Zack Snyder just released a new Army of the Dead trailer for his Netflix heist movie, and a roaring zombie tiger appears to be the breakout star. With a strong ensemble under the direction of Dave Bautista, there are tons of zombie film fans in the trailer to look forward to. Perhaps the biggest takeaway that most fans are still talking about is the partially decayed Tiger – apparently called Valentine.
“Valentine the Zombie Tiger! I love him,” writes an excited fan.
“If something happens to Valentine, the zombie tiger, we’ll make a riot,” said another tweet.
Another fan tweeted: “If something happens to Valentine the zombie tiger, I’ll make camp on the mentions of Zack Snyder. I’ll be the ‘Charlie Hunnam … will it be the Green Lantern?’ Guy.”
“Smart zombies in Army of the Dead!? A zombie TIGER !? OK. Immediately I am 100% more excited than I already was, “writes someone else.” This one can’t be here soon enough. “
“I’m not a huge zombie movie fan, but damn it, #ArmyOfTheDead looks amazing,” says someone else. “A suspenseful heist film with a multitude of characters, intelligent and fast zombies, a zombie QUEEN … and Valentine the zombie tiger. May 21st can’t get there fast enough.”
Another fan wonders if Valentine’s appearance means something in particular Tiger King Star will also come up with a tweet that reads, “It would be cool if #ArmyOfTheDead featured a Zombie Joe Exotic along with a zombie tiger.”
And while praising Valentine, another fan admitted he was already on board when he saw the King of Rock ‘n Roll. “The star of it is probably the zombie tiger, but personally I got 100% on board when I saw the undead Elvis impersonator,” the fan tweeted.
The introduction of a zombie tiger shows that Snyder is ready to turn his undead into much more dangerous Army of the Dead. Back in Snyder’s first zombie film, 2003 Dawn of the Dead Remake, animals appeared to be immune to the virus. The survivors even took advantage of this by driving a dog safely through hordes of zombies to haul supplies. The good news for these survivors is that undead animals weren’t anything to worry about.
How is it in Army of the DeadOnly birds are immune to the zombie virus. Not only would this have made zoos particularly dangerous, but it also helps make Las Vegas a lot more terrifying with zombified show tigers now on the lookout. As scary as the beast looks, the concept has clearly got moviegoers intrigued too, so it seems like a stroke of genius to change the rules of the virus and bring in a damn zombie tiger Zack Snyder.
Army of the Dead follows a group of mercenaries planning a casino heist in a zombie-filled Las Vegas. The film stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana de la Reguera, Theo Rossi, Tig Notaro, Garret Dillahunt and Hiroyuki Sanada. The film will be released on Netflix on May 21, 2021. The new trailer comes from Zack Snyder on Twitter.
