TRUMBO (2015) International Movie Trailer: Bryan Cranston & The Red Scare in Hollywood

Bryan Cranston Trumbo International Trailer

Trumbo International Movie Trailer. Jay Roach‘s Trumbo (2015) movie trailer stars Bryan Cranston, Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, and Louis C.K. Trumbo‘s plot synopsis: “The successful career of Hollywood screenwriter, Dalton Trumbo, comes to an end when he is blacklisted in the 1940s for being a Communist.”

This looks great. This trailer is a somewhat somber take on the earlier cut, which makes sense – they’re trying to catch all the quadrants. This seems aimed at an audience that only sees films that look like prestige, Awards pictures. In any case, I’m curious about the film and Jay Roach directing this.

According to Empire, “There’s a rich – and no doubt, deliberate – irony that Hollywood’s database of exciting unmade scripts is called the Black List. Back in the late ‘40s, the blacklist was exactly where a screenwriter didn’t want to be. One, Spartacus and Roman Holiday writer Trumbo (Cranston), found himself cast into movie prison when he fell foul of the communist witch hunts of the time.

Roach’s film will show how his career was nearly snuffed out by those spurious charges and innuendo. It’s set against a rich Hollywood backdrop haunted by famous figures from Hopper to Kirk Douglas (Dean O’Gorman), Edward G. Robinson (Michael Stuhlbarg) and Otto Preminger (Christian Berkel). Lane is the woman who stands by him as he’s haunted by the Red Scare sweeping through the US government and his own film studios.

With Roach directing John McNamara’s script (itself adapted from Bruce Cook’s book on the man), Trumbo will land on these shores in January 2016.”
