Countless films have been made about the Nazis over the decades. The latest called Anthropoid sees some serious star power with Cillian Murphy of Inception fame and Jamie Dornan of 50 Shades of Gray teaming up to play a pair of Czech soldiers tasked with the assassination of high-ranking Nazi, Reinhard Heydrich.
Set in 1942 during a period where their home country of Czechoslovakia was under the armed control of Nazis, Josef Gabčík and Jan Kubiš must parachute into their homeland with little intelligence or resources to get the deadly mission completed.
What makes the film even more intriguing is the fact that Heydrich’s death in the real world formed a pivotal point in history. He was the third in command to Hitler and also the architect behind the mass extermination of Jews known as the Final Solution.
Check out the trailer featuring espionage, suspense and graphic violence above.
