Gary Oldman’s writing, drinking, gambling, and philandering in David Fincher’s Mank trailer

David Fincher’s first film since 2016’s Gone Girl, Mank is, per its spelling, apparently not about Karl Pilkington. The historical and likewise stylized picture sees Gary Oldman as screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, following him through his “suicidal drinking, compulsive gambling, and platonic affairs” as he rushes to finish the Citizen Kane script. He has to get it done before sled nostalgia goes out of style!

We’ll find out whether he manages to provide a script that will become AFI’s favorite movie ever when Mank hits Netflix December 4.
