The trailer has arrived for Hugh Jackman’s political thriller The Front Runner.
Directed by Jason Reitman, the film also stars Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons and Alfred Molina. Get a look at the tense trailer below:
Jackman stars as the charismatic politician Gary Hart. The film follows the rise and fall of Senator Hart, who captured the imagination of young voters and was considered the overwhelming front runner for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination when his campaign was sidelined by the story of an extramarital relationship with Donna Rice.
As tabloid journalism and political journalism merged for the first time, Senator Hart was forced to drop out of the race – events that left a profound and lasting impact on American politics and the world stage.
The film features a screenplay by Matt Bai, Jason Reitman and Jay Carson. It is produced by Helen Estabrook, Aaron L. Gilbert and Jason Reitman.
The Front Runner will be released in UK cinemas on 11th January 2019.
