How often do you get a film starring two Academy Award winners and a nominee?
With Lionsgate’s Bombshell, Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, and Margot Robbie will be serving you up one hell of a story!
Based on a true story on Fox News, Theron plays Megyn Kelly, a real-life anchor at Fox, while Kidman plays Gretchen Carlson. Robbie’s character Katya Pospisil is entirely fictional, acting as a producer to Kelly and Carlson. The premise is when Kelly and Carlson, and Pospisil take on Fox News mogul Roger Ailes whom they accused of sexual harassment. The drama unfolds as Fox staff gets divided on who they should side with.
The first teaser got us excited because it is just so gripping, with little dialogue being said.
And my, Charlize Theron looks so unrecognizable in her make up!
The reactions on Twitter are lit. Many single out Charlize for her resemblance to Megyn.
This Bombshell trailer has me sooo invested! And this Charlize Theron transformation is actually creepy good. pic.twitter.com/hmGQDKZBxF

I cannot even look at Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly in Bombshell. It creeps me the f*ck out. I used to complain about biopics casting people who didn't look much like the person they're portraying, but be careful what you wish for. This is not what I meant. pic.twitter.com/KRfLwDXOmJ

Bombshell will hit theaters this December in the US. We sure hope that this movie will be screened in Malaysia!
