New Trailer for 'The Program' Starring Ben Foster as Lance Armstrong
"Now we have learned to fly…" StudioCanal has debuted a new trailer for Stephen Frears' The Program, the fictionalized dramatic version of the Lance Armstrong story. Ben Foster stars as the cyclist, following his rise and fall in the sport. Foster admitted that he tried doping, but won't go into details, saying it was an experiment to understand the mindset of Lance. "Doping affects your mind. It doesn’t make you feel high. There are behaviours when you’ve got those chemicals running through your body that serve you on the bike but which, when you're not … I've only just recovered physically (via SlashFilm)." This brand new trailer is a follow-up to the original trailer from earlier this year, and it looks outstanding. Very intrigued to see this.
Here's the newest trailer for Stephen Frears' The Program, direct from StudioCanal UK's YouTube:
From Academy Award nominated director Stephen Frears (of The Queen, Philomena) and producers Working Title (The Theory Of Everything, Everest, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), comes the true story of the meteoric rise and fall of one of the most celebrated and controversial men in recent history, Lance Armstrong. Based on the award winning book "Seven Deadly Sins" by David Walsh, and featuring a stellar cast including Ben Foster, Chris O'Dowd, Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) and Jesse Plemons ("Breaking Bad"), this tense and suspenseful thriller looks at how one of the greatest deceptions in the modern era was uncovered while Armstrong convinced the world he was a hero, winning the Tour de France seven times. The film will be released in Europe later this fall, but still needs a US release. For more visit the official site.
