Watch: A Teaser Trailer for HBO's McCain/Palin Film 'Game Change'
Even though HBO Films delivers their flicks on cable, most of their productions are much better than some of the stuff that hits the big screen. That's why we like covering projects set up at the cable network from time-to-time and that brings us to this first teaser trailer via THR for Game Change, a film chronicling the campaign run to the White House by Senator John McCain, played by Ed Harris, and Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, played by Julianne Moore. This likely won't be the most objective film coming from Jay Roach, the same director behind HBO's Recount, but it does look like it's going to be pretty damn good.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Jay Roach's Game Change from HBO Films, via THR:
Game Change is based on the book of the same name by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin which was adapted by Danny Strong and directed by Jay Roach, the same duo behind HBO's film Recount about the 2000 election between Al Gore and George W. Bush. The film follows Senator John McCain's (Ed Harris) campaign for the presidency in 2008 as he brings aboard a female vice presidential candidate in the form of Sarah Palin (Julianne Moore). Woody Harrelson also stars as McCain's campaign manager along with Sarah Paulson, Ron Livingston and more. HBO will debut the film on their network sometime next March. Good?
