As war sirens ring out, Winston Churchill speaks to his country. The clock is ticking and the “full weight of the world is on your shoulders.” Gary Oldman takes on Churchill in Darkest Hour and the new trailer from Focus Features gives us another glimpse into Oldman’s brilliant portrayal of the British Prime Minister.
Invasion looms, the fall of France is imminent and Britain is facing its darkest hour. The fate of Western Europe rests on Churchill’s leadership. While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds.
Watch the magnificent new trailer from Focus Features.
Darkest Hour is released on November 22 and also stars Kristen Scott Thomas, Lily James, and Ben Mendelsohn. Joe Wright directs.
