The assassination of JFK will forever be one of the most haunting events caught on tape. The famous Zapruder tape, the focus of so much of the historical analysis of the event, is part of the new Tom Hanks-produced movie Parkland. Weaving in the plot behind the man who accidentally caught the assassination on tape, Abraham Zapruder, along with the frantic events at Parkland hospital that morning, the film looks to be a compelling drama that features a fine cast.

With Paul Giamatti starring as Zapruder, Parkland features the acting talent of Jacki Weaver, Billy Bob Thornton, Jackie Earle Haley and Marcia Gay Harden. Unfortunately Zac Efron is in it too. However, the trailer shows the film’s look at the events proceeding the assassination and a look at some of the less familiar characters of the narrative.

Parkland is directed by Peter Landesman and is set for release this September.
