WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

The story of how Dick Cheney (Bale), a bureaucratic Washington insider, gradually became the most powerful person in the world when he was selected as the Vice-President under George W. Bush (Rockwell)…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Adam McKay continues to prove he’s a filmmaking force of nature as he brings the irreverent and darkly comic tone from The Big Short to this tale about the most powerful Vice-President in history, as portrayed by an unrecognisable Christian Bale.
