The First Trailer for Steven Spielberg’s The Post has Finally Arrived
After hearing about The Post for months now, 20th Century Fox has finally released a trailer for the highly anticipated new film from director Steven Spielberg and screenwriters Liz Hannah and Josh Singer.
Upon watching the trailer, I can safely say that The Post is going to be a last-minute Award film. I was pretty certain up to tonight that most of my picks for next year’s Academy Awards were already set in stone but after seeing this trailer, The Post is most likely going to shake things up now quite a bit. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised given the level of talent in the film and behind the scenes. Leave it up to Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep to release a film that perfectly fits into the political climate of today despite the fact that the story within the film takes place several decades ago.
Just going off the trailer alone, I foresee several award nominations for this film including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Director, and possibly, Best Adapted Screenplay. I wouldn’t be surprised if the film makes a surprise premiere at the AFI Fest next week considering the buzz around this film and the fact that All the Money in the World was just yanked from the festival’s line-up leaving a huge hole in the programming.
The Post is based on the true story of Katharine Graham and her fight to expose a massive government cover-up. The film is directed by Steven Spielberg and features an all-star cast that includes Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, Zach Woods.
