An exclusive new poster and the first images have been released for Open Road Film’s awaited historical drama, Parkland. This film is based off on the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and how it affected the staff of Dallas’ Parkland Hospital.

Parkland has a very diverse and talented cast that includes actors Paul Giamatti, Zac Efron, Jacki Weaver, Billy Bob Thorton, Jeremy Strong, and Marcia Gay Harden. Efron is playing Doctor Jim Carrico, who was the first physician to tend to President Kennedy after he was brought into the emergency room. Giamatti will be portraying Abraham Zapruder, a clothing manufacturer who ended up recording the events of the assassination with his personal video camera. Thorton will be playing Secret Service Agent Forrest Sorrels, who was responsible for connecting with Zapruder and collecting his footage for development and evidence purposes. Finally, Strong is portraying Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who was accused with killing President Kennedy.

These new images from the film give us our first glimpse at the actors as their characters and the stylized world of this historical drama. If you look carefully, you realize that the American flag on the poster is at half-mast, which effectively sets the tone for the story and the film itself.
