Don’t be disappointed, Cloverfield fans.
In the Paramount Pictures’ presentation at CinemaCon 2018, many thought Overlord is going to be the next installment to the Cloverfield series or at least in the same universe.
J.J. Abrams dispelled the rumors by directly saying that Overlord is not a Cloverfield movie. He has announced there will be another Cloverfield movie for the theaters.
Well, the footage is pretty close to be as frightful as another Cloverfield movie.
Sitting in the audience, Overlord is about a small group of American soldiers behind enemy lines on D-Day. And after watching the sizzle reel, it reveals itself to be more–well, think Call of Duty: WWII in zombie mode.
The sizzle reel starts off with a bunch of American paratroopers flying about France. They must evacuate their plane after being blown out of the sky. The few survivors end up in an unknown location where they discover a military installation. It’s at the military installation that these fighters will encounter strange monsters and zombie-like soldiers.
Overlord is directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) and written by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) and Mark L. Smith (Vacancy).
The cast includes Wyatt Russell (Everybody Wants Some!!), Bokeem Woodbine (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Iain De Caestecker (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Pilou Asbaek (Ghost In the Shell) and Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones).
Without giving any more spoilerish specific scenes, I can say that this R-rated movie is definitely trippy and frightful. As a video gamer myself, I noticed it does have scenic pieces of Call of Duty: WWII zombie mode blending in with the concepts of Resident Evil.
This is definitely one to put on the watch list for horror fans.
