As we head into the second half of the year it looks like us history buffs are in for some great films to be released. Next week the Oscar mentioned film Dunkirk hits theaters. Dunkirk tells the story of the Allied Soldiers being surrounded by the German forces during World War II. Now get ready for the tremendous story of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice). After watching this trailer I believe Gary Oldman will be a frontrunner for the Academy Awards for Best Actor!
Darkest Hour is a thrilling and inspiring true story that begins on the eve of World War II. Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
