While the one-minute and 25-second clip gives fans only a glimpse of the film, it shows the three women boarding an elevator for an uncomfortable and tense ride.

Ailes resigned from Fox News in 2016 after facing allegations of sexual harassment. One of the accusations came from Carlson, who filed a lawsuit against Ailes that year. The lawsuit was later settled for a reported $20 million.

The former chairman and CEO, who denied the accusations, then passed away in 2017 at the age of 77.

The movie hits theaters this December.

Watch the video to see the teaser.
