The first Army of Thieves trailer has arrived online, and it looks like the movie will be more closely tied to Army of the Dead than we initially thought.
Unveiled during Tudum, the world’s premier Netflix fan event, on September 25, the first trailer for Army of Thieves offered a tantalizing glimpse into the events of the film.
Set six years before Army of the Dead, Army of Thieves sees Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighfer) recruited by a mysterious woman named Gwendoline (Nathalie Emmanuel) to perform a series of heists in the world’s largest bank vaults.
Take a look at the official trailer for the film below:

We already knew that Army of Thieves would serve as an origin story for Ludwig Dieter, in addition to taking place long before the events that unfolded in Army of the Dead. But it didn’t seem like the heist story movie would tie in so much with the Army of the Dead plot.
Judging from the trailer above, it will be: We see Dieter watching the zombie outbreak unfold (in Las Vegas) on his TV at one point, for example. Meanwhile, Gwendoline mentions that now is the perfect time to perform their many heists while the world is distracted by the unfolding events in the United States.
However, the biggest surprise came in minute 30 of the trailer. The safes that Gwendoline’s team want to touch all belong to none other than Bly Tanaka, the casino owner who enlists Dave Bautista’s Scott Ward (and his team) to collect $ 200 million from his based gambling den. in Las Vegas. So it looks like Army of Thieves will tie into Army of the Dead in more ways than we thought.
Also starring Guz Khan, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, Jonathan Cohen and Noemie Nakai, Army of Thieves arrives on Netflix on October 29.
