Famed director Zack Snyder brings his latest movie to Netflix and its all about zombies invading the Casinos of Las Vegas.
The legion of Snyder fans are pleased to see the director moving away from the DC Universe for his latest movie, and judging by the trailers this is a good old zombie romp in the vein of George A. Romero's classic Dead series.
The movie stars among other Garret Dillahunt, Tig Notaro and Samantha Win.
After a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, a group of mercenaries takes the ultimate gamble by venturing into the quarantine zone for the greatest heist ever.

Who doesn't like a good zombie movie? If thats you then Netflix today presents the first trailer for director Zack Snyder's new movie Army Of The Dead.
This is the first new movie from the director since the controversy and personal tragedy surrounding his time with the original theatrical version of Justice League.
It good to see Snyder move away from the DC Universe for a new movie and this looks fantastic, the movie is set in Las Vegas and is a heist movie mixed in with the zombie mayhem, all in the tradition of George A. Romero's Day Of The Dead.
The movie was shot entirely on digital and there is a real feeling of a video game look and feel in many parts of the trailer which is maybe intentional, but I can see myself reaching for the Playstation controller occasionally!
It also cant be ignored the parallels between the story of a disease dominating a large city and the current global pandemic, but maybe I'm reading more into it than necessary?
The movie hits Netflix on May 21st and wont be hitting cinemas, and on a side note we are also getting Zack Snyder's 4 hours cut of Justice League on HBO Max in the US and other streaming services worldwide on March 18th.

Last weekend saw The Secret Garden climb to the top of the UK box office, but in England cinemas are still closed so again the box office is looking at the few cinemas open in Wales and Scotland.

Check back on Monday to see what new movies made it onto the Weekend Box Office Chart.
27th October 2020
There were a number of new releases at UK cinemas last weekend and this is very nicely reflected on this weeks box office with 6 new movies entering the top 10.
The list is headed up by the animated sequel Two By Two: Overboard! which makes its debut at the top, and in doing so brings to an ends the 8 week run of Tenet.
This weeks top 5 alone has 4 movies making their debut, then further down the box office is All My Life which makes its debut at number 9 and Max Winslow And The House Of Secrets which enters at number 10.
Also worthy of note, this weeks top 15 did far bette than last week with the combined gross nearly £1.5 Million.
Here is the top 15 box office Quickview.
Here is a breakdown of the UK box office top 5 23rd - 25th October 2020.
Makings its debut at the top of the box office is the animated sequel to Two By Two from 2015 which took £566,871 on its debut.
The follow up takes £329.265 on its debut weekend, which in the current COVID-19 climate of actually a good debut, the half term holiday will have helped.
Liam Neeson brings his latest revenge thriller to the big screen and makes a debut at number 2 with £254,267.
It is worth noting that although Two By Two: Overboard! is the top film this is with previews and over the 3 day weekend this would have been the top movie.
Given the half term week I would have thought this new adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel would have done better but a debut at 3 with £154,087 is still good.
The original adaptation of the novel was in 1994 and starred Maggie Smith and was directed by Agnieszka Holland, it took over £3 Million at the box office.
Despite the fact that Warner Bros. has not been pleased with the performance of this movie it spent 8 weeks at the top and only on its 9th weekend of release falls to number 4 with £134,968, 28% down from last weekend.
The movie is the 5th hight grossing movie of 2020 with £17.7 Million so far.
This British heist movie directed by Barnaby Thompson lands on the chart at number 5 this week with £116,517.
It has had good reviews from critics so the future could be good for the movie and a long chart run possible.
