“It’s about making sure you surprise them – and they don’t surprise you.” Those words from Jessica Chastain (aka Miss Sloane) in a new trailer dropped by EuropaCorp for political thriller Miss Sloane.

Chastain stars as  a brilliant but ruthless lobbyist who is notorious for her unparalleled talent and her desire to win at all costs, even when it puts her own career at risk. The thriller pulls back the curtain on how Capitol Hill games are played and won as Sloane faces off against the most influential powers in D.C. (i.e. the gun lobby).

John Madden directs from a screenplay by Jonny Perera.  Mark Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Stulbarg, Alison Pill, Jake Lacy, Sam Waterston and John Lithgow also star. Ben Browning, Kris Thykier and Ariel Zeitoun are the producers.

Miss Sloane hits theaters on December 9. Check out the teaser trailer above.
