Tense ‘Bombshell’ trailer handles the Fox News scandal and Roger Ailes

By Proma Khosla

Not for the very first time in 2019, Hollywood will turn its concentrate on the sexual harassment accusations that led to Roger Ailes resigning from Fox News– this time in the form of Bombshell, a function movie starring Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, and Margot Robbie.

The trailer features all three females standing tensely in an elevator, barely speaking but acting hard enough to break a sweat. You can virtually see the secret looming in between them as they weigh the repercussions it might enjoy.

Kidman and Theron play Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly, respectively, both of whom spoke up against Ailes in2016 Robbie’s character, Kayla Pospisil, is a Fox manufacturer created for the movie; together, the three of them form the beginnings of a whisper network, the type women have utilized for years to caution each other of sexually predatory guys in the office.

While Showtime’s The Loudest Voice examined Ailes’ career and house life over decades, Bombshell will focus specifically on the tumultuous end of his public career (he preserved ties to Fox and Rupert Murdoch up until his death in 2017), focusing– if the trailer is any indicator– on the ladies who had actually had enough.

Bombshell strikes theaters in December 20.
