TRAILER: Elser (13 Minutes) – WWII Drama


Downfall (Der Untergang) director Oliver Hirschbiegel is back in the WWII time period with 13 Minutes (Elser: Er hätte die Welt verändert), which has the first trailer online. Based on a true story, the movie revolves around Adolf Hitler, which focuses on a lively carpenter from Germany named Georg Elser and his conspirators’ assassination attempt on the life of the Third Reich’s leader.

The synopsis reads as follows:

From the director of the Academy-Award nominated Downfall – 13 MINUTES tells the incredible true story of the man who nearly changed the world – Georg Elser, a carpenter who attempted to carry out a bomb plot against Hitler at a Nazi convention in Munich 1939. The film follows Georg’s fascinating confession, of not only how a seemingly non-political man came to this point, but also delving into his personal relationships and how they were affected by his beliefs, especially with the love of his life, Elsa.

You can buy 13 Minutes on Amazon (U.K.), as there is no release in the US yet, or view the trailer here first.
