First Trailer: J.J. Abrams-Produced “Overlord”

First Trailer J J Abrams Produced Overlord

Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot have premiered the first trailer for “Overlord,” the upcoming Nazi zombie film that many suspected (and still do) would turn out to be a fourth “Cloverfield” film.

J.J. Abrams produces the project which will be Bad Robot’s first ever R-rated film, and co-hatched the idea with the film’s screenwriter Billy Ray (“Shattered Glass,” “The Hunger Games”). Julius Avery (“Son of a Gun”) helms the film which is set 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 soon begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation.

Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Iain de Caestecker, Jacob Anderson, Dominic Applewhite, Pilou Asbaek, John Magaro, Mathilde Ollivier and Bokeem Woodbine co-star in the film.
