Churchill – Trailer 1 – Brian Cox

Churchill Churchill is summarised as “a ticking-clock thriller following Winston Churchill in the 24 hours before D-Day.”

Portrayed by Brian Cox, and set in June 1944 (obviously), Allied Forces stand on the brink: a massive army is secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to re-take Nazi-occupied Europe. The late Prime Minister stands in their way.

Behind the iconic figure and rousing speeches: a man who has faced political ridicule, military failure and a speech impediment. An impulsive, sometimes bullying personality – fearful, obsessive and hurting. Fearful of repeating, on his disastrous command, the mass slaughter of 1915, when hundreds of thousands of young men were cut down on the beaches of Gallipoli. Obsessed with fulfilling historical greatness: his destiny.

Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler’s Blitzkrieg. Should the D-Day landings fail, he is terrified he’ll be remembered as an architect of carnage…

Churchill is released in the UK on June 16th.
