Charlize Theron – Special Screening of Liongate’s “Bombshell” in Westwood
Bombshell lives up to its title, and then some, and the explosive story of the scandal in which a group of women brought down Fox News founder and ruler Roger Ailes entered the Oscar race in a big way Sunday.
Stars Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, director Jay Roach and screenwriter Charles Randolph appeared at the first night screening of the Lionsgate’s holiday release at Pacific Design Center, which was followed by a conversation with the quintet moderated by Madelyn Hammond.
Earlier in the day the actors, along with co-star John Lithgow — who brilliantly plays Ailes — did a Q&A following a SAG screening in Westwood.
Reaction was strong for a movie that is funny, fierce, furious, powerful, timely and moving — qualities that ought to secure it a place in the Oscar conversation as the season ramps up.
