HBO’s adaptation of Robert Schenkkan’s Tony Award-winning play All The Way finally has its first trailer. The film features Breaking Bad alumnus Bryan Cranston reprising his role as Lyndon Baines Johnson (for which Cranston took home a Tony for Best Actor in a Play in 2014) in a drama focused on the politician’s rise to the U.S. Presidency in the wake of JFK’s assassination. LBJ seeks to enact the late Kennedy’s 1964 Civil Rights Act into law, but first he must rally members of Congress and the Civil Rights Movement — including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. — to his cause.
The film sees Cranston reconnecting with Jay Roach, who directed the politically-inclined Trumbo, which earned both Roach and Cranston Oscar nods. All The Way, executively produced by none other than Steven Spielberg, premieres on HBO May 21. Check the trailer out above.
