Winston Churchill is having a moment. In DARKEST HOUR, Gary Oldman disappears into the role of the great statesman as he prepares his country for war. Earlier in the year Brian Cox took on the role in CHURCHILL, while on the small screen John Lithgow essays the part on Netflix's THE CROWN.

Darkest Hour List

A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
