Steven Spielberg has made a lot of movies over the course of his prolific career, but he hasn’t yet made an entry into the storied journalism movie genre. That changes next month, when The Post hits theaters, and with a cast that includes Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Allison Brie, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, and BOTH Mr. Show‘s Bob AND David.
A trailer for The Post premiered online today, and it promises a smart, fact-based drama about Katharine Graham, the first woman ever to serve as publisher of a major American newspaper, and the publication of the dynamite “Pentagon Papers” that revealed deception on the part of four different White House administrations regarding the Vietnam war.

The Post, with the potential to be enjoyed by millions of dads and their adult children this holiday season, arrives to select theaters on December 22nd, with a wide release slated for the following month.
