Truth Trailer

"Here's to a great story." Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the first official trailer for Truth, the drama about Dan Rather and his controversy in 2004 reporting on the President. Robert Redford stars as Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchett plays Mary Mapes, his cohort at CBS working on putting together the news. The supporting cast includes Elisabeth Moss, Topher Grace, Dennis Quaid, Bruce Greenwood, David Lyons and John Benjamin Hickey. Our writer Marco just reviewed Truth out of TIFF 2015 a few days ago, calling it "an adult drama that pulls no punches and is massively entertaining". This looks pretty dang good, an intelligent counterpoint to the truth-telling in the other journalism film Spotlight. Check it.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for James Vanderbilt's Truth, originally from Yahoo:

For more updates follow @sonyclassics. A behind-the-scenes look at news anchor Dan Rather during his final days at C.B.S. News when he broadcast a damaging report about how President Bush relied on privilege and family connections to avoid fighting in the Viet Nam War. Truth is directed by James Vanderbilt, making his directorial debut. The screenplay was written by Vanderbilt, adapted from Mary Mapes' memoir titled Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The film will likely hit a few festivals in the fall. Sony Pictures Classics will then release Truth in select theaters starting October 16th. Truth just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, where Marco reviewed it here. Thoughts?

The bean matters... wait, that was the advert with my advert... Seems alright though. Will need to read up on that Bush falseness and fakery, his son was a bit of a coke sniffing dropout legend too, amazingly he got to be prez also. Mad times.

Still no more absurd than electing Ronald Reagan as President, really.

I know, I know. Insanity. But those are the times we live in, Donald Trump is running now and people actually like him. I laugh about it, but also despair.

We laugh to keep from crying, right? ^ ^

Robert Redford strived for decades to prove he was more than just handsome. With this tripe and his usual political foolishness he's proven that he is as expected, handsome but an intellectual lightweight.

Yeah man, these people are just good readers.

Documents. I'll see it.

The truth is as malleable as a sand. Put it in the right hands and you can have crystal goblets.

Give this phenomenon of an actor that goes by the name of Cate Blanchett another Oscar immediately. Man, this woman really is in a league of her own.

Seriously. AND she's in Carol this year, too.

Ah... if only CBS would do the same investigative reporting into Hillary Clinton. But nope, they gave her a pass because ultimately, even our media chooses political sides.
