Long Shot (2019 Movie) New Trailer - Seth Rogen, Charlize Theron.
U.S. Secretary of State Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) learns from President Chambers (Bob Odenkirk), a former television actor, that he does not plan on running for a second term as he is trying to break into the movie industry. Seeing an opportunity, she convinces him to endorse her as a potential presidential candidate.
Meanwhile, New York City journalist Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) learns that the newspaper he works for has been bought by Parker Wembley (Andy Serkis), a wealthy media mogul whose ethics directly oppose Fred's. Furious, he promptly quits but cannot find another job. Depressed, he turns to his more successful best friend Lance (O'Shea Jackson Jr.), who takes him to a charity fundraising event where Boyz II Men happened to be playing. Coincidentally, Charlotte is also in attendance. She and Fred recognize each other, as she was his babysitter and secret crush when they were younger. While they catch up, Wembley interrupts them to plan a meeting with Charlotte, leading Fred to condemn Wembley's actions and beliefs very loudly before leaving, falling down a set of stairs and injuring himself in the process.
Upon reading some of Fred's columns, Charlotte decides to hire him to write her speeches over the protests of her Chief of Staff, Maggie (June Diane Raphael). Despite voicing skepticism of her ethics, Fred takes the job. At a world leaders summit, Charlotte is forced to revise a speech involving a planned environmental revision to appease some of her constituents. When Fred objects and calls her out on abandoning her morals, she changes her mind and the speech is a success.
