THEJOURNAL.IE SHOWED YOU a teaser a few weeks back but the full trailer of HBO’s latest film offering is out now.

Game Change follows the 2008 presidential election campaign of John McCain as he tries to create a “dynamic moment”.

As he unleashes little-known Alaskan governor Sarah Palin on America, McCain (played by Ed Harris) realises that “this might not be the campaign he wanted to run”.

We see Palin from her pitbull-with-lipstick moment through to mini-breakdowns and a realisation that she is carrying the campaign on her back.

Moore nails Palin so well (as Harris does McCain) it might be hard to remember that this is a dramatisation of 2008 events and not what really happened.

The film is based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s book Game Change which was released on this side of the Atlantic with the title Race of a Lifetime.

It will be aired for the first time on 10 March.
