Paramount’s latest film Overlord produced by J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Fringe) will be released in theaters nationwide this Thursday! We’re excited to bring to you this story about a team of American paratroopers who 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.
The film stars Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Pilou Asbæk, Mathilde Ollivier, John Magaro, and Iain de Caestecker.
