Sony Pictures has released a new International trailer and poster for Jason Reitman’s The Front Runner starring Hugh Jackman.
Hugh Jackman stars as Gary Hart who was a front-runner in 1988 until accusations of an extramarital affair hobbled his campaign. He famously challenged the media to follow him around and see how boring his life was, only for tabloid photographs to emerge of him having an affair.
Based on Matt Bai’s 2014 novel All the Truth Is Out, the film stars Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons, Kaitlyn Dever, Sara Paxton, Mamoudou Athie, Molly Ephraim, Josh Brener, and Mike Judge alongside Jackman.

The Front Runner Official Synopsis
The film follows the rise and fall of Senator Hart, who captured the imagination of young voters and was considered the overwhelming front-runner for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination when his campaign was sidelined by the story of an extramarital relationship with Donna Rice. As tabloid journalism and political journalism merged for the first time, Senator Hart was forced to drop out of the race – events that left a profound and lasting impact on American politics and the world stage.
