Donald Trump tries to block the US release of the biographical film ‘The Apprentice’

donald trump is trying to block the release of The newbieand now the film’s producers are fighting back.

“The film is a fair and balanced portrait of the former president,” the biopic’s producers said in a statement to ET. “We want everyone to see it and then decide.”

As first reported Variety, the former president’s legal team sent a cease and desist to the filmmakers behind the biopic warning them not to pursue a distribution deal. The film has generated a lot of buzz for a couple of reasons, the first of which is that the Ali Abbasi-directed film features Trump raping his first wife, the late Ivana Trump, who died in July 2022 as a result of suffering “Blunt impact injuries to the torso..” The former couple, who married in 1977 and divorced in 1992, shared three children: Donald Jr., 46, Ivanka, 42, and Eric, 40.

According CBS NewsIvana used the word “rape” to describe a sexual encounter between her and Trump when she made a statement during her divorce from Trump in 1990. In the years that followed, Ivana walked back the rape allegation, telling CBS News in 2015 that she made the accusation “at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald.”

In second place, The newbie generated a lot of buzz Monday during its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, where the film, starring Sebastian Stan, Maria Bakalova and jeremy strong — received almost a 10 minute ovation.

According DeadlineThe crowd was rowdy for up to 11 minutes, though other outlets report that the applause went on for nearly eight minutes, with Abbasi bowing and even supposedly FaceTiming Strong, who is in New York for his Broadway play, An enemy of the people.

In April, fans got their first look at Stan’s radical transformation on Donald Trump of the 1980s.

The newbie is an exploration of power and ambition set in a world of corruption and deceit. It’s a mentor-protégé story that traces the origins of an American dynasty. Filled with larger than life characters, it reveals the moral and human cost of a culture defined by winners and losers,” reads a statement about the film when Stan’s casting was announced..

The former president has no shortage of legal battles at the moment. He is currently facing 91 criminal charges in four different rooms. In New York he is accused of falsifying business records. In Washington, DC and Georgia, he is accused of allegedly conspiring to overturn the 2020 election.

Trump also faces a federal trial in Florida, after a grand jury returned 40 felony counts against Trump related to his alleged mishandling of classified documents after his presidency. Also named in the case are Trump’s personal assistant and valet, Walt Nauta, and Mar-a-Lago’s head of maintenance, Carlos De Oliveira. The judge in that case has stayed the case indefinitely.

Trump is charged separately with each of the 32 documents under the Espionage Act, while the other eight charges include making false statements and engaging in a conspiracy to obstruct justice. The three men have pleaded not guilty to all charges against them. The case marks the first federal indictment of a former American president.
