Overlord Movie Trailer
« on: July 22, 2018, 02:34:14 AM »
Saw this trailer today.
American paratroopers land in France and discover some Nazi project with genetic modifications/zombies or whatever. Thought this might be of interest to some.

At last a reason to use Zombies, well yet another reason...to use Zombies.

Not sure how they will explain a black soldier serving along white soldiers in a very segregated war.
But, it is just a fantasy story so whatever.

I agree that a black trooper in the 101st in WW2 would not have happened. There was however a black paratroop regiment, the 555th or Triple Nickle. They mostly did smoke jumps fighting forest fires here in the States. Funny how times change and by Vietnam the 101st as well as other Divisions had troopers from all walks of life.

But as said, this is a fantasy movie and I am looking forward to it, and am also going to leave my historical brain at the door and just enjoy the movie.

The 82nd had troopers (I think) from the 555th within a few years of the war ending. I'm sure I've seen that they fought in Korea.

I'd assumed this was a low budget cheesy horror / video game style film and then saw JJ Abrams name on it, which usually attracts a much bigger budget.

 Quite looking forward to this, certainly interested to see where they go with it.

In the trailers I have seen it does not show many US soldiers.
Mainly civilians fighting the monsters.

I've stopped paying attention to critics a long time ago, and have resorted to doing it the old fashioned way; go see it and judge for myself.

Too many films that I really liked were completely destroyed by the critics, and vice versa I've seen films that were praised to high heaven and really didn't do it for me. Personal taste, etc.

And from what I've seen of the trailer, this will sit very well with both myself and my friends, no matter if it's well done or not. But hey; high budget nazi zombies! :D

And even if it sucks; bad movies are a flavour all of their own... ;)
