"At this rate you will never finish." Netflix has revealed the full-length trailer + poster for David Fincher's new film Mank, arriving in theaters this fall. Fincher is back!! He's directing a script originally written by his late father, Jack Fincher, about the writer of Citizen Kane, named Herman J. Mankiewicz. The black & white film follows "Mank's" tumultuous development of Orson Welles' iconic masterpiece Citizen Kane as he races to finish it. Starring Gary Oldman as Herman J.

The screenplay is written by the late Jack Fincher, David's father (who passed away in 2003). It's produced by Ceán Chaffin, David Fincher, Eric Roth, and Douglas Urbanski. This has not yet premiered at any festivals or elsewhere. Netflix will release Fincher's Mank in select theaters starting in November, then streaming on Netflix starting December 4th. Still looks good?
