Truth and The Big Short Trailers
A debut trailer has just dropped for James Vanderbilt's real story drama, Truth. Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett stars as former CBS News producer, Mary Mapes, who faced massive amounts of scrutiny and shaming alongside her famed news anchor, Dan Rather (Robert Redford), after reporting a false story just prior to the 2004 election claiming then-president, George W. Bush, of using his father's political ties to avoid being drafted during the Vietnam war. Truth tells a controversial story that's guaranteed to stir the political pot. Arriving in theaters this October, just out the films trailer below.
Arriving late this year is the economic drama, The Big Short, from director Adam McKay (Anchorman and Step Brothers). Despite McKay's history as a comedy filmmaker, the combination of a late-December limited release, dramatic content revolving around the 2008 economic collapse and a star-studded cast featuring Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell all signal a potential Oscar contender. When four outsiders well versed in high finance discover that the credit and housing bubble is about to explode, they join forces to take on the corrupt banking system for their lack of ethics. The Big Short's trailer is one you won't want to miss, so check it out below.
