Dornan and Murphy to attend Anthropoid screening

Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy will attend a public preview of their new film next month.

The screening is at BFI Southbank on August 30. Tickets go on sale to the public on July 25 – you can find out more at the BFI’s website.

Anthropoid is based on the true story of the World War II operation to assassinate Nazi commanding officer Reinhard Heydrich. Heydrich was the Reich’s third in command after Hitler and Himmler; he was the main architect behind the Final Solution and the leader of Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia.

The film follows two soldiers from the Czech army-in-exile, Josef Gabčík (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan), who are parachuted into their occupied homeland in December 1941.

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.

Dornan and Murphy will be joined at the event by director Sean Ellis.

Anthropoid is released in UK cinemas on September 9.
