You’re not alone if it takes you a minute to figure out that’s Charlize Theron and not ex-Fox news anchor Megyn Kelly in the first official teaser trailer for Bombshell. With barely a word uttered, the short trailer effectively sets up the story and introduces the three key players in the Fox News scandal that ultimately took down Roger Ailes.
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.”
