David Fincher’s upcoming feature “Manks” doesn’t just tell the story of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz attempting to finish the script for “Citizen Kane” in 1930s Hollywood, it lives and breathes as a film straight out of the 1930s itself. Producer Eric Roth said as much in June when he teased the film, saying, “It’s an incredible piece. He did a black-and-white ’30s movie. It looks like a ’30s movie and feels like one.” The 1930s essence of “Mank” is on full display in the official trailer, embedded below.

 Netflix ‘s brief synopsis for “Mank” reads: “1930s Hollywood is re-evaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane for ‘Orson Welles.’”Fincher’s return to moviemaking after 2014’s “Gone Girl” is headlined by Gary Oldman  Gary Oldman recent Oscar winner for “Darkest Hour. “Mank” marks a rare opportunity for Oldman to appear natural on screen and not have to act through any extreme makeup or prosthetics. In an interview last month, Oldman revealed  that part of the project terrified him. Courtsey Netflix Movie
