We finally have the first trailer for Darkest Hour, the likely awards contender directed by Joe Wright. The film is scheduled to be released November 22, which is when all the Oscar campaigns start.

Gary Oldman stars as Winston Churchill. Coming Soon explains the film in more detail:

“A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee 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.”

Kristin Scott Thomas costars in the film as Churchill’s spouse, Clementine, and the great Ben Mendelsohn stars as King George VI.

Like we mentioned above, Darkest Hour will hit theaters in November, and it’s probably going to be nominated for several awards. Check out the trailer below!
