Watch a New Trailer for JFK Drama <i>Parkland</i>

The story of the assassination of John F. Kennedy has been documented extensively since 1963. This year, with Tom Hanks producing, a new take on the tragedy will hit theaters that focuses on the assassination’s aftermath.

Parkland, named after the Memorial Hospital where Kennedy was rushed to, is adapted and directed by Peter Landesman from Vincent Bugliosi’s book Four Days In November. The film will focus mainly on the supporting players at the hospital including doctors, nurses, priests and Secret Service members.

Check out the trailer above, which shows appearances from Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Giamatti and Zac Efron. The film is set for a world premiere at the Venice Film Festival next week.
