‘Truth’: Movie Reignites Heated Debate Over ‘60 Minutes II’ Scandal

6 October 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Truth” is revisiting a painful chapter for CBS News. The upcoming movie, starring Cate Blanchett as producer Mary Mapes and Robert Redford as Dan Rather, is an unwelcome reminder of past mistakes for several people who lived through the saga of the 2004 “60 Minutes II” report on President George W. Bush’s time in the Texas Air National Guard.

Some who are depicted in the controversial film, which is based on Mapes’ 2005 book “Truth and Duty: The Press, the President and the Privilege of Power,” are critical of the conclusions drawn by the veteran investigative journalist.

They were hopeful that the picture, which debuts in theaters on Oct. 16, would come and go quickly in limited release. But Blanchett is generating Oscar buzz as a best actress contender for her tour de force performance as the hard-charging producer swept up in a firestorm of partisan politics and media scrutiny of her work. »

'Truth' Trailer Stars Robert Redford as Dan Rather

23 September 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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, »

First Look: Sony Classics Dates 'Truth' in Oscary October Slot

1 August 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Just the other day a reader alerted me to a report at BoxOffice.com that Sony Classics had dated James Vanderbilt's Truth for an Oct. 16 release. It seemed odd in that a) the film hadn't been announced for either Venice or Toronto; b) we hadn't seen a trailer or promotional still; c) Sony Classics didn't have the film even listed on their press site; and d) one would expect all these things given the awards buzz surrounding star Cate Blanchett in the role of Mary Mapes. As it turns out, the report was accurate, the film will arrive in October and we also have the first look at Blanchett and Robert Redford in the upcoming film. Of course, there's a bit of decision-making to be had when it comes to Blanchett as she is also looked at as a top contender for Best Actress for her role in Carol. »
