With outstanding filmmaker pedigree, Darkest Hour is directed by BAFTA Award® winner Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice), written by Academy Award® nominee Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything) and stars Academy Award® nominee Gary Oldman (Harry Potter, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) in his 2018 Golden Globe® Award winning role.

Academy Award® nominee Gary Oldman plays Churchill in the lauded film. As Hitler’s forces storm across the European landscape and close in on the United Kingdom, Winston Churchill (Oldman) is elected the new Prime Minister. With his party questioning his every move, and King George VI (Mendelsohn) skeptical of his new political leader, it is up to Churchill to lead his nation and protect them from the most dangerous threat ever seen. Also starring Academy Award® nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (Tomb Raider, The English Patient, Only God Forgives) and Lily James (Baby Driver, Cinderella), Darkest Hour is a powerful, inspirational drama.
