Churchill in his Darkest Hour

The first image of Winston Churchill, from the upcoming ( even if it’s due in late 2017 ) , has arrived. The main shock is who they have playing the wartime hero.

That’s actually Gary Oldman playing the great man!

No, I’m not kidding!  I was as shocked as you are reading this!

Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill 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 sceptical 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.
