Preview – Overlord


Julius Avery’s adrenaline-fuelled action-thriller hybrid – which crashes onto Sky Store this week – sees a group of daring US paratroopers stumble upon more than they bargained for after landing in a remote French village under Nazi-occupation. As they delve into the dark secrets that the village houses, the soldiers are confronted by a terrifying discovery which threatens to change warfare forever.

Ordered to infiltrate and sabotage German fortifications in a Nazi-occupied village on the eve of the D-Day landings, a squad of American paratroopers are stranded behind enemy lines when their deployment goes awry. Finding allies in the oppressed townspeople, the group discover a far greater Nazi-presence than previously expected, emanating from an underground headquarters which sees prisoners turned in, never to be seen again. With sinister experiments running rife underground and now trapped in with their enemies, the American soldiers are forced to fight against impossible odds for survival. What horrors lurk in the dimly-lit corridors of the bunker?

Wyatt Russell becomes the paratrooper’s leader Corporal Ford and faces off against SS officer Wafner, played by Game of Thrones’ Pilou Asbæk. Jovan Adepo co-stars as Private Edward Boyce while John Magaro, Iain De Caestecker and Dominic Applewhite make up the rest of the surviving paratroopers. Mathilde Ollivier holds a major role as Chloe – a French civilian who aids the trapped soldiers.
