Overlord is an American war horror film directed by Julius Avery and written by Billy Ray and Mark L. Smith. The film stars Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Mathilde Ollivier, John Magaro, Gianny Taufer, Pilou Asbæk, and Bokeem Woodbine. The film was produced by J. J. Abrams, through his Bad Robot Productions banner, and Lindsey Weber. The plot follows several American soldiers who are dropped behind enemy lines the day before D-Day and discover secret Nazi experiments.
The film will have rabid Call of Duty video game enthusiasts bring back memories of playing the famous zombie mode in those first shooter games. Despite being a horror film taking place in World War 2, and despite the film being produced by JJ Abrams, the film is NOT apart of the Cloverfield cinematic universe like most people thought when they heard about the film. The film looks to be a fantastic blend of grindhouse horror and World War 2 drama.
