HBO has revealed the first trailer for Benedict Cumberbatch’s latest movie Brexit. The movie will tell the whole story of the 2016 Brexit referendum which “caused a political earthquake that laid waste to the normally stable British establishment and sent political tremors around the world.”
Cumberbatch takes on the role of Dominic Cummings, “who spearheaded the Vote Leave campaign.” He will be joined by Rory Kinnear, who plays Craig Oliver, “Prime Minister David Cameron’s director of communications and head of the Remain campaign.”
Cumberbatch transformed a lot to play this man and it seems like he will give yet another brilliant performance.
This provocative feature-length drama goes behind the scenes, revealing the personalities, strategies and feuds of the Leave and Remain campaigns. The tactics employed by Vote Leave during the data-driven campaign swayed a historically silent voting bloc that would ultimately decide the outcome of the referendum, as well as affecting future elections around the world.
Brexit was directed by Toby Haynes and it will air on HBO on Saturday, January 19, 2019, at 9 pm.
