Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill in First Trailer of Darkest Hour
Focus Features has released the first trailer for director Joe Wright’s historical drama Darkest Hour, opening in Philippine cinemas on January 2018. This also marks our first look at Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill for the film.
Written by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything), the film stars Oscar-nominee Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill and begins on the eve of World War II, chronicling Churchill’s difficult push to get England to stand up to Nazi Germany and enter the war rather than negotiate a treaty.
The film also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup, and Ben Mendelsohn.
Darkest Hour is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
