Overlord (2018)- Final Trailer - Paramount Pictures.
On the eve of D-Day in an alternate 1940s World War II where President Roosevelt died in 1944 and Truman is president, the US military is desegregated in the middle of the war. A paratrooper squad, most of them in a integrated unit, is sent to destroy a German radio tower in an old church. Their plane is shot down and crashes, and most of the squad, including squad leader Sgt. Rensin, are killed either in the crash or by Nazi soldiers and landmines. Four survivors remain: second in command Corporal (Wyatt Russell) Ford, Pfc. Boyce, Pfc.Tibbet and Pvt.Chase.
The team continues onward and meet Chloe (Mathilde Ollivier), a young woman from the village where the church is located. She lets them take refuge in her house. Chloe lives with her 8-year-old brother Paul and her aunt, who has been disfigured by Nazi experiments taking place in the church. After Tibbet and Chase depart to check the scheduled rendezvous site, a Nazi patrol led by SS Hauptsturmführer Wafner visits Chloe. Wafner sends his men away and proceeds to coerce Chloe for sex, threatening to send her brother to the church to be "fixed". Boyce, being an idealistic soldier and former paratrooper to 555th paratrooper unit "The Triple Nickels" cannot ignore this and interrupts the Nazi officer. Ford is forced to follow suit and restrain Wafner.
Attempting to reach the rendezvous point to look for Tibbet and Chase, Boyce witnesses the Nazis burning disfigured village residents. He is chased by a dog and is forced to hide in a truck carrying dead bodies inside the church. Sneaking out of the truck, Boyce discovers an underground base which houses not only a radio operating room, but also a laboratory where the Germans perform various experiments on the villagers involving a mysterious serum and a large pit filled with black tar. Boyce takes a syringe containing the serum and rescues Rosenfeld, another member of the paratrooper squad who was captured alive. They escape through the base's sewers.
