A legend tells the legend of a legend in the first trailer for David Fincher‘s Herman J. Mankiewicz biopic Mank.

Netflix dropped the awards and is looking forward to drama’s full-length preview, teasing Fincher’s wild, black-and-white take on the screenwriter’s relationship with Orson Welles during the creation of the iconic 1941 movie Citizen Kane.

The trailer stars Gary Oldman as the titular scribe who, in the middle struggles with alcoholism and a generally acerbic attitude, clashes with Welles (Tom Burke) while writing the screenplay that would eventually create the foundation for one of the best movies of all time. The script which the men fought over credit for despite their shared Oscar victory for Best Original Screenplay.

Fincher’s late father, Jack Fincher, had written the Mank screenplay before his death in 2003, with the story showcasing the writer’s difficult ride through Hollywood in the 1930s, from mingling with socialites, power-hungry industry players, and William Randolph Hearst (Game of Thrones’ Charles Dance), the man who would inspire Citizen Kane’s central character.

Amanda Seyfried also stars in the film as actress Marion Davies, Mank’s longtime lover, and Lily Collins as his stenographer Rita Alexander.

Mank is Fincher’s very first directorial feature since 2014’s Gone Girl. This will open in select theaters throughout November before its December 4 streaming debut on Netflix, ahead of a likely Oscar push. Watch the first full-length trailer above.
