The poster for Paramount Pictures’ Overlord features blood drops falling from the sky, mimicking the fall of parachutes from an airplane. The new poster opts to promote the film’s producer, J.J. Abrams, to sell the project rather than list the names of the cast. Director Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) gets a mention as do screenwriters Billy Ray (an Oscar nominee for Captain Phillips) and Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), but the stars are missing from the film’s new poster.
The action horror film’s cast 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).
In addition to J.J. Abrams, Lindsey Weber serves as a producer. Jo Burn, Jon Cohen and Cory Bennett Lewis are involved as executive producers. Overlord‘s behind the scenes team includes cinematographers Laurie Rose and Fabian Wagner, editor Matt Evans, production designer Jon Henson, and costumer designer Anna B. Sheppard, with music by Jed Kurzel.
The film’s been rated R for strong bloody violence, disturbing images, language, and brief sexual content. Paramount Pictures is set to release Overlord in theaters and IMAX on November 9, 2018.
