Once on the site, the message reads "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. You cracked the code. RSVP below to confirm your spot for an exclusive trailer premiere event and live @&A with Zack Snyder on Tuesday, April 13 at 7:30 a.m. PT/10:30 a.m. ET."
On Friday, Snyder shared the Netflix poster for the film and revealed the trailer release date to fans in his own Twitter post promoting the film. Snyder's first post-DC project, the film is about a casino vault heist during a zombie apocalypse and stars Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista as the leader of the group. The film also stars Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, Garret Dillahunt, Raul Castillo, Omari Hardwick, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tig Notaro, and Matthias Schweighofer.
"It is a full-blown, balls-to-the-wall zombie heist movie, so it's genre-on-genre in a great way," Snyder told Entertainment Weekly. "So you expect pure zombie mayhem, and you get that, 100 percent. 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."
"With Dawn [of the Dead], we made a zombie movie but tried to do it all the way with all of those tropes of the genre," the director added. "That was so fun, so I started to think of what were other genres that story didn't have room for. It's this tone where you have fun with the genre but you don't make fun of the genre — it's a fine line."1comments
