Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie Go to War with Fox News in this trailer for Bombshell

2 min read

Let’s face it, men can be real pigs at times. As much as I am one and am fully aware that most men are probably okay, respectful people, the behaviour of some definitely makes me ashamed at times of being a male. And its industries like Entertainment which in the wake of the big #MeToo movement, have often seen the worst behaviour as men with ego trips have decided to use their positions of power to mistreat women.

And Lionsgate is about to unleash one big example of this with the movie Bombshell which is based on the true story of the sexual harassment allegations made against former Fox News head Roger Ailes. The film follows the stores if three women, played by Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie who all find themselves on the wrong end of a misogynistic environment and decide to fight one of the biggest news establishments in the world over its treatment of women. It’s a film that has been receiving a lot of hype around its all-star cast, but that we’ve seen little about until now that is with the release of the first full trailer for the film:

It’s easy to see why this movie has been seen as a possible awards contender as the performances look exceptional. A lot of hype has been made about Theron’s transformation into Megyn Kelly, but I would argue that the real star performer in this trailer is John Lithgow’s Ailes. Thanks to a fat suit, stellar make-up and his great acting talent he looks almost unrecognisable here and this move should ae a delight to watch for the acting alone.

Bombshell is written by Charles Randolph who seems to have brought a lot of the same energy and thought provocation from The Big Short into this movie as well. The movie is directed by Jay Roach who, along with the cast, could also find himself up for awards contention if this trailer is anything to go by.

Bombshell is scheduled for release in South Africa on January 24th, 2020. A full month after its US release, but one which may give it more attention in the country as it builds up its potential awards hype and stays clear of the other big holiday blockbusters.

    Sorry if your ashamed for the acts of somebody else that you have no contact or understanding with how can you be ashamed by what they do? You make it out like women do not abuse power positions, but you wont see me trying to blame all women due to their actions, your just virtue signalling

      Yeah bud, I think you need a Valium, a dictionary and a refresher course on grammar. When you’re done with that there are some great programs for misogynist’s which you could benefit from before you embark on the rest this journey called “Life Without Hate.”

        What are you on about? where did i hate on anybody? you just tried straw-manning me, tried putting words in my mouth and clearly didnt get what i had said. perhaps why you can go ahead and explain where i need a dictionary as well, maybe its an american dictionary that your talking about. Either your a idiot and you cant even engage in debate , so do one.
