Starring Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, John Lithgow and Margot Robbie, Bombshell is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time, Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it.
The claims of sexual harassment brought against Fox News chief Roger Ailes were a key moment in one of the defining stories of our time - the #MeToo movement - and Bombshell is the first major drama to bring this story to life.
With a screenplay from the co-writer of The Big Short, Bombshell is a lively, sharp and bitingly funny docudrama that chronicles how one of Fox News’ star anchors, Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron in another extraordinary, transformative performance), and “Fox & Friends” host Gretchen Carlson (Kidman) came to reveal the deeply ingrained culture of sexual harassment that the lecherous right-wing media mogul Ailes (Lithgow) used to run his network.
