New photo stills for Anthropoid starring Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan arrive ahead of release in UK cinemas this Friday.

Icon Film have sent over a new batch of photo stills for World War II thriller Anthropoid ahead of its forthcoming release in UK cinemas on Friday, September 9.

Written and directed by British filmmaker Sean Ellis (Metro Manila, Cashback), the film is based on the extraordinary true story of the World War II operation to assassinate Nazi commanding officer Reinhard Heydrich.

The third in command after Hitler and Himmler, Heydrich was nicknamed “The Butcher of Prague”, and the architect behind the Final Solution and the leader of Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia. His reign of terror prompted Czech authorities in London to hatch a top-secret mission, codenamed “Operation Anthropoid,” which – if successful – would change history forever.

It follows two soldiers from the Czech army-in-exile, Josef Gabcík and Jan Kubiš, who were parachuted into their occupied homeland in December of 1941. Provided with limited intelligence and little equipment in a city locked down under Nazi occupation, they must find a way to assassinate Heydrich, the man many saw as Adolf Hitler’s natural successor.

The film stars an ensemble cast helmed by Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders, 28 Days Later, Inception) and Jamie Dornan (The Fall, 50 Shades Of Grey) alongside Toby Jones, Charlotte LeBon, Harry Lloyd and Bill Milner.

Anthropoid hits cinemas throughout the United Kingdom of Friday, September 9. It will debut in the Czech Republic – the setting for the film – on September 28. Be sure to catch the photos below and let us know if you’ll be heading to see this one in the comments section.
