On the heels of last year’s string of success, the famed Texan Matthew McConaughey is ready to impress the critics again in 2013. We already shared some images, but today we have the first trailer from his upcoming film Dallas Buyers Club.
You’ll have to deal with Entertainment Tonight voiceover, but if you’ ve been anticipating this movie for quite some time, it’s worth it all.
The true life story about a man stricken with AIDS is rather a bit lighter film than a heavy drama. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallee (C.R.A.Z.Y.) a mix of both drama and comedy also starring Jared Leto as a transsexual, along with Jennifer Garner, Steve Zahn, Dallas Roberts, Griffin Dunne, Denis O’Hare, and Bradford Cox.
Dallas Buyers Club opens on November 1st, 2013 which is sooner than the previous date of December 6th.
In this fact-based drama, Matthew McConaughey portrays real-life Texas electrician Ron Woodroof, an ordinary man who found himself in a life-or-death battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies. In 1985, Ron was blindsided with an HIV diagnosis and given 30 days to live. With medications still restricted in the US and the country still divided over how to combat the virus, Ron procured non-toxic alternative treatments from all over the world through both legal and illegal means. To avoid government sanctions against selling non-approved medicines and supplements, Ron established a “buyers club” for fellow HIV-positive people, giving them access to his supplies.
Check out the trailer.
