Ahead of tonight’s start of San Diego Comic-Con, Paramount has released the red band trailer for the WWII set Overlord.
Kicking off with AC/DC’s “Hell’s Bells, the trailer is filled with blood, gore, and non-stop action. Soldiers seem to be going toe to toe with super soldiers that may or may not be zombies made by a Nazi-created serum. The trailer left us tickled pink and wondering what is behind the mysterious wall at the end of the trailer. This is going to be good.
In Overlord, “On the eve of D-Day, a group of American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success, but as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment.”
As we’ve previously reported, the J. J. Abrams-produced, Bad Robot horror film is not connected in any way to the Cloverfield franchise which was rumored in the beginning.
Directed by Julius Avery, Overlord stars Jovan Adepo and Wyatt Russell of “Black Mirror”, along with Jacob Anderson (“Game of Thrones”), Dominic Applewhite (The King’s Speech), Pilou Asbaek (“Game of Thrones”), Iain de Caestecker (“Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.”), John Magaro (The Big Short), Mathilde Ollivier (The Misfortunes of Francois Jane), and Bokeem Woodbine (“Fargo”).
Paramount will unleash Overlord on November 9, 2018.
