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?

    I'd rather watch a movie about how Obama changed the white house as we know it. Whoops. Never mind.

    Julianne, your voice isn't screechy enough and you're not hateful enough to play Sarah Palin. Now old jealous quittypants is all upset that she didn't get a Christmas card from the Obamas and mad that the 1st dog Bo isn't wearing a flag pin on his collar.

    shouldnt this have been released like in 09?
  • Brandon
    Do not care. Sarah Palin needs to run again though, solely for lolz. Although Bachmann and Perry seem to be entertaining us all nicely. Candidates for 2012 are a joke.

    That played like a horror trailer.

    ethan = troll or terrible taste in movies? this looks godawful.
    • real talk
      he's not a troll, clearly this is an upcoming film and he is a contributor to this website. it probably looks godawful because the republican party has looked godawful for the past 15 years, that's why this and the 2008 W. film looked like SNL impersonations- the absurdity of that political party, the GOP, demands this treatment through their inane solutions to public problems.

        Well a lot of people believe that Sarah Palin was the one who said "I can see Russia from my house" and not Tina Fey, so maybe we should be able to tell the difference between parody and real life. Sure that line was based off of Palin saying 'You can see parts of Russia from Alaska." but thats hardly a dumb statement....its fact. 
        • real talk
          Hey "Al", if you want to stick up for Sarah Palin and her GOP cronies, then more power to you.  My above comment was mainly pointing out that the sensationalist American politicians such as Sarah Palin have been met with parody because they beg for it through their own sensationalism. Please, god, please, don't attack Tina Fey.

            I would attack Tina fey.,,, with endless hugs
          • Al
            I don't see how anything I said was an attack on Tina Fey. She obviously has the right to parody. I was merely pointing out that the 'smoking gun' seminal reason line that people use to sum up Sarah Palin is something she never even said. I was attacking the general public for not realizing the difference. Go ahead and insert a joke about how this points to more negative attributes of Palin than to the public, but its their mistake. Its stupid.

    Zero interest.

    This would've worked a lot better had the Farrelly Brothers directed it.

    I actually think the real life version of the story is funny enough. I felt a bit sorry for McCain's oven chips, having Sarah Palin as a sidekick was like having landmines for shoes.

    Is this a funny-or-die spoof?
