With a star-studded cast including Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman, Bombshell focuses on a sexual harassment scandal that rocked media empire Fox News, coming to a head in 2016.

Bombshell is the first major film adaptation to focus on the scandal and is based on a biography about the late disgraced Fox News CEO and Chairman Roger Ailes called The Loudest Voice in the Room.

"Bombshell" is a scalding and powerful movie about what selling, in America, has become. The film is about selling sex, selling a candidate, selling yourself, selling the truth - Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
