Netflix’s Mank trailer recreates the Golden Age of Hollywood”

Gary Oldman plays Herman J. Mankiewicz, the screenwriter who went through the wringer to pen Orson Welles' 1941 film Citizen Kane, which is now considered by critics and movie circles to be among the best films ever made. The cast also includes Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, Ferdinand Kingsley, Tom Pelphrey and Arliss Howard. "Mank" will be getting a theatrical release before it arrives on streaming at the start of December.

Mank will be released in theatres and on Netflix December 4, 2020.

Check out the debut trailer for Mank embedded in this post... Oscar victor Gary Oldman, who channeled Winston Churchill in 2017's critically acclaimed Darkest Hour, leads the cast as Academy Award-winning screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz.

Mank is Fincher's first feature directing effort since 2014's Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.

Mank is directed by David Fincher from a script written by Jack Fincher. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, the director's longtime composers and Oscar winners for "The Social Network", are providing the film's original score. As you can tell from the teaser, Mank is shot in black and white to reflect the 1930s film aesthetic.

There's some hype behind this release with Academy Award victor Aaron Sorkin recently raving about the film.

All that controversy is ground for a gripping drama, and if anybody can turn it all into a good two-odd hours, it is David Fincher. An extended version of the teaser is playing exclusively on Reddit for a limited time (at the 30 minute mark).
