The first official trailer invites audiences to experience chaos, fear, insanity, havoc, horror, evil, madness, terror, and the rage of Overlord. The horror film marks the first R-rated project from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot, and the two-minute full trailer does a terrific job of setting up the twisted world of the WWII-set film.
Overlord was directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) from a script by Oscar nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) and Mark L. Smith, based on an original story by Ray. J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber produced, and Jo Burn, Jon Cohen and Cory Bennett Lewis served as executive producers.
The cast of Overlord includes Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell (Lodge 49, Ingrid Goes West), John Magaro (Orange is the New Black), Mathilde Ollivier (The Misfortunes of Francois Jane), Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones), Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo, Underground), Iain De Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones).
Paramount Pictures is set to release Overlord in theaters and IMAX on November 9, 2018.
The Plot: The R-rated horror film is set on the eve of D-Day and follows a group of American paratroopers who take heavy fire as they’re dropped behind enemy lines. Their mission is critical to the invasion’s success. However, as they approach their target, they are shocked to realize there is something incredibly evil going on in the Nazi-occupied village. They soon realize there’s something much more going on than just a simple military operation.
