Trumbo Trailer

"We do what everyone says we can't - we write!" Bleecker Street Films has debuted the first official trailer for Trumbo, directed by Jay Roach, starring Bryan Cranston as screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. We just teased the new poster for this film, which is about Trumbo who was blacklisted and sent to prison during the Red Scare when the House UnAmerican Activities Committee was questioning Hollywood talent about Communist ties. The big cast includes Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., Stephen Root and Michael Stuhlbarg. This looks damn good, it's going to be so much fun to watch I think that's why I'm intrigued. Cranston looks aces.

Here's the first official trailer for Jay Roach's Trumbo, direct from YouTube:

Trumbo Poster

Trumbo is directed by Jay Roach and written by television writer John McNamara. The film tells the story of real-life screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, the scribe of classics like Spartacus and Roman Holiday, who was blacklisted and sent to prison during the Red Scare when the House UnAmerican Activities Committee (HUAC) was questioning Hollywood talents about Communist ties, forcing many to have pseudonyms and struggle to survive in the face of baseless accusations. Actors John Goodman, Helen Mirren, Louis CK, Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg and more star. It will be released sometime in 2015 from Bleecker Street Films. Trumbo will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this September before opening in theaters in November.

C.K. is talking just like his character on LOUIE. LOL. This looks great. Cranston can't fail.

I don't think Louie knows how to act. He's just Louie......all the time.

Yep. Nothing much has changed either, I read some comments on FB tonight that could have been lifted straight out of that trailer. Looks good, the cast is pretty giant.

"It will be released sometime in 2015...before opening in theaters in November." That doesn't sound very coherent.

Technically it's true....

Jesus, how good is Cranston? Looks great in this.

I personally don't like Brian Cranston, he irritates me! But I have the idea that people on this site find me annoying to, so who am I to complain! 🙂

I have no idea what the hell that means but U did properly capitalize, so who am I to complain.. <- yeah, that makes no sense either

I wasn't going to say anything as Cranston is so popular and I don't want to hurt the sensitive feelings of so many on this site, but I agree with you. I don't like him either and he also irritates me...and I don't know why!! lol...

Cool. Good to have a chuckle about these things, eh? I found Breaking Bad so bad as to be unwatchable, and to prevent myself from throwing my television across the room I stopped tuning in to it! lol big time!!!

Bo on Aug 14, 2015


I did see 3 episodes of breaking bad, but he did act so unnatural that stopped watching! And everybody found it great to watch,so now i am the outcast of my family 🙂 And than came Godzilla! hahaha! Man it was so bad!

Well, this could be worth a visit as it pays attention to a very dark, very ugly time in the history of this 'free' country we live in. Ugly, ugly stuff and America, collectively, should hang its head in shame over this debacle.

Bo on Aug 13, 2015


Well, it's a good twist. American movie about the guy accused of communist conspiracy in US is a hero of the story. What's not to like?
