If you’ve watched Army of the Dead, directed by Zack Snyder, and loved it, then you should consider checking out the fantastic new companion book from Titans Book. The 192-page Army of the Dead: The Making of the Film just released on June 1 and it’s a beautiful compendium stuffed with everything you could want from a “making of” book.
Fair warning though, don’t read it if you haven’t watched the film yet as it does contain spoilers, but I assume if you’re interested in getting it you’re a fan of the film! The book truly is an ode to fans and to Snyder’s talents as a filmmaker.
You can purchase your copy of the book right now on Amazon.
Army of the Dead: The Making of the Film takes readers behind the scenes, and each page is full of colorful, aesthetically pleasing layouts, cast & crew interviews, storyboards and on-set photography.
I don’t know about you, but if I’m buying a book like this, I want it to look good as well as contain interesting details and Titans Books has done a fantastic job of ensuring that is the case here.
What can you find inside Army of the Dead: The Making of the Film?
Each section of the book is something different with full breakdowns of each main character in the novel, the creation of the zombies (including the zombie animals!), the biggest sets, production design, and more. If you want to know more about the zombie alphas or even the zombie queen, you’ll find that and more within these pages.
The book opens with a foreword from screenwriter Shay Hatten and then goes into an in-depth introduction on how the film was conceived and ultimately came to be. From there, we dive into the “High Rollers,” the main trio of the film including Scott Ward and his compatriots Cruz and Vanderohe. Anything you wanted to know about these characters is explained in detail here including quotes from Dave Bautista, Ana de la Reguera and Omari Hardwick.
Later in the book, you get to learn more about “The Bankroll,” including Bly Tanaka and his henchman Martin.
There are also full-color pages devoted to the other “Wild Card” characters like Guzman, Lily, Chambers, Kate, and Dieter. Beyond that, you can dive deep into the creation of the shamblers and the alphas. If you’re curious exactly how they crafted the prosthetics, wounds and decomposition, then this the book you’ll need. It makes for the perfect coffee book table!
