This weeks trailer of the week is:
Darkest Hour (Trailer #1)
See that guy in the video thumbnail, yep, that’s Gary Oldman (when did he get fat I know right!). Impressive make up and prostetics aside, this movie looks to totally be a vehicle for an already great actor to act his balls off, and give us possibly his best ever performance, and thats really exciting. And as much as he is being “made up” to look like Winston Churchill, he still has to ACT like him, and act thought that make up and prosthetics no less.
Set around the earliest days of his appointment to the office of prime minster of Egland, and as the trailer states, not being anyone first choice, and follows him through one of the most turbulent times in our history. Given the decision to try and reason and bargain with the likes of Hitler, or fight to the bitter end, and stand behind those decisions for better or worse. Gary Oldman has made his career as a chameleon, and he’s always found a way to fully immerse himself in a role, to the point where you’d genuinely forget that that role was being played by Oldman. This will be the first time to see him so heavily made up, and its really exciting to see what he can do with that. Is Darkest Hour on your radar, and are you looking forward to Oldman’s performance?
