HBO just released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming film “Game Change,” starring Julianne Moore as Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. (We’re not sure she’s better than Tina Fey, but really, who could be?)
The film follows John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign from the beginning to his decision to pick a game changer like Sarah Palin to their ultimate defeat to Barack Obama. If you can deal with the accent for the entire film, you’ll also get to see Ed Harris as Sen. John McCain and Woody Harrelson as McCain adviser Steve Schmidt.
The trailer shows McCain and Schmidt deciding that, with an African-American man like Barack Obama in the running, they needed to pick someone that might be a game changer for their campaign. Whatever side of the coin you’re on, this should prove to be an interesting story. “Game Change” will premiere in March on HBO.
