“Inside each and every one of us is something more potent, more powerful than any drug — it’s called the will to survive.”
StudioCanal has released the first trailer for Stephen Frears’ hotly anticipated Lance Armstrong biopic, and it offers a glimpse into just how well Ben Foster, who plays the disgraced cycling legend, can keep a big secret.
The thrilling preview shows Foster’s performance-enhancing treatment — which he repeatedly and very convincingly denies — and the success it brings him in cycling competitions.
But Chris O’Dowd (as sports journalist David Walsh) is on to the beloved athlete: “He’s a man transformed — he’s recovered from cancer and turned into bloody Superman. … The man is a cheat.”
Also starring Lee Pace, Dustin Hoffman, Jesse Plemons and Guillaume Canet, Frears’ film — from a script by Trainspotting writer John Hodge — traces Armstrong’s career from his successful battle against cancer through his seven Tour de France victories to the doping scandal that eventually brought him down.
