Bombshell (2019 Movie) New Trailer - Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie.
Roger Ailes (John Lithgow) heads Fox News, the real-life cable News & television network. The film focuses on newscasters Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron), Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman), and a fictional character, named Kayla Pospisil (Margot Robbie). Also Kayla's savvy co-worker Jess Carr (Kate McKinnon) was "all made up", according to Randolph. Randolph went on to admit that this was done to add a line of predation of a younger generation of women for not standing up against such actions of some men in power.
Kelly is one of the network's most popular newscasters and is to co-moderate the 2016 Republican debate. On the day of the debate, she becomes sick, but still questions Donald Trump on comments he has made about women and if his temperament is appropriate for a president. In retaliation, Trump tweets insults about her and makes comments on television about her having blood coming from her eyes and body, later that was called "anger-menstruating" by others in the media.
Carlson is removed as co-anchor of the popular Fox and Friends and is transferred to a less popular show. Inundated by sexist comments on and off the air, she meets with lawyers, Nancy Smith (Robin Weigert) and Neil Mullin. Carlson's contract prevents her from suing Fox, but she can sue Ailes himself. This would put her career at risk, but testimony from other women will help. The fictional character Pospisil works for Carlson, but soon accepts a job on The O'Reilly Factor. Carlson is upset and says women should stick together, but Pospisil says she is loyal to the network.
Meanwhile, one paparazzi stalks Kelly's family outside her home, prompting Kelly's husband, Douglas, to kick the intruder out. Fox hires security for Kelly. Kelly complains about the harassment to Ailes, who tells her to ignore it. Kelly explains through narration that all Ailes cares about is appearance, which is why female news anchors are only allowed to wear dresses that expose their legs.
