In 2016, longtime Fox News chief Roger Ailes resigned over allegations of sexual harassment from multiple women, including network hosts Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly. And since scandals often serve as fodder for movies, it should come as no surprise that we're getting a feature film based on those allegations and what happened behind the scenes at Fox News.
Lionsgate just dropped a new trailer for 'Bombshell,' which opens on December 20, and stars Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly, Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson, and John Lithgow as Roger Ailes. Margot Robbie stars as the fictional character Kayla Pospisil, and the film is directed by Jay Roach. Theron is already getting Oscar buzz (yes, this early), and the December release by Lionsgate is clearly poised to make the movie top of mind during the nomination and voting windows.
