Giving a first look at HBO Films' 2008 election telepic, this short promo also features Ed Harris as John McCain and Woody Harrelson as his campaign advisor, Steve Schmidt.
A first look into HBO Films' telepic "Game Change" has just arrived. Coming out in the form of a teaser trailer, the promo is less than a minute long, but manages to give a peek at Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin, Ed Harris as McCain, and Woody Harrelson as his campaign advisor, Steve Schmidt.
The teaser previews the moment when McCain and Schmidt get together and decide that they need to pick someone as a game changer for their campaign. It ends with a snippet of Palin taking the podium and declaring, "I will be honored to accept your nomination for vice president of the United States."
Discussing about her research on the way campaigns are conducted to prepare for the telepic, Moore told ABC News back in October, "So much is about how do you get on the air, how do you get the most media attention, how do you make the most noise. When in fact, what we're all looking for is leadership, we don't want noise. We want people who are going to take care of us."
"Game Change" comes from the hands of director Jay Roach and screenwriter Danny Strong, the filmmakers behind HBO's 2008 TV movie which centered on the 2000 election, "Recount". It is based on the best-selling book of the same name by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.
To premiere sometime in March 2012, the telepic centers around John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, from his selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election. It is supported by a cast ensemble that include Sarah Paulson, Peter MacNicol, Larry Sullivan, Melissa Farman and Jamey Sheridan.
