New On Blu: Trumbo

New this week from Universal is Trumbo, the story of blacklisted screenwriter and two-time Academy Award winner Dalton Trumbo, written by John McNamara based on a book by Bruce Cook, directed by Jat Roach, and starring Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, and Helen Mirren.

"In 1947, Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) was Hollywood's top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo (directed by Jay Roach) recounts how Dalton used words and wit to win two Academy Awards and expose the absurdity and injustice of the blacklist, which entangled everyone from gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) to John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger."

Trumbo is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and Amazon Video.
