Is Trumbo going to be in the running for Oscar glory? The launch of Trumbo‘s official trailer proves the dramatic film based on true events has not only the star power to put it on Oscar voters’ radar and the setting to make it get noticed by Hollywood, but also a storyline to grab the attention of audiences. And, the first trailer does a terrific job of showcasing Bryan Cranston’s performance as blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo. Directed by Jay Roach, the cast also includes Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., David James Elliott, Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Diane Lane, Alan Tudyk, Michael Stuhlbarg and Helen Mirren.
Bleecker Street is releasing Trumbo in theaters on November 6, 2015.
The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.
