Sebastian Stan's upcoming Donald Trump movie The Apprentice has confirmed a UK release for this year.

The film, which will see the Marvel actor play the former US president, charts the younger Trump's rise to power as a businessman.

Ahead of its premiere at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival, it has been announced that The Apprentice will get a UK and Irish cinema release in 2024 – though a specific date is yet to be confirmed.

Alongside Stan, the movie will star Succession's Jeremy Strong as Trump's notorious mentor Roy Cohn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3's Maria Bakalova as Trump's first wife Ivana, and Tenet's Martin Donovan as Trump's father Fred.

"The Apprentice is a dive into the underbelly of the American empire," the synopsis reads. "It charts a young Donald Trump’s ascent to power through a Faustian deal with the influential right-wing lawyer and political fixer Roy Cohn."

The movie is described as "an exploration of power and ambition set in a world of corruption and deceit" and "a mentor-protegé story that charts 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," a previous synopsis adds.

Holy Spider's Ali Abbasi has directed The Apprentice from a script by Gabriel Sherman, who wrote the bestselling book The Loudest Voice in the Room about former Fox News president Roger Ailes.

The movie will compete for Cannes' prestigious Palme d'Or award alongside the likes of Barry Keoghan's Bird, Selena Gomez's Emilia Perez, and Emma Stone's Kinds of Kindness.

The Apprentice will be released in UK cinemas in 2024.
