With the movie set to arrive later this summer, it’s a wonder why we’ve heard so little about it until now – especially with a trailer that’s this intriguing. Cashback director Sean Ellis sits at the helm of this espionage pic, whose title refers to a specific mission where two operatives set about hunting down one of Hitler’s highest-ranking officials, SS Reinhard Heydrich. While the cinematic canon includes a lot of World War II thrillers, and many that involve espionage, Anthropoid looks like it’s planning to pack quite a punch thanks to the performances of its strong acting line-up.
Speaking of the cast, Murphy and Dornan are joined by a stellar support roster that includes Toby Jones, »

"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 »

It was just this week with the arrival of the Denial trailer that we commented it wouldn’t be awards season without a Holocaust drama. While Anthropoid is centered moreso around taking down Nazis and it arrives just before the standard award season, we’ll count it. Coming from director Sean Ellis (Metro Manila, Cashback), the first trailer has now arrived.
Led by Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan, they star as a pair of Allied soldiers who attempt to take down an SS General. Also starring Charlotte Le Bon, Anna Geislerová, Harry Lloyd, Alena Mihulová, Marcin Dorociński, Bill Milner, Sam Keeley, Jiří Simek, Mish Boyko, Václav Neuzil, Andrej Polák and Toby Jones, check out the trailer, photos, and poster below.
Anthropoid is based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, the World War II mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich. The Reich’s third in command after Hitler and Himmler, Heydrich was the main architect behind the Final Solution and the leader of occupying Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia whose reign of terror prompted Allied soldiers (Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan) to hatch a top-secret mission that would change the face of Europe forever.
Anthropoid opens on August 12, 2016.
