BRYAN CRANSTON PRESENTS THE TRAILER FOR TRUMBO


No, rly, Bryan Cranston actually presents this trailer. Appropriately, he also stars in this film: Trumbo, a biopic of the blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. If mid-range American biopics of historical characters whose surnames form the titles of their films are your thing, then this one's for you, along with many other mediocre alternatives. Trumbo merits inclusion on this site because I rather got into the spirit of it, with its shamelessly anti-authoritarian, left-wing stance. Could be fun, probably won't be much more (Jay Roach is the director). After a Toronto Special Presentation, the film is released in the US on the 6th of November, and in the UK on the 22nd of January, suggesting that Oscar hopes may be high. My only hope is that they're not too high...
