Movies based on World War II barely make big releases in India. But the upcoming movie by Julius Avery is no ordinary war film. Produced by J. J. Abrams, Overlord is the story of American soldiers behind enemy lines on D-Day. It has elements of drama and horror as it explores the secret experiments conducted by the Nazi Army to conjure supernatural forces in order to secure a victory in the war. The film is scheduled to release in the US on November 09, 2018 by Paramount Pictures, while the release date in India is tentative.
