Read on for article

In 1972, the Summer Olympics in Munich, which had been dubbed “The Olympics of Peace and Joy”, were off to a rousing start.

Suddenly, without warning, an extremist Palestinian group known as Black September invaded the Olympic Village, massacring the Israeli Olympic team. While the Munich terror was seen and felt around the world, the intensely secret aftermath of the event has remained largely unknown.

Now, from director Steven Spielberg comes this gripping thriller based on the events of Munich 1972 and the highly charged mission of retribution that followed, by the covert hit squad who carried out one of the boldest and most aggressive assassination plots in modern history.

In taut, vivid and human detail, the film takes audiences into a hidden moment in history that resonates with many of the same emotions in our lives today.
