Game Change Teaser Trailer. Jay Roach‘s Game Change (2011) TV Movie Teaser Trailer stars Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson, Sarah Paulson, and Ron Livingston. Game Change‘s plot synopsis: “based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin‘s bestselling chronicle of the 2008 presidential elections. Though the book covers both the Republican and Democrat sides of the race, Roach’s film narrows its focus to John McCain (Ed Harris), Sarah Palin (Julianne Moore), and their bid for office.”
I always thought Pailn’s nomination was a publicity, strategic decision. It seems I was correct.
When it comes to depicting boring discussions in conference rooms, HBO has it down to a science. The network adds suspenseful music, crystal-clear cinematography and tense dialogue and suddenly films like “Recount” and “Too Big to Fail” are thrilling narratives of what basically amounts to people sitting around talking.

 Though the actual presidential elections are still eleven months away, if you've been paying even casual attention to the news you'll know the Republican fight for the nomination is already speeding along. What better time, then, to look back and remember the high drama of the last time we all went through this as a nation? HBO has just released the first trailer for Jay Roach's Game Change, based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's bestselling chronicle of the 2008 presidential elections. Though the book covers both the Republican and Democrat sides of the race, Roach's film narrows its focus to John McCain (Ed Harris), Sarah Palin (Julianne Moore), and their bid for office. Woody Harrelson, Sarah Paulson, and Ron Livingston also star. Watch the trailer after the jump. [via First Showing ] Thanks to some early publicity stills , we've already known for months that Harris and Moore were capable of looking the parts they'd been cast in, »

Based on the tell-all book from New York Magazine's John Heilemann and Time’s Mark Halperin, HBO's Game Change now has a trailer. The story will focus on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's entry into John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign. The biggest reason to pay attention is to see Julianne Moore looking and sounding eerily like the once Republican vice-president candidate. Ed Harris makes a great McCain, and Woody Harrelson stars as his adviser Steve Schmidt. Palin has said that she will not be running for president in the upcoming election, but has also made mention that it wasn't too late for her to join the race (sounds confusing, as always). Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think.  ...

The book Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime was released in early 2010. Written by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, Game Change chronicled the 2008 presidential campaign. While the book focuses on the race as a whole, sections of it deal with the introduction of Sarah Palin as Republican candidate John McCain's running-mate.
HBO has chosen to make a TV movie out of Game Change, but the movie will heavily focus on the McCain-Palin campaign. Ed Harris plays Arizona Senator and candidate John McCain, while Woody Harrelson plays his adviser Steve Schmidt.
Oscar winner Julianne Moore steps into the role of Sarah Palin in the film and she proves that Tina Fey isn't the only woman who can play a convincing version of the former vice presidential candidate.

When HBO first announced their movie adaptation of John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's best seller Game Change about the 2008 election, many were puzzled. The movie would apparently only follow the John McCain/Sarah Palin side of the campaign which really only made up a third of the book. Everyone could imagine what the reason was. As fascinating as the Barack Obama vs. the Clintons side was, people just love them some Palin impressions. Well, now a teaser trailer has been released and that was clearly HBO's thinking too. The clip is edited to treat Julianne Moore's Palin basically like the shark in Jaws. »

As America heads to the polls next year to decide if Barack Obama deserves another shot, or if the looney Mitt Romney or Rick Perry or Newt Gingrich should lead the country, it's unlikely the race will ever match the showdown in 2008. Obama's meteroic rise was only one part of the story of his election that also saw Sarah Palin controversially enter the national stage. Well get ready because that story is now headed to the movies in "Game Change," which now has a very promising trailer. Directed by Jay Roach (who is also helming the much more comic "political" movie "Southern Rivals" with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis also coming next year), has reunited with his "Recount" writer Danny Strong for “Game Change,” which is based on the best-seller by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, and will track the 2008 election on both sides. This movie has pulled together a »
Even though HBO Films delivers their flicks on cable, most of their productions are much better than some of the stuff that hits the big screen. That's why we like covering projects set up at the cable network from time-to-time and that brings us to this first teaser trailer via THR for Game Change, a film chronicling the campaign run to the White House by Senator John McCain, played by Ed Harris, and Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, played by Julianne Moore. This likely won't be the most objective film coming from Jay Roach, the same director behind HBO's Recount, but it does look like it's going to be pretty damn good. Here's the first teaser trailer for Jay Roach's Game Change from HBO Films, via THR: Game Change is based on the book of the same name by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin which was adapted by Danny Strong »

On Thursday’s Morning Joe, Mark Halperin defended Rick Perry‘s presidential chances in the fallout over his embarrassingly epic gaffe. “There’s no Romney alternative right now. Perry’s probably the only one in this race who would have a good chance of beating Romney if he got him one-on-one. He still has money in the bank. I’m not saying he’s got a good chance anymore, but I don’t make it zero.” »

The biggest problem with yesterday's revelation that Texas Gov. Rick Perry has reopened the President's birth certificate as a campaign issue was the fact that there was no audio or video of Perry's interview with Parade Magazine. Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough remedied that situation, somewhat, this morning, when he drafted Willie Geist and Mark Halperin into a dramatic reenactment of the beleaguered former frontrunner's absurd interview, in which he expresses doubt about the President's birthplace. »

In the weird game of media messaging and political news narratives, sometimes asking a an untoward question of a candidate's political viability is just as damaging as the response. Such was the case this morning when Joe Scarborough raised the notion of President Obama stepping down after one term in office if his approval numbers continue to stay so low. While Mark Halperin quickly dismissed the notion, the fact that it was even being discussed on MSNBC's Morning Joe is not a positive sign for the White House reelection efforts. »

Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs' appearance on Tuesday's Morning Joe evoked a strong sense of déjà vu. Time's Mark Halperin asked Gibbs about a familiar line of attack on President Obama, noting that Gop hopeful Rick Perry (R-tx) responded to a reporter who asked him if the President loved America by saying, "You need to ask him." Gibbs called Perry's "passion" for America a "remarkable turnaround" from his not-so-distant talk of secession from the United States. »

Julianne Moore will be playing Sarah Palin in HBO's adaptation of Game Change, based on the Mark Halperin and John Heilemann book that details the 2008 Us presidential election. Deadline is reporting that Moore could be extending her time at HBO as it appears that a new Todd Haynes project could land Moore as the lead.
The project in question is Dope; a novel written by Sara Gran that tells the story of Josephine "Joe" Flannigan, a heroin addict who decides to get clean and turns to private eye work to get by. Set in 1950s New York the streets are full of dope (as the title of the novel suggests) making this decision to work in a business surrounded by drugs all the more precarious.

MSNBC may be seen as Fox News for liberals, but its contributors have recently made a habit of saying not-so-nice things about President Barack Obama. Pat Buchanan, a Republican presidential hopeful turned MSNBC pundit, raised some eyebrows when he referred to Obama as 'your boy' when he talked with Al Sharpton Tuesday night. Buchanan took to MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to explain his comments Wednesday morning, insisting that he was using boxing terminology. "Morning Joe" happens to be the show on which Mark Halperin called Obama a "dick" for how he behaved in a »

Just as one fire involving a MSNBC contributor and their description of President Obama is finally put out, might a new one be starting? Today on Morning Joe, Mark Halperin returned to the show after his suspension for calling Obama a "dick." Yet moments after Halperin completed his analysis of the debt deal, it was Pat Buchanan's turn to address his fresh controversy. »

Halperin was addressing Obama’s press briefing with host Joe Scarborough on June 30 when he asked, “Are we on the seven-second delay?” Assuming that he could speak freely, he then said, “I thought he was a d–k.” He immediately released an apology, though MSNBC still suspended him indefinitely.
Halperin is an editor-at-large and senior political analyst for Time.
In other announcements from the news cabler, Rachel Maddow signed a new multi-year deal. “She’s going »

The Oscar-winner portrays the one-time Vice President candidate in upcoming film Game Change, based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's book which chronicles John McCain's failed 2008 presidential run.
And Moore admits getting Palin's personality just right has been extremely tough - especially when trying to perfect her high-pitched voice.
She says, "It was hard, really, really hard... I worked really hard. It's hard to play someone who is very present in people's minds, who's on television, very idiosyncratic, I did my best. We'll see, I hope we pulled it off.
"(It took) an incredible amount of practice (to get her accent right). I had to listen to it over and over again. My son was embarrassed because (Palin's speeches were) all that was on my iPod. He said, 'Where's your music?' I erased all my music."
But there is one person who won't be impressed by Moore's hard work - Palin is refusing to support the film. »
