It's been nearly five years since the Senate's report on the CIA's use of enhanced interrogation methods made a permanent mark on America's human rights record. Amazon Studios today released the trailer for The Report, a film that depicts the struggle of Daniel J. Jones, a staffer for Senator Dianne Feinstein, to reveal the truth about years of detainee abuse under CIA's detention and interrogation program.

The film was written and directed by Scott Z. Burns, who served as the screenwriter for Contagion and The Bourne Ultimatum. It has a star-studded cast of prestige television regulars. Adam Driver (The Last Jedi, BlacKkKlansman) will star as Jones, with Annette Bening (American Beauty, Captain Marvel) as Feinstein. Michael C. Hall (Justice League, Dexter) makes an appearance, as does Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Black Mirror) who plays White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough. Maura Tierney (Beautiful Boy) plays Bernadette, a CIA official.

The Report earned rave reviews at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and Amazon's decision to release it both in theatres and on streaming is a signal that it hopes it will generate some Oscar noms. Amazon Studios will release the film in theaters on November 15th, followed by Prime Video on November 29th. You can watch the trailer below.
