After a long wait, we are finally getting close to the official release of Army of Thieves, and here’s everything you need to know about the movie’s release schedule.
Directed by Matthias Schweighöfer, Army of Thieves is an upcoming heist film. Interestingly, the forthcoming movie serves as a prequel to Zack Synder’s Army of the Dead that came out earlier this year. The movie follows the origin story of Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) and how he found his interest in safecracking.
Besides Ludwig Dieter in the leading role, Army of Thieves will also introduce several new characters in the franchise. And fans who’ve watched Army of the Dead are eagerly waiting to find out what the prequel has to offer.
Notorious safecracker Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) is back in Army of Thieves, a prequel to Zach Snyder’s zombie heist film Army of the Dead released earlier in 2021. Set six years before the action of that movie, Army of Thieves finds safecracker Dieter still working his bank job in the early days of the zombie break out and is recruited for a massive heist across Europe. In addition to reprising his role as Deiter, Schweighöfer also takes on directing this film. Read on to learn how to stream Army of Thieves.
Army of Thieves is scheduled to come out on Friday, October 29th, 2021.
The movie will be available to watch exclusively on Netflix, so it’s best to take a subscription if you don’t have it already.

Similar to the last movie, this 2021 film will be added to Netflix’s library. If you are yet to watch the first movie in the series, you can check it out right here.
However, you cannot stream the movie for free, and there is no free trial available for new users to access Netflix’s phenomenal category for free. Fortunately, for U.S. viewers, T-Mobile is running an offer to get a free Netflix account with one of its plans.
But what if you live in India? Well, in that case, Reliance Jio Postpaid plans users can get a free Netflix subscription too. Just keep in mind both the above-mentioned offers still require you to pay the basic fee of the cellular plans.
