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.
1942: The Third Reich is at its peak. The Czech resistance in London decides to plan the most ambitious military operation of WWII: Anthropoid. Two young recruits in their late twenties, Jozef Gabcik and Jan Kubis, are sent to Prague to assassinate the most ruthless Nazi leader – Reich-protector Reinhard Heydrich, Head of the SS, the Gestapo, and the architect of the “Final Solution”.
The Man with the Iron Heart opens in France on June 17 and will be released by The Weinstein Company in the United States.
