Overlord – WWII soldiers battle monsters in the trailer for what could be the next Cloverfield movie


Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) directed the Paramount and Bad Robot’s World War II film Overlord – The story follows two paratroopers who are caught behind enemy lines after their plane crashes on a mission to destroy a German Radio Tower in a small town outside of Normandy during the D-Day invasion. After reaching their target, the two paratroopers come to realize that besides fighting off Nazi soldiers, they also must combat against supernatural forces that are a result of a secret Nazi experiment.

This film stars Wyatt Russell, Jovan Adepo, Jacob Anderson, Dominic Applewhite, Pilou Asbaek, Iain de Caestecker, John Magaro, Mathilde Ollivier, and Bokeem Woodbine.

It was also produced by JJ Abrams.

Overlord was first announced back in February 2017 and then in January 2018 came word that it was going to become part of the Cloverfield series. However, I cannot see any mention of that in the trailer. I would be happy if it was just its own thing.

I always love the idea of soldiers fighting monsters, or in this case super-soldier type creatures. Overall, the trailer works and makes me want to see more, although the CG may be a bit of a letdown.
