Zac Efron looks to be in way over his head in the first trailer released for John F. Kennedy assassination drama Parkland, which will be released just in time for the 50th anniversary of the President’s death.
The Peter Landesman film focuses on the lesser known individuals who all played a part that history-making day, including Efron’s inexperienced young doctor, the only one on duty at the time JFK was rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital.
Here’s the film’s synopsis…
November 22nd, 1963 was a day that changed the world forever when young American President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. We follow in almost real time a handful of individuals forced to make split-second decisions after this incomprehensible event that would change their lives and forever alter our worlds landscape: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital, the chief of the Dallas Secret Service, the unwitting cameraman who captured what has become the most watched and examined film in history, the FBI Agents who had gunman Lee Harvey Oswald within their grasp and Vice President Lyndon Johnson who had to take control of a country in a moments notice. Thrust into a scenario of unprecedented drama with unimaginable consequences, these key characters respond with shock, outrage, determination and courage.
Parkland debuts at the Venice and Toronto film festivals next month and will be released on October 4th.
Zac tweeted the news himself.
