It’s San Diego Comic Con weekend and that means lots of new details and trailers for upcoming projects. Two trailers released so far this week include those for Overlord and Patient Zero.
Overlord is the latest project from producer J.J. Abrams and tells the story of a group of American soldiers stuck behind enemy lines in Nazi-occupied France. They stumble upon a secret Nazi facility where unspeakable experiments to create a zombie army are being done.
Directed by Julius Avery and written by Billy Ray and Mark L. Smith, the film stars Jovan Adepo, Jacob Anderson, Dominic Applewhite, Pilou Asbæk, Iain De Caestecker, John Magaro, Mathilde Ollivier, Wyatt Russell and Bokeem Woodbine. Overlord is scheduled to be released on Nov. 9.
Patient Zero, formerly called Patient Z, has been awaiting release for more than three years. In fact, the cast appeared at a Comic Con panel back in 2015. Directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky and written by Mike Le, the film is set in a future where a mutant rabies virus has turned some humans into brutal killers.
One man, who was bitten but not turned, has the ability to speak with the infected and is searching for Patient Zero in order to create a cure and save humanity (including his infected wife).
The cast includes Matt Smith, Natalie Dormer, Stanley Tucci, Agyness Deyn and Clive Standen.
The film will finally be released in the U.S. on Sept. 14.
