You may watch below the first official trailer of Churchill, the upcoming biography drama thriller movie directed by Jonathan Teplitzky and starring Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery, James Purefoy, Julian Wadham, Richard Durden, and Ella Purnell:
Behind the war for freedom lies the battle for control.
Based on the untold story.
Britain’s greatest moment inspired by the greatest Briton.
“June 1944. Allied Forces stand on the brink: a million soldiers are secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Fearful of repeating, on his disastrous command, the mass slaughter of 1915, when over 500,000 soldiers were killed on the beaches of Gallipoli. Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler’s Blitzkrieg. Should the D-Day landings fail, he is terrified he’ll be remembered as the architect of carnage. Only the unflinching support of Churchill’s brilliant, unflappable wife Clementine can halt the Prime Minister’s physical and mental collapse.”
What do you think of Brian Cox’ performance as Winston Churchill? He totally nails the role, doesn’t he?
