Is this role going to get Charlize Theron her next Oscar? Watch!

Cape Town - What really went on inside the walls of Fox News?

The new trailer for Bombshell exposes the 2016 scandal in which Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes was accused of sexual harassment and misconduct from several women journalists and anchors.

While the first teaser just gave a glimpse into it, the new 2-minute clip takes us into the battle.

It starts with a new young producer Kayla Pospisil (Margot Robbie) just starting out in the company who soon learns about the toxic environment. In a hair-raising scene Roger Ailes (John Lithgow) tells her that to achieve her career goals, she needs to prove her loyalty.

Meanwhile, anchor Gretchen (Nicole Kidman) gets ready to take legal action against the news corporation, and Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) becomes embroiled in a brutal war of words against republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
