Two soldiers (played by Dornan and Murphy) from the Czech Army in exile were trained by the British and parachuted into their homeland on a mission - codenamed Anthropoid - to assassinate Heydrich.

Jamie's character Jan Kubis is one of the two assassins who fatally wounded Heydrich in 1942. They took their own lives later after being cornered and besieged in a church.

The Nazis took revenge and slaughtered 5,000 people from two villages in the aftermath.

In this clip Murphy and Dornan are met with skepticism as they lay out the challenge ahead of them.

The film had its world premiere at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival earlier this month.
