Watch: Jessica Chastain as a Lobbyist in First Trailer for 'Miss Sloane'
"How the hell did she manage that?!" EuropaCorp has unveiled the trailer for the sure-to-be-controversial new drama Miss Sloane, starring Jessica Chastain as an ambitious lobbyist. Chastain plays Elizabeth Sloane, who is brought in to help fight for legislation requiring more stringent background checks for gun ownership. Of course she encounters an absurd amount of stubborn and powerful resistance, and this trailer teases that opposition. Also starring Mark Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alison Pill, Jake Lacy, John Lithgow, Michael Stuhlbarg, Sam Waterston & Dylan Baker. This looks very impressive, and I fully support Chastain's character and all she is fighting for. It also makes me a bit sad, because she is obviously going to be "annihilated". The film is likely going to play both sides equally, but still, we know. Take a look.
Here's the first official trailer (+ two posters) for John Madden's Miss Sloane, originally from EW.com:
A ruthless and highly successful political strategist, Elizabeth Sloane (Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain), exposes the cutthroat world of D.C lobbyists on both sides of the gun control debate. New legislation requiring more stringent background checks for gun ownership is gaining traction in Congress, and Sloane is approached to spearhead the campaign, pitting her against the formidable power of her political opponents. Deploying her notorious skills - and driven by a desire to win at all costs - she jeopardizes those closest to her, and puts her own career at risk. Miss Sloane is directed by Oscar nominated English filmmaker John Madden, of Golden Gate, Ethan Frome, Shakespeare in Love, Proof, Killshot, The Debt, and both The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel films previously. The screenplay is written by Jonathan Perera. EuropaCorp will release Miss Sloane in theaters starting December 9th later this year. First impression?
