Nominated for three Academy Awards, Bombshell unravels the incendiary story of the women who took on the exploitative atmosphere at Fox News and the man who presided over it all – Roger Ailes. Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) is dealing with the explosive fallout over the 2016 Republican Debate when her former colleague Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) announces a lawsuit against Ailes (John Lithgow) alleging sexual harassment. Prompting other women to come forward with their own stories, the controversy ignites a vitriolic internal struggle, all while new hire Kayla Pospisil (Margot Robbie) tries to navigate the minefield of a toxic workplace.
