Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron Star In First 'Bombshell' Trailer

Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron Star In First 'Bombshell' Trailer

Three of our favourite actresses have teamed up for a blockbuster Hollywood drama and the results look explosive - literally.

The first teaser trailer for Bombshell dropped on Wednesday, with Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron on top form in a tense elevator scene.

The movie is based on the infamous Fox News harassment scandal, which saw former CEO Roger Ailes booted from the news giant following a raft of sexual and workplace harassment complaints.

It's the brainchild of director Jay Roach, who worked on comedy classics including Meet the Parents and Austin Powers, so we're expecting big things from his latest offering - and with the incredible all-female lineup, boasting eight Oscars between them, we're sure it won't disappoint.

The showbiz veterans are set to play Megyn Kelly (Theron) and Gretchen Carlson (Kidman) - two real-life women who took on the controversial media tycoon, ultimately leading to Ailes' public fall from grace. How's that for girl power?

Meanwhile, Wolf of Wall Street star Robbie will play fictional associate producer Kayla Pospisil.

Ailes, who died in May 2017 aged 77, was hired by Rupert Murdoch as the CEO of Fox News in 1996 but was later hit by a wave of high-profile sexual harassment allegations that led to his resignation.

Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson alleged she had been fired for rebuffing his advances, while Megyn Kelly also complained of 'unwanted sexual advances' from Ailes.

Ailes resigned just a year before his death, receiving a $40million (£33million) payout from Fox.

Announcing the release, producers said: "Bombshell is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time; Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it."

Bombshell is set to hit US cinemas on 20 December, although no word yet on its UK release date - watch this space...
