Netflix has released the full Mank trailer for acclaimed filmmaker David Fincher's upcoming black-and-white biopic drama, featuring Oscar victor Gary Oldman's portrayal of Herman Mankiewicz as he tries to finish writing Citizen Kane while facing personal problems involving his family and career. Producer Eric Roth said this in June when he teased the film and said, "It's an fantastic piece".

Fincher's return to filmmaking after "Gone Girl" in 2014 will be directed by Gary Oldman, the youngest Oscar victor for "Darkest Hour". In the video, screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Oldman) fights for them to approve the script for Citizen Kane.


The trailer starts by showcasing how Mank has been enjoying his life to fullest, without realising he has a task to complete. "Mank" is a rare opportunity for Oldman to look natural on the screen and not have to act through extreme makeup or prostheses. "I used to be pondering, 'I don't find out about that.' I don't look something like Mank". Then, as soon as we began, I believed, 'Yeah, Dave was proper.' No tips. The film also stars Tom Burke as director Orson Welles, and Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister on Game of Thrones) as publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, on whom the character of Charles Foster Kane was based, as well as Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, Arliss Howard and more.

The movie has already gotten at the very least one main rave courtesy of Aaron Sorkin, Fincher's "Social Community" screenwriter and a fellow Oscar contender this 12 months for Netflix's "The Trial of the Chicago 7". Sorkin recently said that "Mank" is "so damn good", adding, "David did a great job doing this movie". The movie will get a limited theatrical release in November and it will stream on Netflix on December 4.


Fincher is directing from a screenplay by his late father, Jack Fincher. Check out the official trailer for the Fincher-directed drama below.
