"How do you say 'no' to God?" Open Road Films has debuted a trailer for Tom McCarthy's Spotlight, a newsroom thriller about the Boston Globe journalists who investigated and uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation in the Catholic Church. Oscar-nominated actor Michael Keaton leads the way, but the ensemble cast includes Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo, John Slattery, Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup. This is premiering at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals this fall, and looks like a fascinating journalistic thriller, reminding us how much work goes into breaking stories. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer for Tom McCarthy's Spotlight, found on YouTube:

The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core. Spotlight is directed by the very talented actor-filmmaker Tom McCarthy, of the films The Station Agent, The Visitor, Win Win and The Cobbler previously. The script is co-written by McCarthy and Josh Singer. The film will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall, before opening in theaters a few months later. Open Road Films will be releasing McCarthy's Spotlight in theaters starting November 6th this fall. Who's interested?

Not everything can get that label! It looks good, but not my most anticipated of the year.

Squint your eyes and it's a great FIncher or Michael Mann film

Definitely not a lighthearted romp. Movies like this command the audience's attention. One and done when it comes to viewing though.

Thanks Doc. Maybe you should take a little of your own advise!~~

I like that question about saying 'no' to God. Scary thing indeed. Especially when it comes to children. Some people are just bad, unfortunately. ... There definitely should be more movies like this ... As for the cast and the tone of the trailer, I'll be definitely watching this ... And yes, it reminds a bit of Insider (M. Mann with Al Pacino and R. Crowe) ...
