Its focus is on three stories: an ambitious politician giving an interview to tough reporter, an army platoon being ordered to go on a top secret mission by said politician, and a professor trying to talk a promising student into turning his life around.
It looked like Oscar-bait. It turned out to be a footnote to the failure to resurrect United Artists.
United Artists was originally founded in 1919 by Charlie Chaplin,

In its own statement, distributor Twentieth Century Fox made no reference to Singer’s health, stating: “Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer.” Although the film’s December 2018 release date remains, the studio offered no timeline for his return.
