A Netflix recently released the official poster of ‘The Soldier Who Wasn’t There’ (Operation Mincemeat), World War II drama based on true events.

Check it out, along with the trailer and promotional images:
John Maddennominated for an Oscar for ‘Shakespeare in Love’is responsible for the direction, with a script signed by Michelle Ashford (‘Masters of Sex’).
The story, adapted from the homonymous novel by Ben Macintyre, is set in 1943, when the Allies were preparing to reconquer Nazi Europe. The team responsible for the mission, however, faces an obstacle impossible to circumvent: protecting a massive invasion from colliding with Germanic might and avoiding a potential massacre. Two British intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley, therefore, create a disinformation strategy, centered on the corpse of a man.
Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, Johnny Flynn e Jason Isaacs complete the list.
