Held for Questioning (Der Aufenthalt)

Sylvester Groth shines in this East German movie about a luckless private in a Polish prison, thrown in with a group of defeated Nazi war criminals. For a country that usually paints the ideological divide in black and white red, Frank Beyer’s film of Hermann Kant’s semi-autobiographical story is surprisingly even-handed. An excellent addition to films from behind the old Iron Curtain.

First Trailer for WWII Thriller ‘The Man with the Iron Heart’ With Jason Clarke, Rosamund Pike & More

After his Jean Dujardin-led crime thriller The Connection served as a break-out, director Cédric Jimenez is back with a higher-profile follow-up with quite the ensemble. Led by Jason Clarke, Rosamund Pike, Jack O’Connell, Jack Reynor, and Mia Wasikowska, The Man with the Iron Heart is a World War II thriller and the first trailer has arrived.

Hailing from France, where it’s using the unfortunate original title of HHhH when it arrives this summer, the first trailer shows the story already captured in last year’s Anthropoid, following two young recruits who set out to kill a top Nazi leader. While it doesn’t look to reinvent the genre, the preview sells an intense-looking thriller with a strong cast.

Also starring Stephen Graham and Céline Sallette, check out the trailer below.

Jamie Dornan On Film and TV: A retrospective of the ‘Anthropoid’ actor

Jamie Dornan films: A look back at the Northern Irish actor’s career in the movies and television so far.

Check out the best Jamie Dornan films and TV series below.

Based on an extraordinary true story, Anthropoid follows the daring plot by two Czechoslovakian agents to assassinate SS officer Reinhard Heydrich, the main architect behind the Final Solution and third in command of the Nazi forces behind Hitler and Himmler. One half of the brave duo is portrayed by Jamie Dornan, former male model and international lust object who is somewhat improbably also earning a reputation as one of the most intense leading men around thanks to an acting career rooted in leftfield choices and powerful performances.

Exclusive Interview: Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan for ‘Anthropoid’

Anthropoid review

So far this week we’ve brought you our glowing review of Sean Ellis’ WWII epic Anthropoid, and also an interview with the gifted filmmaker himself. Today we can bring you a new interview with the two stars of the film, Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan.

Anthropoid is based on the extraordinary true story of the World War II operation to assassinate SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich. Heydrich was the Reich’s third in command after Hitler and Himmler, and the main architect behind the Final Solution and the leader of the occupying Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia. Nicknamed “The Butcher of Prague,” his reign of terror and brutal crackdown prompted Allied authorities in London to hatch a top-secret mission, codenamed Operation Anthropoid, which would change history.

The film follows two soldiers from the Czech army-in-exile, Josef Gabcík (Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Dornan), who are parachuted into their occupied homeland in

Exclusive Interview: Cillian Murphy Talks Anthropoid

The names Josef Gabčík and Jan Kubiš may not mean anything to you, but they represent patriotism at its finest for the people of the Czech Republic. And once you see the Sean Ellis-directed Anthropoid, you’ll know exactly why.

Co-written by Anthony Frewin, the WWII thriller tells the true story of the aforementioned Gabčík and Kubiš, played by Irish stars Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan, respectively. The British-trained Czech parachutists were among a group of men sent on a secret mission, titled Operation Anthropoid, to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich.

The Reich’s third in command after Hitler and Himmler, Heydrich brought a reign of terror to the former Czechoslovakia that earned him the title of “The Butcher of Prague.” Gabčík and Kubiš’ heroism may have made them legends, but it is their personal and internal struggles that audiences will be able to connect to: Murphy’s Gabčík

The first and most powerful Holocaust reassessment extends the horror with the assertion that, in 1955, its reality is already fading from the world memory.

Although I review more than my share of grim shows about the Holocaust, I don't think I have an unusually morbid curiosity; subjects like the Shoah and The Bomb are important problems difficult to fully understand.

Anthropoid Trailer Stars Cillian Murphy And Jamie Dornan As World War II Assassins

The first trailer for World War II thriller Anthropoid has arrived online, starring Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan as two Czech operatives tasked with the assassination of an SS officer.

With the movie set to arrive later this summer, it’s a wonder why we’ve heard so little about it until now – especially with a trailer that’s this intriguing. Cashback director Sean Ellis sits at the helm of this espionage pic, whose title refers to a specific mission where two operatives set about hunting down one of Hitler’s highest-ranking officials, SS Reinhard Heydrich. While the cinematic canon includes a lot of World War II thrillers, and many that involve espionage, Anthropoid looks like it’s planning to pack quite a punch thanks to the performances of its strong acting line-up.

Speaking of the cast, Murphy and Dornan are joined by a stellar support roster that includes Toby Jones,
