Katherine Graham or Kay was also the first woman to head a major US publication. The trailer shows, overheard in the newsroom were statements like: "People are concerned about having a woman in charge of the paper. That she doesn't have the resolve to make the tough choices. But she risked her entire career and the legacy of a trusted newspaper to let out the secrets of what has been seen as one of the biggest US scams.
The publishing of the Pentagon Papers, which were locked up for over three decades and four presidencies, could send The Washington Post bosses to prison but the risk was worth it, the trailer reveals. Towards the end of the trailer, The Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and Ms Graham came to the realisation: "If the government wins, The Washington Post will cease to exist."
The Post has zeroed in actors from both TV and Hollywood, including names like Bob Odenkirk, Carrie Coon and Zach Woods, each cast in appropriate roles.
The Post is scheduled to arrive in theatres on December 22 in the US and is slated to release in other places on January 12, 2018.
