Darkest Hour

Focus Features has released their first trailer and poster for their upcoming film, DARKEST HOUR, starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill and directed by Joe Wright! Check it out down below!

A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

Written by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything). McCarten and Lisa Bruce produce with Working Title’s co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, and Douglas Urbanski, who reteam with Focus and Working Title after Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, for which Oldman was nominated in the Best Actor category.

Oldman is joined alongside Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup and Ben Mendelsohn.

Darkest Hour will hit domestically in select cities on November 22.
