As the US grapples with gun control, a new movie highlights the presumed cost of lobbying for a tighter weapons law.

Last seen battling the evil witch's army in The Hunstman: Winter's War, Jessica Chastain is now fighting against the powerful people in Capitol Hill as she plays a determined and powerful lobbyist fighting for stricter gun laws in the upcoming film Miss Sloane. As she navigates the intricate web of politics that come with the cause, she puts her career, and possibly even her life, at risk as her opponents resolve to stop her efforts. The trailer highlights the gravity of her battle as well as the impending dangers. Directed by John Madden, the film also stars Mark Strong, John Lithgow and Sam Waterston.

Miss Sloane is scheduled for release on December 9. Meanwhile, watch the trailer for the Will-Smith starred film, Collateral Beauty.
