Someone has to speak up in Jay Roach’s Bombshell Trailer

Lionsgate has released the official trailer for director Jay Roach’s Fox News scandal movie Bombshell, featuring a star-studded ensemble led by Oscar winners Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman along with Oscar nominee Margot Robbie. Also featuring our first look at John Lithgow’s Roger Ailes, you can check out the video below (via Ellentube)!

Bombshell (previously titled Fair and Balanced) is described mostly as an ensemble piece, with the majority of the focus being on former Fox News chief Roger Ailes (John Lithgow, The Crown) and his ultimate downfall that came about after a number of women, including Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) and Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron), sued him for harassment.

Malcolm McDowell (Star Wars: Rebels), Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad), Allison Janney (I, Tonya) and Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters) also star. Robbie will play a fictional Fox News associate producer, while Janney will portray Susan Estrich, Ailes’ attorney.

The cast will also include Alice Eve (Replicas), Alanna Ubach (Coco), Elisabeth Rohm, Spencer Garrett, Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga), Bree Condon and Nazanin Boniadi (Hotel Mumbai) who are all set to portray the roles of Fox News hosts Ainsley Earhardt, Jeanine Pirro, Martha MacCallum, Sean Hannity, Abby Huntsman, Kimberley Guilfoyle and Rudi Bakhtiar, respectively. Emmy award nominated actress Connie Britton has also been cast as Roger Ailes’ wife along with Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2) and Ahna O’Reilly (The Help).

Ailes was fired from Fox News within weeks of Carlson’s suit after several more women came forward with similar allegations of sexual misconduct. Murdoch, who put Ailes in charge of the network in 1996, was one of the news chief’s strongest supporters, though he ultimately made the decision to fire Ailes.

The film will have its theatrical release on December 20.
