Steven Spielberg's Latest Film Has Journalists Fighting the Government

Steven Spielberg's Latest Film Has Journalists Fighting the Government

The first trailer for 20th Century Fox's The Post arrived on Tuesday, Nov. 7, and the timing couldn't have been ideal! The movie stars Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.

It's impossible not to get excited about the fact that this is a Spielberg film with a tremendous cast that also happens to be taking on timely issues.

Portia de Rossi makes sexual harassment claims against Steven Seagal
Horrified, the actress says she ran out and called her agent, who she says was apparently unsurprised by de Rossi's story. So far, de Rossi has not said anything further than that, and it's unclear exactly when the incident took place.

At a time when journalists have helped reveal various goings-on (the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, the Paradise Papers, the Panama Papers etc.), The Post seems to arrive at an opportune moment. It's based on the true story of the Washington Post's attempts to publish the top-secret Pentagon Papers, and has the most wonderful cast. The film takes place in 1971, as the paper went to war with the White House over the rights to publish top-secret military documents about the Vietnam War that were first leaked to The New York Times by whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg.

Tom Hanks (as Ben Bradlee) and Meryl Streep (as Kay Graham) star in Twentieth Century Fox's THE POST.

Jaguar Land Rover Q2 pre-tax profit jumps 38% to £385 million
Since then the pound has fallen sharply against the Indian currency, down from over 100 rupees to 85.26 rupees. However, on a standalone basis, Tata Motors still remained in the red but with lower losses.

The Post will hit theaters in limited release on December 22, 2017, with a wide release on January 12, 2018. The trailer shows the pair working together closely on the affair, while also touching on their doubts and hesitations. This strategy ensures eligibility for the 90th edition of the Oscars.

"If we don't hold them accountable, who will?" the Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) asks his publisher, Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep), to which she replies, "We can't hold them accountable if we don't have a paper".

Roger Goodell Contract Talks Amicable Despite Possible Jerry Jones Lawsuit
How are the owners pushing against Goodell? That is obviously a huge accusation for Jerry Jones to make. Jones has also been critical of Goodell's handling of protests during the national anthem.

The cast is rounded out by Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Sarah Paulson, Bradley Whitford, Carrie Coon, Alison Brie, Zach Woods, and more ridiculously talented actors.
