HBO is looking for a game changer, really. Yesterday they released an exclusive sneak peek of their feature film, ‘Game Change’. Starring Julianne Moore as the former Alaska governor turned VP hopeful Sarah Palin. The 52-second teaser about the 2008 presidential election shows brief glimpses of Moore, in addition to Ed Harris, who was tapped to play John McCain, and Woody Harrelson takes on the role of McCain’s aide, Steve Schmidt. The movie starts with McCain and Schmidt talking about how they need to pick a vice presidential candidate who would rev up their campaign. “None of these middle aged white guys are game changers,” say Schmidt. McCain responds with, “So find me a woman.” The Clip ends with Moore as Palin, in her signature frameless glasses as she appears from behind a podium and declares “I will be honored to accept your nomination for Vice President of the United States.” The flick is based on the best-selling book with the same name, written by John Heilemann of New York magazine and Mark Halperin of Time Magazine. Earlier this year Palin weighed in on how she will be portrayed in the movie, “I think I’ll just grit my teeth and bear whatever comes what may with that movie. These gals who pretend like they’re me, perhaps they want to spring for one of my kid’s braces or something as they capitalize.” Suffice it to say, she doesn’t seem to happy about the movie that will debut in March on HBO. Tune in to see the real story behind the election. To learn more about adding HBO Movie Channel to your list of satellite TV programming services visit us at Connect Your Home or call (888)566-3979.
