Fans of the iconic game ‘Wolfenstein’ have been foaming at the mouth to see more of ‘Overlord,’ and now a full synopsis and new images from the film have been revealed! The premise seems to have directly taken ideas from the game that Germany was using a mixture of mad science and magic to create new ways to defeat their enemies and win World War II at any cost. When the movie was first announced, there was wide speculation that it could somehow be tied to the “Cloverfield” universe though the more we learn, the more that idea seems to be shot down.
For those who have been dying to know more of the movie, Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot have revealed a new synopsis about what is planned and have served up a few new stills from the film as well.
The new synopsis for the film describes it as follows:
With only hours until D-Day, a team of American paratroopers drop into Nazi-occupied
France to carry out a mission that’s crucial to the invasion’s success. Tasked with destroying
a radio transmitter atop a fortified church, the desperate soldiers join forces with a young
French villager to penetrate the walls and take down the tower. But, in a mysterious Nazi lab
beneath the church, the outnumbered G.I.s come face-to-face with enemies unlike any the
world has ever seen. From producer J.J. Abrams, Overlord is a thrilling, pulse-pounding action
adventure with a twist.
