12 August 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

For those awaiting a big Bryan Cranston comeback since "Breaking Bad" went off the air two years ago, the nail biting is finally over.  The first trailer for "Trumbo" has arrived ahead of the film's Special Presentations premiere at Tiff next month. Cranston has teamed with director Jay Roach to chronicle the dark days of Hollywood blacklisting, when screenwriters were called upon to renounce their Communist sentiments or risk being expelled from the system they worked tirelessly to dominate. Celebrated screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who wrote "Spartacus," "Roman Holiday," "Johnny Got His Gun" and "The Brave One," found himself at the epicenter of this dogfight and resisted, tooth-and-nail, being cut down for his own principles and ideology. It cost him his career. Read More: Teasing More Toronto Reveals "Trumbo" also features supporting roles from Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, John »

First Trailer For Trumbo

12 August 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Bryan Cranston leading an impressive cast, which includes Diane Lane, John Goodman, Louis C.K., and Helen Mirren, the first trailer for Trumbo has come our way via Fandango, and Jay Roach’s (Austin Powers, Meet the Parents, Recount) telling of the true life tale of black listed screen writer Dalton Trumbo (who won two Oscars for Roman Holiday and The Brave One, written under pseudonyms, while in prison) promises to be a whole lot of fun, be it Cranston’s boisterous turn as the defiant Hollywood scribe or just the sight of John Goodman with a baseball bat. Roach seems to have found the right mix of his earlier comedies and his later, more political minded work, and the is one trailer that definitely has caught my interest.

Watch: First Trailer for Bryan Cranston’s ‘Trumbo’

12 August 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Recently launched distributor Bleecker Street has released the first trailer for Bryan Cranston’s “Trumbo,” two-and-a-half months before its Nov. 6 launch in the U.S.

The film is based on the true story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Cranston), who had been one of Hollywood’s top screenwriters before he was forced to testify in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947. When he refused to cooperate, he was sent to prison for 11 months.

In the trailer, Cranston plays Trumbo as a chain smoker with ample reservoirs of sarcasm and resourcefulness. “Many questions can be answered yes or no only by a moron or a slave,” he tells the committee.

In response to being blacklisted, Trumbo turned to ghost-writing scripts and was publicly credited in 1960 with “Exodus,” followed by “Spartacus.” “If we get one big movie, we can get all the big movies,” Cranston notes in the trailer.

Helen Mirren co-stars as Trumbo’s nemesis, »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Bates Suffers in Contrived, Overlong Drama About Christian Persecution of Jews

12 May 2015 7:17 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Fixer' movie with Alan Bates, Dirk Bogarde and Ian Holm (background) 'The Fixer' movie review: 1968 anti-Semitism drama wrecked by cast, direction, and writing In 1969, director John Frankenheimer declared that he felt "better about The Fixer than anything I've ever done in my life." Considering Frankenheimer's previous output – Seven Days in May, the much admired The Manchurian Candidate – it is hard to believe that the director was being anything but a good P.R. man for his latest release. Adapted from Bernard Malamud's National Book Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel (itself based on the real story of Jewish brick-factory worker Menahem Mendel Beilis), The Fixer is an overlong, overblown, and overwrought contrivance that, albeit well meaning, carelessly misuses most of the talent involved while sadistically abusing the patience – and at times the intelligence – of its viewers. John Frankenheimer overindulges in 1960s kitsch John Frankenheimer »
