Bombshell is about the behind the scene drama at Fox News, and particularly the downfall of the channel’s founder and longtime boss Roger Ailes (played in the film by John Lithgow). The film features several very famous actors playing very famous former members of the Fox News team. The first image from the film above lets you see three of the leads: That’s Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson, Margot Robbie as Kayla Pospisil, and Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly.

Yes that is Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly. We swear! She is literally unrecognizable (there’s definitely some kind of prosthetic makeup involved). However they did it, it’s truly a transformation. Here’s the trailer for the film:
