Working Title Films have released four new UK posters for their upcoming Winston Churchill movie Darkest Hour, which is set to arrive in cinemas in January 2018. Gary Oldman leads the cast of the film, which also features the work of Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James and Ben Mendelsohn. The four new promos are character posters for the movie, featuring the likes of Oldman, Scott Thomas, James and co-star Stephen Dillane. You can check out the new Darkest Hour posters below.
During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds.
Directed by Joe Wright, Darkest Hour is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
Oldman is very much being tipped for Oscar glory for this movie, and rightly so. We’ve seen Darkest Hour (at the recent Toronto International Film Festival), and agree that he will absolutely take some beating this awards season.
Check out the new Darkest Hour posters. The film will arrive in U.S. cinemas on November 22nd, with UK audiences set to get it on January 12th. You can watch the latest trailer here.
