Netflix has released an official trailer for the upcoming World War II thriller, Munich – The Edge Of War starring George MacKay and Jeremy Irons.

Munich – The Edge Of War

Munich – The Edge Of War recounts the events leading to the Munich Agreement as well as a secret mission carried out by two diplomats to reveal Hitler’s true intentions to the world.

MacKay (1917, Wolf) stars as a British civil servant Hugh Legat, Jannis Niewöhner (Mute) plays German diplomat Paul von Hartmann, and Jeremy Irons (Dead Ringers, The Lion King) will play British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.

In the film, Legat is assigned the task of retrieving a sensitive document from his friend, von Hartmann. The document is proof that Hitler doesn’t plan to honor the Munich Agreement and intends to wage war on Europe.

While the Prime Minister prepares to fly to Munich to negotiate peace, Legat comes to terms with his high-stakes mission. Hartmann, on the other hand, lays his life on the line to get those documents, even risking a confrontation with the Führer.

Here’s the trailer:

The official Netflix blurb reads:

“Based on the international bestseller by Robert Harris. It is Autumn 1938 and Europe stands on the brink of war. Adolf Hitler is preparing to invade Czechoslovakia and Neville Chamberlain’s government desperately seeks a peaceful solution. With the pressure building, Hugh Legat, British civil servant, and Paul von Hartmann, German diplomat, travel to Munich for the emergency Conference. As negotiations begin, the two old friends find themselves at the centre of a web of political subterfuge and very real danger. With the whole world watching, can war be averted and, if so, at what cost”

The film has a lineup of young and veteran actors leading the cast, which includes Jessica Brown Findlay, Robert Bathurst, August Diehl, Alex Jennings, Anjli Mohindra, Sandra Hüller, Mark Lewis Jones, and Ulrich Matthes as Adolf Hitler.

Munich – The Edge Of War is directed by Christian Schwochow (The Crown) from a screenplay by British playwright Ben Power.
