Republicans won’t be going to see this movie because they feel this is yet another smear tactic against the network they watch and respect.
Yet the “bombshell” here is seeing actress Charlize Theron portray television personality Megyn Kelly.
“Bombshell” — the movie that Hollywood had to make in order to try to take down Fox News — released its trailer on Friday.
Twitter social users responded with stunning posts about Theron.
They were shocked the likeness was so real.
The movie from Lionsgate is scheduled to tackle the alleged sexual misconduct allegations against the late Fox News executive Roger Ailes, which led to his resignation in July 2016.
The trailer features Theron, Nicole Kidman, and Margot Robbie, who are shown during a tense elevator ride.
Theron is on the far left in the trailer below:
Twitter was abuzz over Theron’s likeness to Kelly.
“Ok but Charlize Theron looks almost exactly like Megyn Kelly in #Bombshell,” one user wrote.
“Surprised so many people are astonished by Charlize Theron’s ability to perfectly mimic Megyn Kelly’s tense-pursed facial expression in that #Bombshell clip,” wrote another.
“Charlize looks more like Megyn Kelly than Megyn Kelly does,” another user wrote.

I’ll wait and see with #BOMBSHELL obviously, but I’m also reticent to watch a movie that will treat the women involved as heroines for toppling Ailes. They all still willing worked at a white supremacist mongering network and had no problem with that aspect of their jobs

Aight I’m gonna say it. If you were one of the many who cheered the downfall of people like Weinstein as part of the Me Too movement (rightfully so), but you see #BombshellMovie and get caught up in the politics of the victims, you’re part of the problem.
