Bombshell Trailer: The Silence, Stares, and Wigs Say It All

Three blonde Oscar-nominated actresses walk into an elevator … It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but there are no smiles in the trailer for Bombshell. Only tense stares that will get Charlize Theron and her hair another Academy Award. Bombshell, out December 20, is based on the experience of female Fox News employees with founder Roger Ailes and, as a result, each other. Charlize Theron is unrecognizable as Megyn Kelly, Nicole Kidman plays Gretchen Carlson with coiffed perfection, and Margot Robbie is in the role of Kayla Pospisil, a fictional character created for the film. The rest of the ensemble includes John Lithgow as Roger Ailes; Connie Britton as Beth Ailes; Allison Janney as Ailes’s legal counsel Susan Estrich; Kate McKinnon as a Fox News employee; and Nazanin Boniadi as former Fox News correspondent Rudi Bakhtiar. There’s just one question: Who’s winning Best Lead Actress and who’s taking home Supporting? Our money is on Nicole Kidman’s wig for lead, as always.
