New Trailer for Jay Roach's Excellent 'Trumbo' with Bryan Cranston

"Am I accused of a crime?" Entertainment One in the UK has debuted a brand new international trailer for Jay Roach's Trumbo, the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, played by Bryan Cranston. In the 1940s, Trumbo and many of his friends are accused of being communists, and this film tells the story of how they defeated congress and the pure evil House UnAmerican Activities Committee. I recently had the chance to see Trumbo and it's an excellent film, playing strong on comedy with outstanding performances. The cast includes Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning and many others. This trailer is much more serious than expected, but I still highly recommend watching. Enjoy!
Here's the new international trailer for Jay Roach's Trumbo, from Entertainment One's YouTube:
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.
Damn, this looks fantastic.

Communism is one thing that Americans never really understood. Of course, there won't be something spectacular in this, but it will, probably, be watchable. Hopefully ...

Hey why no "thoughts" topic on the movie "Sicario"..it came out last weekend and that was better than "the martian"

I think maybe SICARIO was not a wide release. Expect it this weekend.

Cranston is such a good actor, but it is a shame he will probably never outlive "Heisenberg". Still though, this looks like a ton of fun.

i don't know. a lot of people thought he'd never outlive "Hal"
