Truth is about to hit theaters (October 16), and it seems both surprising and curiously ironic that it isn’t getting a bigger marketing push. Anything with Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett demands a serious effort to get people into seats, and if you then add Topher Grace, Elisabeth Moss, and Dennis Quaid, you have to wonder why you haven’t been hearing about this one almost non-stop for months.
Then you realize it’s a movie about Dan Rather and the news story about the President’s alleged Awol status during Vietnam, and it dawns on you that you’re probably going to this, or not, no matter who they cast and/or how much marketing they throw at you.

Crackle has recruited Dennis Quaid for The Art of More, its marquee piece of original content, but in a crowded marketplace can it make enough noise?
He’s known, of course, for feature film productions such as The Day After Tomorrow as well as other big-budget spectacles that play out on cinema screens over a couple of hours. But The Art of More, a forthcoming TV drama for which Dennis Quaid is a star and executive producer, represents a different kind of creative gamble.
The series, premiering in November, is the first one-hour original drama from Crackle, Sony Pictures Television’s streaming TV service. That makes the show a new kind of media from a still relatively new player that’s looking to distinguish itself amid the pitched battle between streaming content companies for talent, buzz and viewer attention.

10 years ago, legendary news anchor Dan Rather was forced to step down from his post as CBS News anchor after reporting that President George W. Bush went Awol while serving for the National Guard during the Vietnam War. This fall, the story behind how that scandal unfolded will be told in the new drama Truth, which has just released the first trailer and poster, through Yahoo! Movies. Robert Redford stars as Dan Rather, with Cate Blanchett playing his producer Mary Mapes. Sony Pictures classics has handed out an October 16 release date, following its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Based on the book "Truth and Duty" by Mary Mapes, in the vein of All the President's Men and The Insider, Truth is the incredible true story of Mary Mapes (played by Cate Blanchett), an award-winning CBS News Journalist and Dan Rather's producer, who broke the Abu-Ghraib prison abuse story, »
"Here's to a great story." Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the first official trailer for Truth, the drama about Dan Rather and his controversy in 2004 reporting on the President. Robert Redford stars as Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchett plays Mary Mapes, his cohort at CBS working on putting together the news. The supporting cast includes Elisabeth Moss, Topher Grace, Dennis Quaid, Bruce Greenwood, David Lyons and John Benjamin Hickey. Our writer Marco just reviewed Truth out of Tiff 2015 a few days ago, calling it "an adult drama that pulls no punches and is massively entertaining". This looks pretty dang good, an intelligent counterpoint to the truth-telling in the other journalism film Spotlight. Check it. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for James Vanderbilt's Truth, originally from Yahoo: For more updates follow @sonyclassics.

Read More: Watch: 'Truth' Clip Has the First Glimpse of Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett in Action "Truth" centers on beloved newsman Dan Rather and veteran news producer Mary Mapes as they break the story that ultimately broke their careers. The film depicts the 2004 controversy now known as Rathergate, wherein Rather falsely reported on CBS' "60 Minutes" that George W. Bush had gone Awol during the Vietnam War. The ensuing firestorm shook CBS News to its core and forced Rather to resign. "Truth" depicts how the lies made their way to air. The film, which enjoyed its world premiere at Tiff earlier this month, stars Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett as Rather and Mapes, respectively. The drama also features Topher Grace, Elisabeth Moss and Dennis Quaid and marks writer-director James Vanderbilt's first effort behind the camera. "Truth" hits theaters on October 16.

Rathergate was the term given to the newsroom controversy surrounding denounced journalist and news anchor Dan Rather, who was excised from his position at the helm of CBS News after his scathing report on George W. Bush’s alleged war record blew up in the face of both him and his loyal producer and friend, Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett). It’s a fascinating, complex slice of journalism history, and one that will underpin James Vanderbilt’s political drama Truth, which today unveiled a new trailer in the wake of its premiere at Tiff 2015.
Marking Vanderbilt’s directorial debut – following his producing role on David Fincher’s Zodiac – Truth stars Captain America: The Winter Solider alum Robert Redford in the role of the shunned reporter, who shines a spotlight on Bush’s time in the National Guard and questions whether the former Potus went Awol during the Vietnam War.

The film chronicles the story Mapes and Rather uncovered that a sitting Us president may have been Awol from the United States National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. When the story blew up in their face, the ensuing scandal ruined Dan Rather’s career, nearly changed a Us Presidential election, and almost took down all of CBS News in the process. The new movie stars Cate Blanchett, Robert Redford, Topher Grace, Elisabeth Moss, and Dennis Quaid. Written and directed by James Vanderbilt. “Truth” opens in theaters on October 16. (via Yahoo! Movies)

Cate Blanchett stars as the 60 Minutes producer who developed the story about President George W. Bush going Awol during his military service in the trailer for Truth. The drama shows the behind-the-scenes portion of the events that led to Dan Rather's resignation in 2008. Shortly after breaking the story, the team's source was questioned and a media with hunt ensued. Knowing the outcome, it should be interesting to see an insider's perspective on the scandal. Robert Redford is playing Dan Rather, opposite Dennis Quaid, Elisabeth Moss, and Topher Grace. The movie will be in select theaters on Oct. 16! »

We kind of thought the fall film schedule was pretty filled up, especially from Sony Pictures Classics who already have a rich slate coming, but last month the studio reminded us there was yet another Cate Blanchett film on the way. Based on the "Rathergate" scandal of 2010 — venerable CBS news anchor Dan Rather stepping down from his post after an erroneous report ruined his career — "Truth" is an upcoming drama starring Blanchett and Robert Redford that is the directorial debut of James Vanderbilt, the writer behind "Zodiac," both "Amazing Spider-Man" films and “White House Down” among many others. The movie also co-stars Topher Grace, Elisabeth Moss, and Dennis Quaid. Here's the official synopsis: Truth is based on the book “Truth and Duty” by Mary Mapes. In the vein of “All The President’s Men” and “The Insider,” it is the incredible true story of Mary Mapes (played by Cate Blanchet »

One of the biggest success stories of the Fall film festival circuit so far is "Truth," the director debut of "Zodiac" scribe James Vanderbilt which managed to land a massive cast including Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace, Stacey Keach, Bruce Greenwood and Elisabeth Moss.
The first trailer and poster are now out for the Sony Pictures Classics film which deals with the famed 2010 scandal involving venerable CBS news anchor Dan Rather who retired after erroneous report about George W. Bush ruined his career and almost took down all of CBS News in the process.
The film gets a limited release on October 16th before a nationwide expansion later in the month.

After writing Zodiac and some Sony tentpoles that are best left unnamed, James Vanderbilt embarked on his directorial debut, Truth. The drama follows Robert Redford as CBS anchor Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett as producer Mary Mapes in the adaptation of the true 60 Minutes II scandal surrounding the Killian documents. Adapted from Mapes’ 2005 memoir, it tracks their flimsy story that George W. Bush got the upper hand from his father to avoid the draft.
We said in our review, “Unfortunately, just as Vanderbilt seeks to show how politically unbiased Mapes and her crack team were in uncovering what looks to be truth, neither he nor she—whose memoir the film is based upon—are. With a soaring score and lingering shots doing everything but placing an angelic aura around the frame’s subject, Truth is less about finding truth or explaining how fluid the search for it is than to »

As befitting his nuanced, observational approach toward narrative in his films (“Chop Shop”, “Goodbye Solo”), director Ramin Bahrani didn’t force his latest project “99 Homes” away from its path towards genre. “Initially when I went down to Florida [for research into the U.S. housing crisis], I thought I was making something more like my other films—a social drama,” explained Bahrani when we spoke with him recently in Los Angeles. “But Florida told me, 'No, you’re making a thriller.' Because every real estate broker carries a gun; because the corruption is so mind-boggling.” Following the swift eviction of the Nash family led by Dennis (Andrew Garfield), and Dennis’ uneasy partnership with the ruthless broker (Michael Shannon) who profited from it, the film also represents a step up in scale for Bahrani. His last feature “At Any Price” toyed with the combination of his humanist style with recognizable faces (Zac Efron, Dennis Quaid), but here he perfects that groove with. »
