Rebel Moon is a new sci-fi film inspired by Star Wars and Seven Samurai. Snyder serves as director and co-wrote the script with Kurt Johnstad and Shay Hatten.

The poster shows Boutella in costume as her character Kora, a deserter who rallies warriors from across the galaxy to fight against the tyrannical Imperium.

"War comes to every world," Snyder captioned the post.

Djimon Hounsou, Charlie Hunnam, Michiel Huisman, Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, Jena Malone and Ed Skrein also star.

Netflix released a behind-the-scenes video for the film during its Tudum global fan event Saturday.

"This movie for me existed elementally for 20 years," Snyder says in the clip. "It's a story of a few against many, impossible odds, good versus evil. I'm getting the chance to tell the story that I've been thinking about for quite a while."

Snyder shared a photo earlier this month that introduces Skrein as the villain Admiral Atticus Noble.

Rebel Moon premieres Dec. 22 on Netflix.

Snyder is known for directing such films as 300, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
