    The YouTube video is age-restricted, so you need to sign-in to a
    YouTube account to watch it it (rather pointless since that doesn't
    really prove you're "old enough" anyway, but is just YouTube / movie
    makers legally covering their own backsides).

    First 15 Minutes of Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead Revealed!
    Ahead of its theatrical release tomorrow, Netflix has released
    the first 15 minutes of Zack Snyder's newest zombie
    action-thriller Army of the Dead, providing viewers a better
    idea of the film's premise. The video also includes a musical
    opening sequence that features an introduction to the main
    characters including Dave Bautista and Omari Hardwick. The
    film is set to arrive in theaters tomorrow on May 14,
    exclusively at 200 Cinemark locations. The wide release will
    then be followed by its global streaming debut on May 21 on

    First 15mins:

    "I did want to sort of shorthand this opening because I really
    wanted to get to [the fact that] these are veterans of a
    zombie war going back," Snyder explained the process behind
    making the opening scene during ComingSoon.net's recent
    interview with the filmmaker. "Not newbies who just learned
    how to navigate it. I knew I needed to do that within the
    confines of this title sequence. That was really my
    philosophical approach. Then in design, it was really just
    creating the vignettes. I just felt like I wanted to just
    show intimate to big and then small to big, you know, it was
    really about the individual things that happened and then
    these like large scale things that happen. I just felt like it
    was super fun, even musically. It was fun to do. You know, how
    I feel about title sequences. Just fun."

    Army of the Dead takes place following a zombie outbreak that
    has left Las Vegas in ruins and walled off from the rest of
    the world. When Scott Ward, a displaced Vegas local, former
    zombie war hero who's now flipping burgers on the outskirts of
    the town he now calls home, is approached by casino boss Bly
    Tanaka, it's with the ultimate proposition: Break into the
    zombie-infested quarantine zone to retrieve $200 million
    sitting in a vault beneath the strip before the city is nuked
    by the government in 32 hours. Driven by the hope that the
    payoff could help pave the way to a reconciliation with his
    estranged daughter Kate, Ward takes on the challenge,
    assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist.

    They include Maria Cruz, an ace mechanic and Ward's old
    friend; Vanderohe, a zombie killing machine; Marianne Peters,
    a cynical helicopter pilot; Mikey Guzman, a go-for-broke
    influencer and Chambers, his ride-or-die; Martin, the
    casino's head of security; a badass warrior known as the
    Coyote who recruits Burt Cummings, a slimy security guard;
    and German safe cracker named Dieter. Scott finds an
    unexpected emotional hurdle when Kate joins the expedition
    to search for Geeta, a mother who's gone missing inside the
    city. With a ticking clock, a notoriously impenetrable vault,
    and a smarter, faster horde of Alpha zombies closing in, only
    one thing's for certain in the greatest heist ever attempted:
    survivors take all.

    The film stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick,
    Tig Notaro, Hiroyuki Sanada, Raul Castillo, Nora Arnezeder,
    Matthias Schweighofer, Ana de la Reguera, Samantha Win, Rich
    Cetrone, Theo Rossi, Huma S. Quresh and Garrett Dillahunt.

    Army of the Dead is written and directed by Zack Snyder,
    based on a story concept from him Shay Hatten (John Wick:
    Chapter 3 - Parabellum) and Joby Harold (Obi-Wan Kenobi).
    Producers are Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder for The Stone
    Quarry with Wesley Collar. Ori Marmu and Andrew Norman are
    overseeing for Netflix.
