A new trailer has been released for the film LBJ, which follows Lyndon Johnson through his political journey, looking at how his life changed utterly when being rushed into the presidency following the assassination of John F Kennedy.

Harrelson seems perfect in the role, bringing the intensity needed for the part as well as showing a few humorous moments too. Harrelson currently stars in the highly acclaimed War for the Planet of the Apes and is also due to star in the Han Solo spin-off movie.

Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rich Sommer, Richard Jenkins, Bill Pullman, and Jeffrey Donovan also star in LBJ, with Donovan playing the role of JFK.

Rob Reiner, the legend behind such classics as The is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride and When Harry met Sally, directs.
