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....

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! 🙂

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?
