Ahead of its US premiere on HBO next month, a new trailer has arrived online for director Jay Roach’s upcoming drama All the Way, which stars Bryan Cranston as President Lyndon B. Johnson alongside Anthony Mackie as Martin Luther King Jr. and Melissa Leo as First Lady Bird Johnson. Check it out below after the official synopsis…
Bryan Cranston reprises his Tony-winning role in ALL THE WAY, a riveting behind-the-scenes look at President Lyndon B. Johnson’s tumultuous first year in office after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Staking his presidency on what would be an historic, unprecedented Civil Rights Act, Johnson finds himself caught between the moral imperative of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the expectations of the southern Democratic Party leaders who brought Johnson to power.
All the Way is set to premiere on HBO on May 21st and features a cast that also includes Bradley Whitford, Stephen Root, Marque Richardson, Aisha Hinds, Todd Weeks, Mo McRae, Spencer Garrett and Frank Langella.
