Watch the Trailer for the Lance Armstrong Documentary The Armstrong Lie

October 4, 2013


The trailer for Sony Pictures Classics' Lance Armstrong documentary, The Armstrong Lie, is now online and can be viewed in the player below, courtesy of iTunes Movie Trailers.

The film, directed by Alex Gibney and produced by Gibney, Frank Marshall and Matt Tolmach, tells the unfolding story of Armstrong's life and career over the last four years.

Lance Armstrong was considered one of the greatest sports figures of all time and put competitive cycling into the global spotlight, by beating cancer and winning the Tour de France seven times. That success earned him an immense fortune and worldwide fame. His was also one of the most influential and inspiring sports stories of recent memory and became a pop culture phenomenon, thanks to his Livestrong initiative. Beginning in 2009, Academy Award winning documentarian Alex Gibney followed Armstrong for four years chronicling his return to cycling after retirement, as he tried to win his eighth title. Unexpectedly, Gibney was also there in 2012 when Armstrong admitted to doping, following a federal criminal investigation, public accusations of doping by his ex-teammates, and an investigation by the US Anti-Doping Agency, that led USADA's CEO, Travis Tygart, to conclude that Armstrong's team had run "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen."

The Armstrong Lie opens in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on November 8.
