The Front Runner trailer: Hugh Jackman is caught in a political scandal
Columbia Pictures has released the first trailer for the upcoming political drama The Front Runner starring Hugh Jackman as Gary Hart.
They also released a new movie poster that hilariously shows the Gary Hart campaign truck lunging itself off a cliff after being chased by reporters. Make sure you check out both the trailer and the poster below and let us know what you thin
Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman stars as the charismatic politician Gary Hart in the film that 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 Front Runner also stars Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring), J.K. Simmons (Juno), Alfred Molina (FX’s The Feud), Sara Paxton (Twin Peaks), and Kaitlyn Dever.
Jason Reitman (Tully) directs the political scandal drama, which will world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival and screen at TIFF.
The Front Runner will debut in theaters November 7, just in time for the awards qualifying season.
