WATCH: Trailer comes in for Army of the Dead prequel, Army of Thieves

July 25th, 2021 by Marc Comments

We have the trailer for the highly anticipated Army of the Dead prequel, Army of Thieves from SDCC@Home.

The movie stars Matthias Schweighöfer who is returning from Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead as German safecracker Ludwig Dieter along with new additions to the series including Game of Thrones’ Nathalie Emmanue along with Ruby O Fee, Guz Khan and Jonathan Cohen.

The movie will also be directed by Schweighöfer while Zack and Deborah Snyder will be producing.

The movie, set prior to the events of “Army of the Dead,” takes place during the early stages of a zombie outbreak and centers on Dieter, in his early days of safecracking, as he is hired by a mysterious woman to pull off a heist with the help of a misfit crew of aspiring thieves.

There’s no release date yet, but I’d imagine we’ll see this in 2021.

What say you all? Do you think it looks good? Let me know your thoughts…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
