It's impossible not to get excited about the fact that this is a Spielberg film with a tremendous cast that also happens to be taking on timely issues. To deal with the cast, both Streep and Hanks look to be delivering first rate work, and with the supporting cast sporting some of the most talented performers in the industry, and as the first collaboration between Meryll Streep and Steven Spielberg, it's a safe bet The Post is going to garner its fair share of acting contenders. On a deeper level, there couldn't be a better time for a thoughtful film examinging the value of a free, respected, and honest press.
Check out The Post trailer below. The film opens December 22nd and also stars Alison Brie, Sarah Paulson, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Jesse Plemons, Michael Stuhlberg, Zach Woods, and Bradley Whitford.
