The ‘Overlord’ trailer is here to melt your eyeballs

Julius Avery, with backing from JJ Abrams, has made a nazi zombie movie. Let’s take a look!

So this looks suitably gnarly. Soldiers trapped behind enemy miles during World War 2 find a secret Nazi lab where they are using freaky occult science to make Nazi zombies? Sign me up. Are they even zombies? I don’t know. Maybe they’re vampire-human hybrids. Maybe they’re vampire-werewolf-human hybrids. Maybe there’s a bunch of types. Your guess is as good as mine, but I’m here for it. The cast is full of reliable fun people, too. Jovan Adepo (_The Leftovers_, _Fences_) is in the lead, and Iain De Caestecker (_Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D._) is there, so is Wyatt Russell (_Everybody Wants Some!_), and Pilou Asbæk (_Game of Thrones_).

This one has long been rumoured to be another Cloverfield movie, rumours JJ Abrams has denied, but it’s JJ Abrams so the actual answer is we’ll find out on release day, November 9th. Who knows, maybe it’s actually a stealth Hellboy prequel.
