The very first trailer for the upcoming movie Spotlight has just been released. The movie tells the real life story of the “Spotlight” team at The Boston Globe, the oldest operating newspaper investigative unit in America. The film mainly focuses on how the team came together. Michael Rezendes ( Mark Ruffalo) and Walter “Robby” Robinson ( Michael Keaton), two reporters for The Boston Globe found themselves up against a powerful hierarchy who were covering up six alleged incidents of juvenile sexual assault in catholic church in Boston. This stunning Scandal hits home for the Men who were both Catholic-raised and they convince their editor, Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber), to initiate a long-term journalistic investigation known as “spotlight.” However, as they dig deeper the scandal becomes more than any of them had ever imagined.
Along with Ruffalo, Keaton and Schreiber, Rachel McAdams, John Slattery, Brian d’Arcy James, Stanely Tucci and Billy Crudup also make up the cast. Josh Singer and Tom McCarthy wrote the script and the movie is also directed by Tom McCarthy.
