Trumbo Trailer Online

Summer is nearing its close and we’re starting to see something of films that could end up in the awards conversation. One drawing plenty of chatter is Trumbo, starring Bryan Cranston. Check out the first trailer below.

Trumbo tells the sorry chapter of American film history when, if were you a Hollywood player and not draped in the Stars and Stripes at all times, you were likely to be hauled up in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) committee and grilled about your political allegiances. In the worst cases – like Dalton Trumbo’s – professional exile resulted.

From the looks of this, Cranston is on fire in the lead role, delivering Trumbo’s lines with the machine-gun patter of someone who knows exactly what they’re doing. And he’s surrounded by a fantastic cast that includes Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Elle Fanning, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, Stephen Root, Michael Stuhlbarg, Roger Bart, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Louis C.K.


With Jay Roach directing John McNamara’s script (itself adapted from Bruce Cook’s book on the man), Trumbo will be out in the US on November 6 before heading here on January 22.
