No movie in 2019 will have a better cast than Bombshell. Fuck Endgame. That’s just a bunch of cool people that we all like personally but no one has ever raved about Robert Downey and Chris Evan’s acting ability.
These three stars have three things in common…
They are all always the best looking human in every room they walk into.
They are all Academy Award winners that can out act anyone they’re in a scene with.
And they all are the loves of my life and I’d take a life for them if they asked me to. Even if they didn’t ask me to. Full John Hinckley. Just point me a Reagan.
This movie has a couple of things going against it.
Like, Megyn Kelly shouldn’t have a movie about her life where she’s portrayed by Charlize fucking Theron. That’s gross. Maybe she won’t even realize it considering she’s sitting in a dark room somewhere asking the walls ‘but what’s the big deal with blackface?‘.
Second, this movie is directed by Jay Roach, the same guy who made Austin Powers movies and the Meet The Parents movies. Those aren’t necessarily bad movies but Bombshell is listed as a drama and has three of the best dramatic actors on the planet.
Please do right by my girls, Jay.
Speaking of Roger Ailes, he’s being portrayed by John Lithgow in this movie. Word. He better not have more screen time than Nicole Kidman.
Bombshell could be two hours of that awkward elevator scene and I’d walk out with tears streaming down my face as a draft an email to the Academy begging them to hand these women all of the awards.
At the end of the trailer they list Charlize, Kidman and Margot. In that order.
I can’t tell if that’s totally appropriate considering Charlize is the best actor and has a long career of just HITS.
Or if this is disrespectful to 52 year Nicole Kidman, the veteran who deserves top billing in everything she does.
Or if it’s disrespectful to Margot Robbie who is the biggest actress in the game and there isn’t a close second place. That Wolf of Wallstreet, I, Tonya, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood run is better than anything Jennifer Lawrence has ever even thought about.
All I know is that I’ll be there opening weekend watching Bombshell smiling ear to ear as if Fox News isn’t currently destroying the country in real time.
