‘Army of the Dead’ Prequel ‘Army of Thieves’ Drops Official Key Art

The prequel to director Zack Snyder’s kick-ass zombie heist movie has dropped official art from its teaser and it’s looking like another zombie hit is on the way. Army of Thieves takes place before Army of the Dead and follows the goings-on of small-town bank teller Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) after he gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime. We’re excited to see how well Schweighöfer’s unforgettable performance as Dieter in Snyder’s film sheds light on his character’s past.
