WATCH: The trailer for Brexit, a new movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch is coming under some criticism

This is sure to divide opinion.

It might feel like Brexit has been in the news consistently for about two years now.

The reason it might feel like that is probably because it's true.

And in case you thought Hollywood was one place where you were safe from the world of politics and policies, think again.

The trailer for Brexit has been released, and we imagine it's going to attract a hell of a lot of attention.

Have a look for yourself here:

Well that looks interesting...

If you're wondering what the hell a movie about Brexit is going to be about, considering Brexit is still very much in the developing stages, we wondered that too.

But it looks like it's strictly going to follow the campaign to leave the EU, rather than the aftermath.

As HBO themselves put it: "The result of the Brexit referendum in summer 2016 caused a political earthquake that laid waste to the normally stable British establishment and sent political tremors around the world. Cumberbatch portrays Dominic Cummings, who spearheaded the Vote Leave campaign.

"Rory Kinnear plays Craig Oliver, Prime Minister David Cameron’s director of communications and head of the Remain campaign. This provocative feature-length drama goes behind the scenes, revealing the personalities, strategies and feuds of the Leave and Remain campaigns.

"The tactics employed by Vote Leave during the data-driven campaign swayed a historically silent voting bloc that would ultimately decide the outcome of the referendum, as well as affecting future elections around the world."

Critics of the movie feel like it is making a hero out of Cumberbatch's character, despite the controversies that surround the campaigning around Brexit.

Breixt will premiere on HBO on 19 January of 2019.
