Debut Trailer for Rob Reiner’s Political Drama LBJ with Woody Harrelson as 36th POTUS

LBJ is a political drama film directed by Rob Reiner (When Harry Met Sally... , A Few Good Men, Misery, The Bucket List) and written by Joey Hartstone. Premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, the film stars Woody Harrelson, Richard Jenkins, Bill Pullman, Kim Allen, Michael Stahl-David, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jeffrey Donovan, Doug McKeon, and Michael Mosley.

The story centers around the political upheaval that Vice President Johnson (Harrelson) faced when he was thrust into the presidency at the hands of an assassin’s bullet in November 1963. With political battles on both sides of the aisle, Johnson works to heal a nation and secure his presidency by passing Kennedy’s historic Civil Rights Act. His early years are also chronicled.
