The Red Scare was one of the 1950’s biggest crossovers between politics and Hollywood. And Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) is showcasing this in his new film Trumbo, about screenwriter Dalton Trumbo who is blacklisted for being a Communist and his career and reputation ruined. At least until he fights back against the U.S. government.

Another Hollywood film about Hollywood, this one looks to be about something a bit more serious than Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks a couple of years ago, although it is tinged with some humor. The film also stars Helen Mirren, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., David James Elliott, Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Diane Lane, and Alan Tudyk.

You can watch the trailer and see the poster below! Directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Parents, the Austin Powers films) with a screenplay by John McNamara, Trumbo will be in theaters November 6, 2015.
