Operation Finale Trailer

“Operation Finale” Trailer Ramps Up the Intensity

Though many know the basic storylines that comprise the horrors of World War II Germany, over the years many films have broadened our understanding concerning the events that lead to the mass execution of over six million Jews.

Chris Weitz’s Operation Final is one of those films, focusing on the high stakes mission to capture Adolf Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust, to have him stand trial in Israel.

The film’s final trailer, which bears a haunting, eerie tone from start to finish, spends much of its time venturing back and forth between Oscar Isaac’s agent Peter Malkin and Ben Kingsley’s Eichmann.  Focusing on information and dialogue exchanges, we quickly begin to understand the cat-and-mouse style “game” that these two men become entangled within, working against one another to understand each other’s motive, obsession and moral compass.

We’ll get the full story of this highly dangerous abduction attempt when Operation Finale hits theaters on August 29.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
