The Program

"No longer confined to Earth, now we have learned to fly…" StudioCanal UK has debuted a trailer for The Program, the Lance Armstrong film from Stephen Frears. Originally it was going to be a biopic, but after all the fallout it seems to have shifted to a story of "how he pulled that off", coming from the angle of one of the other racers and the journalist who was trying to find out the truth - David Walsh, as played by Chris O'Dowd. Actor Ben Foster plays Lance Armstrong, and he looks solid, everything I was expecting and more. I'm really looking forward to this, I want to see what sides of this story they play with, and this trailer is a big tease. The cast includes Lee Pace, Jesse Plemons and Guillaume Canet. Give this a look.

Here's the first official trailer for Stephen Frears' The Program, direct from StudioCanal's YouTube:

The Program Poster

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.

  • shiboleth
    At least, Ben Foster looks good in this ...
  • It's funny because he was cheat. It always get censored on here but Armstrong was a super C * N T. What a horrible bastard.

      After reading on him and the events of those years, I don't think there's any word that could better describe him. As vulgar as it may seem.

    Great choice to choose Ben foster but Lance Armstrong is with Bill Clinton,colin Powell the biggest liar America has ever seen! It's a disgrace of man to use your sickness to make money, and than use dope to win the tour the France 7x... No morals at all...

      Although I agree, the man is a cheater and that sucks but lets be real. It's not like he's alone. I remember reading an article where they went down the list and it wasn't until the guy that came in 17th place that they found someone not doping. All of them do it and it makes sense, the body has to be on something to do what these guys do. Not saying thats wrong or right but people act like he's this solo doper lol.

        Ofcourse all of cycling is infested with dopehead for ages, but Lance is the biggest. He let the people believe you can overcome cancer by working hard and win the tour the France 7x times. Millions he made with his organization and always deniying he used extras and everybody who tell something would feel his wrath by kicking him out him his team. He was the don Corleone of cycling! Realy he was the devil with a yellow shirt :)

    That's a fantastic poster. The attention to detail is great.
  • kuzosake
    I didn't see his name in this article, but I'm pretty sure I saw Dustin Hoffman in there too.
  • Foster looks like he's captured the unbalanced, self loving, drug using Armstrong well. Almost too well. Very creepy.
  • Huck PS
    What? He used performance-enhancing drugs???
