Basking in the glory of his GOAT hashtag given to him by his fans on Twitter, Justice League director Zack Snyder reached out to his social media following to encourage them to vote for his 2021 film Army of the Dead, to get the “Fan Favorite” Academy Award.
The film, a “spiritual successor” to 2004’s Snyder-directed Dawn of the Dead remake scripted by James Gunn, stars David Bautista as a mercenary hired to break into a casino in zombie-ridden Las Vegas and steal $200 million from its vault. The film received mixed reviews on its release, with a 67% “fresh rating” on critical aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, and a score on Metacritic of 57 out of 100. However, that didn’t stop Netflix from immediately greenlighting an Army of the Dead prequel, Army of Thieves, which also released in 2021.
