Churchill Trailer Starring Brian Cox

We’ve got a pair of competing Winston Churchill biopics coming this year and it looks like the first one to hit theatres will be simply titled Churchill. Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man), it stars Brian Cox as the iconic British prime minister in the difficult days leading up to D-day. Miranda Richardson, John Slattery and James Purefoy also co-star. Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour is coming in November and looks to be a slightly higher profile affair with Gary Oldman in the lead role. In the meantime, Churchill hits theatres on June 2nd in North America and June 16th in the U.K.; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
