13 Minutes U.S. Trailer

Oliver Hirschbiegel‘s 13 Minutes (2015) U.S. movie trailer stars Christian Friedel, Katharina Schüttler, Burghart Klaußner, Johann von Bülow, and David Zimmerschied. 13 Minutes‘ plot synopsis: “During Hitler’s anniversary speech on November 8, 1939, a man is arrested on the Swiss border for possession of suspicious objects. Just minutes later, a bomb explodes in the Munich Bürgerbräukeller, immediately behind the Fuhrer’s lectern, killing eight people. The man is Georg Elser (Christian Friedel), a carpenter from Konigsbronn in the Swabia region.

When a map of the site of the assault and detonators are found on him, he is sent to the head of the Criminal Police in the Reichssicherheitshauptamt, Arthur Nebe (Burghart Klaussner) and the head of the Gestapo, Heinrich Müller (Johann von Bulow) to be questioned. From them, Elser learns that his attempt has failed – that the man he wanted to kill in order to stop the bloodshed of the World War that had just begun, has left the Bürgerbraukeller 13 MINUTES before the explosion.”

This looks good. I have been watching Anthropoid, Fury, and a few other war films recently. The good thing about this recent wave of World War II films is that they illuminate plots against Hitler that the general public is unaware transpired.

Munich Bürgerbräukeller is one of those plots. Georg Elser was a pretty audacious and brave fellow. His weapon and his plan were pretty ingenuous. Its unfortunate that he failed.
