Gary Oldman is Winston Churchill in New ‘Darkest Hour’ Trailer

Winston Churchill Biopic

Focus Features has revealed the new Darkest Hour trailer, which stars a totally unrecognizable Gary Oldman as the incredibly-quotable British Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill.

Directed by Joe Wright (“Atonement”) and written by Anthony McCarten (“The Theory of Everything”), the film covers four weeks in 1940. Oldman is joined onscreen by Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup, and Ben Mendelsohn.

Check out the new one-sheet below along with the new trailer.

Winston Churchill Biopic

“Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill 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.”
