When your name is Steven Spielberg, you can get anybody to star in your flicks. Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks take the lead in The Post, an American politics drama.

The Post revolves around a partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks). They’re playing catch-up with rival newspaper The New York Times to expose a massive government cover-up that has spanned several decades. The truth is out there…

Also starring a cavalcade of TV’s best actors – Carrie Coon (The Leftovers), Alison Brie (Mad Men), Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story), Jesse Plemons (Fargo), Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), David Cross (Arrested Development), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Zach Woods (Silicon Valley), Matthew Rhys (The Americans) – The Post is due to land in Australian cinemas on January 11, 2018.
