Army of the Dead releases in limited theaters on May 12 and expands on Netflix on May 21, but if you can't get to a theater and are eager to check out the movie, we have another option for you. 

This Thursday, May 13, Netflix will host a global livestream event only on their YouTube channel.

Zombie lovers and Snyder fans will get to unlock the first 15 minutes of Army of the Dead, plus much more. 

There will be special appearances by director Zack Snyder and stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana De La Reguera, Matthias Schweighöfer, Nora Arnezeder, and Tig Notaro. 

There's also a planned event that will feature fans "(literally) digging for a sneak peek of Zack Snyder’s zombie heist flick." Before you ask, we have no idea what "literally digging" actually means. 

So maybe bring a shovel? 

As soon as the sneak is available, you only have a 32-hour window to watch the beginning of Army of The Dead on the Netflix YouTube channel. That's the exact amount of time that hero Scott Ward (Dave Bautista) and his crew have to break into zombie-infested Las Vegas to retrieve the $200 million sitting in a vault beneath the city before the whole place is nuked.

Fun interplay. 

So check it out, and let us know what you think of the opening in the comments.
