TRAILER: New Orleans-Shot Drama ‘Trumbo’

NE1X91StsfTQ4a_1_bThe trailer for Trumbo has been released. The New Orleans-shot drama stars Bryan Cranston as Dalton Trumbo, the famous screenwriter who took on Washington by refusing to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Famously, he wouldn’t “name names” of those who might be Communists working in the motion picture industry. For it, he was blacklisted from work.

He still managed to work under pseudonyms and even won two Academy Awards while blacklisted, for writing The Brave One and Roman Holiday. Directed by Jay Roach, Trumbo stars Cranston, Helen Mirren, Diane Lane, Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Louis C.K. and James DuMont. The film is set for an awards season release on November 5.
