaries who rob a Las Vegas casino located inside a quarantine zone amidst a zombie outbreak.
Directed by Zack Snyder, who also directed the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake, the movie co-stars Ella Purnell and Fear the Walking Dead actor Garret Dillahunt.
Speaking previously about the film, Snyder told Entertainment Weekly: “It is a full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie, so it’s genre-on-genre in a great way.
“So you expect pure zombie mayhem, and you get that, 100 per cent. But also you get these really amazing characters on a fantastic journey.
“It’s going to surprise people that there’s a lot of warmth and real emotion with these great characters.”
Bautista also recently revealed how he pitched “for years” to be on The Walking Dead.
Army of the Dead will premiere on May 21 on Netflix.
