After much anticipation, Universal Pictures has debuted the first trailer and one-sheet for the upcoming film DARKEST HOUR, from acclaimed director Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice). Take a look at the trailer in the video player above and the new one-sheet 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 (Academy Award nominee Gary 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 plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
The film boasts a stellar cast in the form of Gary Oldman, Kristen Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup and Ben Mendelsohn.
Joe Wright, who has directed classics such as ATONEMENT, HANNA, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, ANNA KARENINA, is bringing to life the script penned by Anthony McCarten who also wrote the screenplay for THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING.
DARKEST HOUR WILL RELEASE IN UK CINEMAS ON 12 JANUARY 2018
