Zack Snyder debuted the official trailer for his next movie, "Army of the Dead," Tuesday during a Netflix event for press and fans - and it looks pretty great.

Snyder's first zombie-genre film in 17 years since "Dawn of the Dead" follows a group of survivors who are trying to pull off a massive heist in Vegas.

Their greatest obstacle will be fighting their way out alive against an army of the dead and one very angry zombie tiger.

The film has a stacked cast, including Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Matthias Schweighöfer, Nora Arnezeder, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tig Notaro, Huma S. Qureshi, and Garret Dillahunt ("Fear the Walking Dead").

During a live Q&A with the director, which Insider attended, Snyder said the film will contain two zombie classifications: Alphas, who are sentient and have a pack mentality, and slower moving shamblers.

Snyder said we won't just see an undead tiger in the film (who goes by the name of Valentine, by the way). According to the director, the only animals that didn't succumb to the zombie virus in his mythology are birds.

"Army of the Dead" will be in select theaters on May 14 before its streaming on Netflix on May 21.
