Steven Spielberg’s next film has debuted its first trailer. The Post stars Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, based on the true story of the reporting of the Pentagon Papers, when the USA’s major newspapers took a brave stand for freedom of speech.
In June 1971, The Washington Post’s Katherine Graham (Streep) was still finding her footing as the country’s first female newspaper publisher with the paper’s volatile editor, Ben Bradlee (Hanks) trying to enhance the stature of the struggling, local paper. The two form an unlikely team, coming together to support The New York Times and fight the Nixon Administration’s unprecedented attempt to restrict the first amendment.
The Post hits cinemas 19th January 2018. Check out the trailer above and let us know your thoughts below.
