hhhh

If it’s one storyline Hollywood consistently loves to tell, it’s a World War II one. Continuing that tradition, the first trailer for “HHhH,” Cédric Jimenez‘s take on the true story of a plot to assassinate Head of the SS Reinhard Heydrich, debuted today.

The film, which is based on the novel by Laurent Binet, stars Jason Clarke, Rosamund Pike, Jack O’Connell, Jack Reynor and Mia Wasikowska.

The official synopsis is as follows:

1942: The Third Reich is at its peak. The Czech resistance in London decides to plan the most ambitious military operation of WWII: Anthropoid. Two young recruits in their late twenties, Jozef Gabcik and Jan Kubis, are sent to Prague to assassinate the most ruthless Nazi leader — Reich-protector Reinhard Heydrich, Head of the SS, the Gestapo, and the architect of the “Final Solution”.

Check out the first trailer below. The film is scheduled for an unspecified 2017 release in the U.S.

  • I don’t know if it’ll factor into awards season. Yet I’m kind of hoping it does because it has Jack O’Connell who I’ve been a massive fan of since Starred Up a few years ago and I hope he can get his first Oscar nomination at some point.

    I can’t be the only person fascinated by this- it’s a World War II film with a Nazi as the protagonist. And not just a nameless, fictional, Nazi, but a well-known and historical person who did bad things. It’ll be interesting to see this brought to life.
