Cillian Murphy, Jamie Dornan go undercover in 'Anthropoid' clip
Back in 1941, two Czechoslovakian soldiers parachuted into their homeland in a covert attempt to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich. Not only did the notorious SS officer lead the occupation of Czechoslovakia and serve as the Nazis’ third-in-command behind Hitler and Himmler, but Heydrich was perhaps most infamous for being the architect of the Final Solution. The two Czech soldiers, Josef Gabčík and Jan Kubiš, risked their lives by going undercover behind enemy lines, and now, Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan are bringing their story to the big screen.
This exclusive clip from the film finds Kubiš (Dornan) and Gabčík (Murphy) hiding in plain sight, recruiting two local women (Charlotte Le Bon and Anna Geislerová) to help them blend in while they wait to carry out their plan. But when the pair show up looking like the most beautiful girls in the entire village, Gabčík worries that they’re attracting too much attention.

“You know, for most girls, a little lipstick is the only way to forget what’s happening here,” one woman tells him. “Even if it’s just for a few hours.”
“Your lipstick gets you noticed, and that gets us noticed, and us being noticed gets us all shot,” Gabčík replies.
Directed by Sean Ellis and also starring Harry Lloyd and Toby Jones, Anthropoid will hit theaters on Aug. 12.
