In the new trailer for Bombshell, Kate McKinnon’s character offers advice about how to determine what’s considered newsworthy on Fox. “You have to adopt the mentality of an Irish street cop. The world is a bad place. People are lazy morons. Minorities are criminals. Sex is sick but interesting. Ask yourself what would scare my grandmother or piss off my grandfather – and that’s a Fox story.”
Oscar winner Charlize Theron (Monster), Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours), Oscar nominee Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), and Oscar nominee John Lithgow (Terms of Endearment, The World According to Garp) lead the cast of the Lionsgate drama based on true events. Kate McKinnon, Connie Britton, Mark Duplass, Rob Delaney, Malcolm McDowell, and Allison Janney also star in Bombshell.
Bombshell was directed by four-time Emmy Award winner Jay Roach (Game Change, Recount) and written by Academy Award winner Charles Randolph (The Big Short). Lionsgate is targeting a December 2019 theatrical release.
“Bombshell is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time; Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it.”
