‘Parkland’ Trailer: A JFK Assassination Movie Without JFK

By: Robert Kessler / August 21, 2013

This November marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas. Just in time comes Parkland, the JFK-less JFK assassination movie. Rather than focus on the President himself, this movie is about those closest to the assassination including the doctors and nurses at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Lee Harvey Oswald, JFK’s security detail and Abraham Zapruder, shooter of the famous Zapruder film.

Parkland stars Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden, Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, Jacki Weaver and Colin Hanks. It opens September 20.
