‘The Post’ Trailer: Spielberg Tackles the Pentagon Papers

the post

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for ‘The Post‘. The film, which was directed by Steven Spielberg, is centered around the the publishing of the Pentagon Papers by The Washington Post in 1971. The film follows Meryl Streep‘s Katharine Graham and Tom Hanks‘ Ben Bradlee as they form an unlikely partnership, fighting to publish the Pentagon Papers – a series of documents that proved the government lied about the scope of the Vietnam war for decades. The film also stars Alison Brie, Sarah Paulson, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Jesse Plemons, Michael Stuhlberg, Zach Woods, and Bradley Whitford.

The film is set to be released on December 22, 2017, just in time for the close of awards season. Although Spielberg is surely hard at work on Ready Player One, he managed to slip in the drama that quite honestly has a good chance of nabbing a decent amount of Academy nominations. Despite the Stellar cast (this marks the first time that Streep has worked with both Hanks and Spielberg), the film also tackles a very timely subject with the battle between press and government that is depicted in the trailer. I honestly have no doubt that the film will be good, but the true question is if the film will be as oscar bait-y as this trailer is.

Here’s the official Trailer, Synopsis, and Poster below:

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.

The Post marks the first time Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have collaborated on a project. In addition to directing, Spielberg produces along with Amy Pascal and Kristie Macosko Krieger. The script was written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer, and the film features an acclaimed ensemble cast including Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford and Zach Woods.
