Compelling Trailer for JFK Assassination Ensemble Drama 'Parkland'
"We had him! And we could've stopped him!" Exclusive has finally debuted the full theatrical trailer for Peter Landesman's Parkland, the story of the John F. Kennedy assassination in Dallas, Texas as told from the point of view of the Parkland Medical Hospital where he was taken immediately after being shot. The ensemble drama features a cast that includes Billy Bob Thornton as head of Dallas' Secret Service office, Zac Efron as a doctor at Parkland, Marcia Gay Harden as a nurse, Paul Giamatti as the cameraman Abraham Zapruder, Jeremy Strong as shooter Lee Harvey Oswald, Ron Livingston and many more. It's a great trailer that builds as it goes on, and boasts a strong cast. This footage looks better than I was hoping.
Here's the full theatrical trailer for Peter Landesman's Parkland, originally from Yahoo:
The film tells the "dramatic true story of the chaotic events that occurred at Parkland Hospital in Dallas on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22nd, 1963." First time filmmaker Peter Landesman is stepping behind the camera and directing his own script, which is based on Vincent Bugliosi's book Reclaiming History. The unraveling and intertwining narrative stays away from prominent characters such as the Kennedys and instead explores the besieged hospital staff -- with Zac Efron playing the rookie doctor on duty and Marcia Gay Harden as the head nurse in the trauma room. Exclusive Releasing will open Parkland in limited theaters on September 20th after it premieres at TIFF earlier that month. Interested?
