New Parkland Poster
Dallas, November 22, 1963

Whether you're a grassy knoll-er or a book depository theorist, believe in the magic bullet, the lone gunman or a conspiracy theory that reaches so deep your aunt was involved, you probably have a theory on what exactly happened in downtown Dallas on November 22, 1963. Fifty years on from the assassination of John F. Kennedy, theories new and old are sure to be rekindled. Amid all the hubbub, Parkland will offer a fresh multi-stranded perspective on the events of that fateful day and there's a new poster for it soon to adorn a railway platform near you.


Written and directed by Peter Landesman, the film digs into the details of the Kennedy assassination to find the people who were affected by the traumatic event.

They include Billy Bob Thornton as Forrest Sorrells, the head of Dallas’s Secret Service branch, who took the shooting personally, the rookie doctor (Zac Efron) and chief nurse (Marcia Gay Harden) who treated JFK when he was delivered to Parkland hospital, and Abraham Zapruder (Paul Giamatti), a witness who happened to be filming the motorcade as it came past.

"That 26 seconds of film changed his life and all of our lives forever," explains Landesman. "It's the most examined and investigated piece of celluloid in the history of film."



Witness it for yourself when Parkland hits UK cinemas on November 22, the 50th anniversary of the assassination.
