Now that Walter White’s lab coat is hung and dry, Emmy winner Bryan Cranston is putting on some 1940’s slacks for the official first trailer for Jay Roach’s “Trumbo.” Co-starring Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Diane Lane, Alan Tudyk, Michael Stuhlbarg and Helen Mirren, the drama will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.

The official synopsis reads: “The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. TRUMBO (directed by Jay Roach) tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.”

Watch the trailer above, thanks to Fandango.
