Paramount Pictures has come up with a pretty creative poster concept for its WWII fright feature OVERLORD. See it after the jump, along with the trailer.

Dropping into theaters including IMAX November 9, OVERLORD was directed by Julius Avery from a script by Billy Ray and Mark L. Smith, and stars Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Pilou Asbaek, Mathilde Ollivier, John Magaro and Iain de Caestecker. The synopsis: “A group of American paratroopers drop into Nazi-occupied France on the eve of D-Day. As they struggle to carry out their seemingly impossible mission, they discover a secret Nazi lab carrying out terrifying and bizarre supernatural experiments.”
