Gary Oldman is completely transformed into Britain’s most famous politician in the first photo from DARKEST HOUR. Directed by Joe Wright, the film is currently in production.
Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (BAFTA Award winner Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
The film also stars Lily James as Elizabeth Nel, Kristen Scott Thomas as Clemtine Churchill, John Hurt as Neville Chamberlain, and Ben Mendelsohn as King George VI.
