The first trailer of “Game Change” by HBO Films has been released, and the most-buzzed-about aspect of the short clip is our first look at Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin. The Jay Roach-directed film will focus on John McCain‘s presidential campaign in 2008, and especially Palin’s entry into the political scene.
Ed Harris plays McCain, while Woody Harrelson has signed on to portray adviser Steve Schmidt. The film is due out in March 2012, and is based on the book of the same name by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.
During an appearance on Fox News earlier this year, Palin brushed off questions about how “Game Change” might portray her. “I think I’ll just grit my teeth and bear whatever comes what may with that movie,” she said. Check out the trailer below. Do you think Julianne Moore nails Palin’s mannerisms?
