Netflix doesn’t report on box office numbers for its films, Deadline reports that industry estimates put it above $800,000.
It’s good news for the folks behind the Army of the Dead franchise. Netflix has already greenlit a prequel movie starring Matthias Schweighöfer (the safe-cracking Dieter) and an anime series called Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, which follows Dave Bautista’s character throughout the initial fall of Las Vegas.
