The trailer has been released for the eagerly-anticipated new movie Parkland.
Written and directed by Peter Landesman, Parkland recounts the events that occurred on the day that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. It gives a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most scrutinised moments in history.
Zac Efron, Jackie Earle Haley, Colin Hanks, Marcia Gay Harden, Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Giamatti and Jacki Weaver lead the all-star cast.
The synopsis for the movie is:
Parkland weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital; Dallas’ chief of the Secret Service; an unwitting cameraman who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; the FBI agents who nearly had the gunman within their grasp; the brother of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, left to deal with his shattered family; and JFK’s security team, witnesses to both the President’s death and Vice President Lyndon Johnson’s rise to power over a nation whose innocence was forever altered.
The world premiere of Parkland will take place at the Venice Film Festival on 1st September. It is due for release in the UK on 8th November.
