Zack Snyder's filmography has never been particularly well received by critics, yet few filmmakers in the business have a more enthusiastic and dedicated following. That's certainly going to extend to this year's Rebel Moon, which is almost certain to become one of Netflix's biggest films ever.

After all, Army of the Dead was named all-time Top 10 on the streaming service shortly after its release, and the first chapter in the two-part sci-fi epic inspired by Akira Kurosawa's iconic Seven Samurai has the intrigue that comes from its origins as a Star Wars spinoff, before Lucasfilm quietly vacuums it up.

Snyder has a reputation for being one of the best directors to work with firsthand, and there's a long list of collaborators who have praised him to the max for their time working on one of his projects. Cleopatra Coleman of Rebel Moon has now been added to the list, after she raved about her time on set with Collider.

Rebel Moon will not be released on Netflix until December 22, although the festive period has proved to be a goldmine when it comes to viewership statistics, so there's no reason to expect it to be anything other than a massive success.
