Charlize Theron is Megyn Kelly in new ‘Bombshell’ trailer

By Flora  /  22 Aug 2019 (Thursday)

The drama, ‘Bombshell’ is an upcoming Lionsgate movie about the sexual misconduct allegations against late Fox News executive Roger Ailes, has dropped its first trailer, which features Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly, Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson and Margot Robbie as a fictionalised producer, in a tense elevator ride.

Though not much of the plot is revealed in the trailer, we get to see the transformations of the actors into the TV journalists and Theron looks strikingly similar to the real-life Kelly. 

John Lithgow will play Ailes. The cast also includes Kate McKinnon, Allison Janney, Connie Britton, Rob Delaney and Malcolm McDowell as Rupert Murdoch. Directed by Jay Roach, the film follows the accusations that led to the CEO's resignation in July of 2016 after multiple female employees at Fox News in America came forward with allegations of sexual harassment against the former CEO.
