First trailer for ‘Parkland’ reveals chaos surrounding JFK assassination

The first trailer for Parkland arrived. Writer and director Peter Landesman revisits the chaotic events surrounding Parkland Hospital in Dallas on the day that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. 

Parkland Hospital is where Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Jack Ruby all died.

Arriving on the  50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination, the film produced by Tom Hanks, seems to be focused on capturing the chaos surrounding the shooting, the investigation and the hospital itself.

 Paul Giamatti’s performance is certainly one worth watching.

The film also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, James Badge Dale, Jackie Earle Haley, Ron Livingston, Colin Hanks, Tom Welling, Jeremy Strong, and David Harbour.  

Parkland will debut at the Venice Film Festival and hits theaters later this year.

Here’s the official synopsis for Parkland:

Parkland recounts the dramatic true story of the chaotic events that occurred at Parkland Hospital in Dallas on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22nd 1963.

    The chaos surrounding the JFK assassination was not just at Parkland Hospital…
    and the chaos at the scene of the crime in Dealey Plaza was intentional!!
    See the following website:

    ‘One of the most effective tactics employed by the conspirators was to “muddy the waters”….

    John . F. Kennedy’s assassination happened 50 years ago and a majority of Americans do not believe The Warren Commission Report. After 50 years of denials, free the files.
