Overlord: New Poster From J.J. Abrams Produced WWII Zombie Film

Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot Productions have released the first poster for the J.J. Abrams-produced World War II zombie horror film titled Overlord. The poster in question shows a bloody gritty design which is completely in line with the chilling and bloody aesthetic of the trailer. It features the nazi zombie, which is the same zombie seen in the trailer, sporting an evil kind of grin against a red background and black spatters.

You can check out the new Overlord poster below.

Talking more about the upcoming horror film, it has already been confirmed that Overlord isn’t connected to the already established Cloverfield franchise.

Set on the eve of D-Day during World War II, the film’s story follows a small group of U.S. paratroopers who are dropped behind enemy lines in France to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success. But as they approach their target, they discover that their mission is much more than a simple military operation as there are a lot of supernatural and sinister Nazi experiments going on in the village.

During an interview with Digital Spy in February this year, J.J. Abrams praised the work done by director Julius Avery on the film. He assured fans that Overlord will turn out to be a complete crazy movie.

Overlord … first of all it’s something that I can’t wait for you to see cause the director, Julius Avery, has done an amazing job on it,” Abrams said. “But the specifics, you know, we should wait and see. But that’s really a crazy movie.”

Directed by Julius Avery from a script by Billy Ray and Mark L. Smith, Overlord stars Jovan Adepo, John Magaro, Wyatt Russell, Dominic Applewhite, Mathilde Ollivier, Bokeem Woodbine, Pilou Asbaek, Jacob Anderson and Iain De Caestecker.

Overlord is set to arrive in theaters on November 9, 2018.
