Cillian Murphy Stars in WWII Assassination Film 'Anthropoid' Trailer
"Take a look around… This is not some game… You get noticed, and that gets us noticed, and being noticed gets us all shot." Bleecker Street has released a trailer for the film titled Anthropoid, which is actually a reference to Operation Anthropoid, the code-name for the assassination mission in Czechoslovakia to take out The Reich's third in command after Hitler and Himmler, SS General Reinhard Heydrich. Actor Cillian Murphy stars as one of the Allied soldiers helping carry out the top-secret mission. He's joined by a cast including Jamie Dornan, Harry Lloyd, Charlotte Le Bon, Toby Jones and Bill Milner. This looks like a very intricate and tense thriller. I'm very impressed by this trailer, really want to see this. Take a look.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Sean Ellis' Anthropoid, found on YouTube:
Based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, the WWII mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the main architect behind the Final Solution and the Reich's third in command after Hitler and Himmler.
