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.

Ronaldo rejects Real Madrid plan to sign Harry Kane
Cristiano has given the pass for the goal [of Isco] and I can tell you that he is very pleased with it. It is a poor return in 11 appearances in all competitions this season.

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.

For example, as a security measure, the fingerprint sensor on iPhones won't work if the user hasn't used it in the last 48 hours. He went on to say that no details about the phone would be revealed in case that information proved useful to other criminals.

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".

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.
