Full Trailer for HBO’s GAME CHANGE

     January 31, 2012


The first full trailer for HBO’s Game Change has gone online. Directed by Jay Roach (Recount), the film follows the behind-the-scenes turmoil of the 2008 John McCain Presidential campaign. While we’ve previously seen tiny bits of Julianne Moore’s performance as Sarah Palin, this full trailer puts her front and center with stunning results. Moore has gone above and beyond here to embody the former Vice Presidential candidate, and nails all the nuances of Palin’s character. Roach and screenwriter Danny Strong previously teamed up for the stellar Recount, and it looks as though they’ve expertly executed yet another real-life political drama. While some of Palin’s behavior in the trailer might come across as staged, the film is based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s book of the same name which was the culmination of their unrivaled access to both Presidential campaigns.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Ed Harris, Woody Harrelson, Ron Livingston, Sarah Paulson, Peter MacNicol, Justin Gaston, Larry Sullivan, Jamey Sheridan, and Melissa Farman. Game Change premieres on HBO March 10th.

    That trailer had me laughing so hard.

    Is this a horror movie?

    Yeah, Sarah Palin… VP… you can’t make this up. The funny thing is how real it is. And reality is even funnier.

      Even funnier than electing someone into the White House who had ZERO experience of governing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, who had the most radical associations in Congress, and started his career in the home of an unrepentant domestic terrorist, that funny?

      Sarah Palin had more experience in governing than Obama had, and would’ve been ten times the President the current occupant ever will be, and that book has been widely debunked by members of both McCain’s and Hillary’s own campaign teams, so it’s not worth a dime in accuracy… as is this movie, it would appear!

        Well said!

        As for the film, it’s slander, nothing more..
        All I had to see was the presence of W. Harrelson in a film about Sarah Palin and I knew..

        My my, what an angry, delusional teabagger.

  • kirk

    New Gingrich for President? Next movie.

  • BeenBag

    Ed Harris as McCain? Yah right. Mickey Rooney would have been far more believable.
