New DARKEST HOUR Poster Released Ahead of Final Trailer Tomorrow
Gary Oldman is barely perceptible behind the cloud of cigar smoke in with the lowered gaze. Instead, you get an eerie sense of seeing Winston Churchill chewing on his signature tobacco contemplating the difficult choice ahead of him.
That is what you see, anyway, in the latest poster Focus has released about its upcoming historical drama, Darkest Hour. The film, which we reviewed last month at the Telluride Film Festival, will be released in select cities on November 22 ahead of what is expected to be serious awards consideration.
The movie, directed by Atonement and Pride and Prejudice director Joe Wright, stars Oldman as the famous Prime Minister during the first days of his term, when he is forced to confront foes at home as well as abroad. Hitler’s army has made devastating gains in Western Europe, leading to the stunning defeat of the Allies at Dunkirk. Meanwhile, Churchill faces internal plots for his demise before he’s even appointed by the King (Ben Mendelsohn) at the hands of political rivals.
Stay tuned for the last trailer of the excellent film, tomorrow.
