Miss Sloane Movie Trailer

"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?

It's weird how so many of the "strong, smart" women in movies these days are all played by redheads (Chastain, Amy Adams, Bryce Dallas, Julianne Moore to an extent)....

Pippi Longstocking...

Not to mention Scarlet Witch and Black Widow (who has the same backstory as Pippi Longstocking)

JUDGE Pippi Longstocking...

Judge Pippi? It flew over my head. ;D

Lame attempt at a joke to make Pippi more authoritative in nature...

I never thought of that. And I see no reason why would that matter. Attack of the red headed women. Maybe they should make some kind of franchise with that, huh?

I'd dig it

Americans worship guns. Reminds me of a scene from Beneath the Planet of the Apes.

That's about as ignorant as saying "Muslims are terrorists". Elevate your argument man. A small subset of the population are fanatical about the second amendment. The majority are like myself. We own guns but are very sensible about the whole thing. Stereotyping always seems to be fine when it's aimed towards white, christian, male, americans

;D It's not about white christian males. Canadian and European people who are white and Christian (legacy ?) don't have such passionate relationship with guns. this is an american idiosyncrasy. Look into my eyes, and tell me you don't have a boner when you stroke your Glock. It rhymes! ;D Of course, we can find its roots in the events that lead to the birth of the USA, but that's another debate.

"Look into my eyes, and tell me you don't have a boner when you stroke your Glock." And there's the stupid liberal talking point made ideology pouring through. Only liberals could take an object and put it on the same level of sex. It's almost like they've never used one huh...

They have never used one what? One object or on sex? ;D It was just a metaphor. A boner is the summum of pleasure, manly speaking.

The last thing this planet needs is more guns.

Once you ban murder, rape, corruption, theft, etc and lead the whole world to singing Kumbaya... we can have that discussion.

backwardsprogress on Oct 7, 2016

Those things are already banned and guns are only making it worse.

Interesting how inanimate objects are getting up and murdering/raping people. Let me rephrase for the thickest of individuals... when you are able to make murder, rape, corruption, theft, etc disappear entirely from this planet... then maybe we can have that discussion.

And nobody did shooting throughout the trailer. That's something these days. And yes, J. Chastain is nice and sexy again ...

Love Chastain, but this is a hard pass.

These people are way too powerful. The absolute of definition of corruption.

DAVIDPD on Sep 13, 2016

Has nothing to do with corruption. Has everything to do with the stupidity of the left arguing itself into oblivion.

Like the actress... but can't wait to see stupid shite like this bomb at the box office for probably the most obvious of reasons. So so so many different forms of lobbying and the idiots choose gun rights to tackle.
