Mister Cartoon & West Coast Customs Made an Epic Zombie Lowrider for Netflix’s Army Of The Dead! – The Hype Magazine


Mister Cartoon and West Coast Customs teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind lowrider inspired by the new Zack Snyder film Army of the Dead – available to watch on Netflix now! 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.

In Army of the Dead, you’ll find lowrider staples featured throughout the film, but they don’t carry quite the grandeur of today’s lowrider culture, given the apocalyptic state of Las Vegas. To elevate this dynamic and shed light on the culture, Netflix partnered with Mister Cartoon and West Coast Customs to create a custom designed 1983 Monte Carlo that was inspired by the film.

In his design, Mister Cartoon leaned into the classic Laugh Now, Cry Later motif by splitting the design into two halves – one for the good times, one for the bad times. It correlates with the film’s high and low dynamic by depicting the dark side in the zombie threats and the bright side in the flashy and hopeful spirits of winning big in Vegas. My favorite aspects of the design are the zombie tiger and ‘Always Bet On Dead’ slogan on the trunk. You can check out photos of the Monte Carlo below!

 

ABOUT ARMY OF THE DEAD

From filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Zack Snyder’s Justice League), ARMY OF THE DEAD takes place following a zombie outbreak that has left Las Vegas in ruins and walled off from the rest of the world. When Scott Ward (Dave Bautista), a displaced Vegas local, former zombie war hero who’s now flipping burgers on the outskirts of the town he now calls home, is approached by casino boss Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada), it’s with the ultimate proposition: Break into the zombie-infested quarantine zone to retrieve $200 million sitting in a vault beneath the strip before the city is nuked by the government in 32 hours. Driven by the hope that the payoff could help pave the way to a reconciliation with his estranged daughter Kate (Ella Purnell), Ward takes on the challenge, assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist. They include Maria Cruz (Ana de la Reguera), an ace mechanic and Ward’s old friend; Vanderohe (Omari Hardwick), a zombie killing machine; Marianne Peters (Tig Notaro), a cynical helicopter pilot; Mikey Guzman (Raúl Castillo), a go-for-broke influencer and Chambers (Samantha Win), his ride-or-die; Martin (Garret Dillahunt), the casino’s head of security; a badass warrior known as the Coyote (Nora Arnezeder) who recruits Burt Cummings (Theo Rossi), a slimy security guard; and a brilliant German safe cracker named Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer). Scott finds an unexpected emotional hurdle when Kate joins the expedition to search for Geeta (Huma S. Qureshi), a mother who’s gone missing inside the city. With a ticking clock, a notoriously impenetrable vault, and a smarter, faster horde of Alpha zombies closing in, only one thing’s for certain in the greatest heist ever attempted: survivors take all.

ARMY OF THE DEAD is directed by Zack Snyder (who also served as director of photography) with a screenplay by Snyder & Shay Hatten and Joby Harold from a story by Snyder. The film is produced by Deborah Snyder, p.g.a.; Wesley Coller, p.g.a.; Zack Snyder, p.g.a. The film also stars Richard Cetrone and Michael Cassidy.
