New International Trailer: “Trumbo”

On the one hand Jay Roach’s “Trumbo” looks to be an Oscar bait movie in every way – an exploration of the communist witch-hunt that took place during the late 1940s when screenwriters saw their careers and lives ruined by spurious charges and innuendo.

On the other there’s some strong comedic talent packing the supporting cast and a slight over the top sense to everything here which means the tone sometimes seems a little off. Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, John Goodman, Louis C.K., Alan Tudyk and Michael Stuhlbarg star in the film which opens in the U.S. on November 6th.
