Sarah Palin Lambasted in New 'Game Change' Trailer: VIDEO


Although John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's book Game Change focused on all the players in the 2008 presidential election, this new trailer for the HBO adaptation makes it clear the film focuses primarily on the McCain/Palin portion of the story.

Says Harrelson, who plays McCain adviser Steve Schmidt: "She's a great actress. Why don't we just give her some lines?"

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

Game Change premieres on March 10 at 9 pm.

  1. That trailer accomplished something that, up until now, I thought would be impossible... it made me feel a tinge of sympathy for Sarah Palin. Now that's some filmmaking!

  2. I will never forgive McCain and his minions for thrusting this woman upon us.

  4. While this seems to be a damning portrayal of Palin, it might accomplish the opposite; it will thrust her back into the spotlight.
    I was hoping that she might fade away.

    She's not a politician, she's an entertainer.

  5. I don't know if I want to relive this.

  6. She is a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown, even now without any major role.

    What she will accomplish?

    In her rage and rabid onslaughts, the destruction of the Republican party.

  9. Sad that the delicate and gorgeous features of Ms. Moore had to debase themselves by forming that rictus grimace of Sarah Palin in a film.

  10. poor sarah...

    i look at that and i makes me think i would come off as a nympho neurotic pathological liar drunk junkie under a media microscope.

    though i think most people who know me would consider me the biggest prude in the US... as much as we talk about her i'm sure we all know some wonderful conservatives who would come off just as dumb and evil...

  11. I don’t know if HBO can Sell Sarah better than she sells herself. Just when we thought she her starlight was fading, this opportunistic movie may push Palin back into the spotlight depending on how she is portrayed. How does America’s Top MILF do it? She’s cut-throat when it comes to her money and you can see just how scandalous she’ll get for the cash with The Ecstasy of Sarah Palin at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-of-sarah-palin_15.html

  13. Kudos to Julianne for making Sarah sympathetic.

  14. Yea, thanks a lot McCain, for opening the Pandora box.

  15. Moore as usual gives her all for a role.

    Posted by: jaragon | Jan 31, 2012 5:36:49 PM

  16. Underwhelmed.

  17. This looks dead on arrival. Who cares now?

  18. "She's a great actress. Why don't we just give her some lines?"

    That's exactly Palin. No logical thoughts of her own. She repeats talking points and adds "Ya Betcha" at the end.

    Thank God for the 2008 Election Results.

  19. Gigi,

    I not only forgive McCain for giving us Palin, I thank him!

    His pick for VP showed America his serious lack of judgment, intelligence and insight. This devastating move on his part handed the presidency to Obama.

    And, it was incredibly entertaining to watch!
