David Fincher’s Mank Trailer


Although they came close with Roma, The Irishman and Marriage Story, this time around Netflix may have their most legitimate shot at a Best Picture win with David Fincher’s Mank (the lack of studio competition this year doesn’t hurt either). Of course, Fincher himself has previously been nominated for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Social Network but never won either. Mank stars Gary Oldman as screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, battling alcoholism and Orson Welles as he tries to finish the script for Citizen Kane in the late ’30s. The movie is shot in black-and-white and borrows the visual style of Hollywood films of the era. With a supporting cast that includes Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, Arliss Howard, Tom Pelphrey, Sam Troughton, Ferdinand Kingsley, Tuppence Middleton, Tom Burke and Charles Dance, the movie hits select theatres in November before arriving on Netflix on Dec. 4th. Check out the first trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    This definitely is on my list. Wish I could see it on a big screen, though.

  • Matt the Kiwi

    Looks cool but if I was wishing for films I’d want to see Fincher make, this probably wouldn’t be up there.

  • Ben Bueno

    Finally something to look forward to.

    I’ve actually seen a lot of lukewarm reaction to the trailer but I can’t wait for it. I believe Fincher will finally get his Oscar. We know how much the industry loves itself and its own history.

    Looks good, but this guy really needs to make a legit horror movie. I was really excited for World War Z 2, even though I wasn’t too crazy about the first one.
