If there's ever been a movie cast to get excited about, this is it!
The teaser trailer for the upcoming film Bombshell due to hit cinemas in January 2020 has been released and of the three powerhouse actresses taking the leading roles, two of them are Aussie national treasures!
Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie are teaming up with Charlize Theron in the upcoming drama that will tell the story of Fox News boss Roger Ailes and how he was brought down by accusations of sexual harassment by his colleagues.
While Oscar nominee Margot will play a fictionalised producer, Nicole, who won an Oscar for her role in The Hours will portray television journalist Gretchen Carlson whilst fellow Academy Award winner Charlize Theron is set to star as former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly.

The all-star cast will also feature John Lithgow as Roger Ailes with Kate McKinnon, Allison Janney, Connie Britton, Rob Delaney and Malcolm McDowell in supporting roles.
All three leading actresses have shared the teaser trailer on their social media accounts and it's safe to say everyone is excited for the flick. You can watch it in the player above to hype yourself up!
And while we're excited to see homegrown talent on the big screen, it's Charlize Theron's transformation that has fans astounded.
"THIS is why there's an Academy Award for Makeup and Hairstyling. Incredible," one excited person tweeted.
"I refuse to believe this is Charlize Theron. This is Megyn Kelly... right?" remarked another.
The three leading stars have all addressed the #MeToo movement and spoken publicly to support women in Hollywood as well as other male-dominated industries.
Speaking about her relationship with her first husband Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman said: "I got married very young, but it definitely wasn't power for me – it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of it at 32, 33, it's almost like I had to grow up."
Despite Cruise's protection, the star also admitted to experiencing her own "#MeToo moments."
"But do I want to expose them in an article? No. Do they come out in my work? Absolutely," she added. "I'm open and raw. I want to have my well of experience and emotion tapped into ― used, and I'm not just talking about sexual harassment. I'm talking about loss, death, the full array of life. But it has to be by the right people so it's not abused again."

Margot Robbie has similarly spoken about the #MeToo movement, telling Porter magazine: "I didn't know what constituted sexual harassment until the #MeToo movement. I'm in my late 20s, I'm educated, I'm worldly, I've travelled, I have my own business, and I didn't know. That's insane.
"I struggle to find many women who haven't experienced sexual harassment on some level. So yes, lots of times. And to varying degrees of severity throughout my life."
