He’s regarded as a ‘mastermind’ for the allies during World War 2 and this January the Darkest Hour directed by Joe Wright shows off another side of Winston Churchill. Universal Pictures has sent us a new batch of character posters including Gary Oldman as Churchill.
The posters themselves gives a closer glimpse of the man behind the public figure. A proper close up of the amazing transformation Oldman went to become the legend.From the early film festival reviews, the movie will be aiming to make some noise in the awards season.
Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (BAFTA-Award® winner Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation.
As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a sceptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
Darkest Hour will be released in the UK and Ireland from 12th January 2018 (USA 22nd November).
The movie also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup, and Ben Mendelsohn.
