At one point, it looked like ‘The Post‘ wouldn’t be released until next year, but Steven Spielberg and his crew worked hard to have it ready just in time for the upcoming awards season.
The film, which was directed by Spielberg, follows the country’s first female newspaper publisher of The Washington Post, Kay Graham (Meryl Streep) and its editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) as they work together to publish the Pentagon Papers.
Now is the perfect time to release a movie like this, especially after the Disney fiasco with the LA Times. We all need to fight to make sure the press remains free and honest.
In addition to Streep and Hanks, you’ll also find Alison Brie, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross inside this movie, which is scheduled to be released December 22, 2017.
