J.J. Abrams' Overlord Gets a New Release Date

Overlord

The filmmaker addressed speculation in April about a potential connection to Cloverfield, saying this latest project is a "crazy sci-fi action horror film" but it's not part of the established franchise.

Rumoured to be the next Cloverfield film, the trailer is absolutely insane. What we do know is that it's set on the eve of D-Day, and follows USA paratroopers who drop into enemy territory and discover that the Nazis are experimenting with supernatural forces to help them win the war. As they approach their target, they soon begin to realize there's more going on in the Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. How did I not know this about the Agents of SHIELD standout that's been breaking my heart for the last few years?

Arriving Nov. 9 from Paramount Pictures, Overlord stars Jovan Adepo, John Magno, Wyatt Russell, Bokeem Woodbine, Pilou Asbaek, Jacob Anderson and Iain De Caestecker. Much like most of the films being produced by Bad Robot, very little is known about the plot but we're told that it revolves around two American soldiers that stray behind enemy lines on D Day.

Netflix is revamping its TV experience today with a new simpler design

Back at CinemaCon, Abrams emphatically confirmed it was not a Cloverfield film, but rather a standalone feature from Julius Avery (Son of a Gun).

Overlord is now scheduled for release on 9 November.
