"As the unknown true story at the heart of Resistance reveals, aspiring actor Marcel (Jesse Eisenberg) initially did not intend to become involved in wartime activities, but when he became aware that thousands of children who had lost their parents desperately needed help to survive, he was spurred into action.
How could the untrained and apparently meek mime artist, who eventually became world-famous as Marcel Marceau, challenge the Nazis and help the hapless children to survive the horrors of the Holocaust? In our exclusive debut of the first Resistance trailer, we get a strong sense of the infuriating futility that drives Marcel forward, even as menacing German forces draw ever closer. "What's the best way to resist? It's not to kill them," he declares. "It's to survive.""
In further roles Clémence Poésy, Edgar Ramirez, Matthias Schweighöfer, Bella Ramsey and Ed Harris.
The dramatic thriller will open in theaters US-wide on March 27, 2020 and on November 12, 2020 in Germany.
