This movie about Megyn Kelly could be the final nail in Fox News’ coffin
Fox News is under direct attack.
The Left knows if they can ruin Fox News before the 2020 election that Donald Trump’s re-election chances will plummet.
And this movie about Megyn Kelly could be the final nail in Fox News’ coffin.
Lionsgate is set to release “Bombshell” in December.
The film stars Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson and Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly.
Bombshell tells the story of how Carlson and Kelly’s accusations of sexual harassment brought down then-Fox News President Roger Ailes.
Following closely on the heels of Showtime’s The Loudest Voice, Lionsgate released its first trailer for Bombshell, Hollywood’s latest take down of Fox News, focusing on the sexual harassment scandals that shook up the top-rated cable news station and led to the downfall of founder Roger Ailes.
Bombshell, whose coy trailer debuted on Wednesday, stars (an unrecognizable) Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly and Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson — two of the network’s star anchors who claimed that they were sexually harassed by Ailes (John Lithgow). Margot Robbie also stars as a fictional character.
Lionsgate will release the movie in December, a coveted spot for movies aiming to garner awards attention. The movie was directed by Jay Roach, who helmed HBO’s 2012 movie Game Change, an unflattering dramatization of Sarah Palin’s run for Vice President.
Bombshell comes with its own fraught backstory. The movie was initially set up at Megan Ellison’s Annapurna, which withdrew from the project shortly before filming began as the indie studio contended with financial difficulties stemming from a string of pricey flops.
The timing of Bombshell’s release is no accident.
Bombshell is part of a coordinated plot on the Left to bankrupt or destroy the reputation of Fox News before the 2020 election.
The Left wants to control the flow of information to the American people as well as the narrative surrounding the 2020 election.
And that cannot happen as long as Fox News is profitable.
