His long and illustrious career has taken #GaryOldman's appearance to a number of bizarre places over the years — from the maniacally deranged vampire in Bram Stoker's Dracula, to the dreadlocked pimp in True Romance, to shuffling around on his knees as a faux-dwarf in Tiptoes. Yet despite radical transformations being a thing of ease for the Hollywood veteran, little could've prepared us for his upcoming role as Winston #Churchill in #DarkestHour.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you the artist formerly known as Gary Oldman:

Yep. BONKERS, right? That, my friends, is Gary Oldman and a shit ton of #prosthetics, suited and booted and ready to take on Nazi Germany in terrifyingly accurate style. Can anyone else hear the #Oscar bells a'tinklin' already?

Joining Oldman in Darkest Hours is Ben Mendelson (King George IV), John Hurt (Neville Chamberlain), Lily James (Churchill's PA) and Kristin Scott Thomas (Churchill's wife). The official plot is as follows:

Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

The movie will open in theaters on November 24, 2017 — but for those of you aching for all things British, head over to #Netflix now, for the reign of #TheCrown is just about to begin.

Is your mind blown by Oldman's latest transformation?
