Walt Disney Pictures has released a new poster for Secretariat, based on “the impossible true story” of the horse that in 1973 became the first Triple Crown winner in twenty-five years. Diane Lane (Nights in Rodanthe) and John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich) star in the inspirational tale, written by Mike Rich (Radio) and directed by Randall Wallace (We Were Soldiers). Check out the poster in high resolution after the jump.
The official synopsis:
Based on the impossible true story, SECRETARIAT chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner. Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (DIANE LANE) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (JOHN MALKOVICH)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.
Cast: Diane Lane, John Malkovich, Dylan Walsh, James Cromwell, Kevin Connolly, Nelsan Ellis, Dylan Baker, Margo Martindale, Otto Thorwarth, Fred Thompson, AJ Michalka and Scott Glenn.
