Superstar director Zack Snyder – director of Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, Sucker Punch, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman & Zack Snyder’s Justice League, has announced via retailer Forbidden Planet that he is launching an exclusive Snyder-curated Forbidden Planet edition of The Army of the Dead: The Making of the Film book.
Speaking exclusively to Forbidden Planet TV, Snyder said: “Titan Books and Forbidden Planet have done amazing work with this curated exclusive edition. It’s been a real pleasure for me to have this exclusive partnership with you guys, we’ve produced “making of” books that span my filmography and they’ve all been amazing. For me as a filmmaker, just to have this record of the work that was done to create these films – all the hard work that the artists have done – these books are a service that really allow fans to connect with how these movies are made. The Army of the Dead book is really fun, it captures a lot of the spirit of the movie and the joy we had making it. Creating this special edition was a real pleasure and I’m excited for the fans to check it out.”
From the director of Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen, and Man of Steel, comes Army of the Dead, Zack Snyder’s eagerly awaited return to the zombie scene, staring Dave Bautista. Following a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, a group of mercenaries take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted. Army of the Dead: The Making of the Film takes readers behind the scenes of this much-anticipated film and reveals the locations, characters, and zombies. The book is full to the brim with exclusive on-set photography, costume designs, storyboards by Zack Snyder, and more, and accompanied by cast and crew interviews. Forbidden Planet’s beautiful worldwide exclusive edition, limited to 500 numbered copies, is signed by Zack, featuring a beautiful gold-foil hardcover and a unique signature sheet showcasing exclusive artwork created for this edition.
