Mank isn’t the only film that Gary Oldman leads during this extended awards season. He also stars in Nicholas Jarecki’s Crisis, which marks the director’s first film in nearly a decade, following 2012’s Arbitrage. Also featuring Armie Hammer, Evangeline Lilly, Greg Kinnear, Michelle Rodriguez, Luke Evans Lily-Rose Depp, Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi, Duke Nicholson, Veronica Ferres, and Martin Donovan, the first trailer has now landed ahead of a release later next month.
The film follows a number of storylines, as the synopsis notes: A drug trafficker arranges a multi-cartel Fentanyl smuggling operation. An architect recovering from an Oxycodone addiction tracks down the truth behind her son’s disappearance. A university professor battles unexpected revelations about his employer, a pharmaceutical company bringing a new “non-addictive” painkiller to market. Set against the backdrop of the opioid epidemic, their stories collide.
