The film will follow the 2017 ousting of the late chairman and CEO of Fox News Roger Ailes, after allegations of sexual harassment were first brought to light in 2014. The story will be told all through the perspective of the three women who took him down: Megyn Kelly (Theron), Gretchen Carlson (Kidman), and the fictional Kayla Pospisil (Robbie).
Bombshell was previously titled Fair and Balanced, which just so happens to be the former slogan of the right-wing news network. John Lithgow takes on the role of Ailes, while the rest of that star-studded cast includes Allison Janney, Alice Eve, Mark Duplass, Malcolm McDowell, Connie Britton, and Kate McKinnon. Watch the latest trailer for Bombshell above and get ready to dig into the scandal when the movie hits theaters on Dec. 20.
