Director Julius Avery’s latest filmmaking alliance with producer J. J. Abrams on upcoming horror epic, Overlord, has already proven beneficial. You needn’t really look further than the final trailer now running online ahead of its November 9 release from Paramount and if the hype says nothing else, it pretty much tells you to see it in IMAX and bring a friend. Or 10.
With only hours until D-Day, a team of American paratroopers (Jovan Adepo, John Magaro, Wyatt Russell, Iain DeCaestecker) drop into Nazi-occupied France to carry out a mission that’s crucial to the invasion’s success. Tasked with destroying a radio transmitter atop a fortified church, the desperate soldiers join forces with a young French villager to penetrate the walls and take down the tower. But, in a mysterious Nazi lab beneath the church, the outnumbered G.I.s come face-to-face with enemies unlike any the world has ever seen. From producer J.J. Abrams, Overlord is a thrilling, pulse-pounding action adventure with a twist.
