Overlord is hitting theaters next October.

The supernatural WWII thriller from Paramount and Bad Robot will be released wide on Oct. 26, 2018. It will open a week after Sony’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web adaptation and Warner Bros.’ Jungle Book: Origins take, and just ahead of Disney’s live-action Mulan and Fox’s actioner Dark Phoenix.

Wyatt Russell and Jovan Adepo star as American paratroopers dropped into enemy territory. As they approach their target — a Nazi-occupied village with a German radio tower — they realize that they are a part of something bigger than a simple military operation. They then take on supernatural forces as part of a Nazi experiment.

Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) directs from a script by Billy Ray and Mark L. Smith, who are responsible for the Captain Phillips and The Revenant screenplays, respectively. J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber are producing for Bad Robot.
