Game Change is HBO’s Highest-Rated Film in 8 Years…
You betcha it is! Julianne Moore plays Sarah Palin in the made-for-TV movie which premiered Saturday on HBO. Game Change drew in over 2 million viewers, making it the most watched original film for HBO since Something the Lord Made.
The controversial film is based on a book of the same name written by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. It’s about the “truth” of what went down when the former Alaskan governor ran for vice president alongside John McCain, played by Ed Harris.
As far as what the real-life Palin and McCain feel about the film – it’s unclear because they claim to have not seen it. However, Palin did have this to say on Fox News:
“I’m not concerned about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things to be concerned about.” Adding, “I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters. For instance, our son called from Afghanistan yesterday and he sounded good, and that’s what matters. Being in the good graces of Hollywood’s ‘Team Obama’ isn’t top of my list.”
Oh Sarah, you’re probably just bummed they didn’t offer you the role.
Who do you think plays a better Palin: Tina Fey or Julianne Moore?
After all the Hunger Games anticipation, fans finally got a glimpse of their favorite stars on the red carpet last night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
All eyes were on Jennifer Lawrence as she shined in a gold Prabal Gurung dress. Her dress was as fierce as her role (Katniss Everdeen) with triangle cutouts at the rib cage and an open T-shaped back.
Liam Hemsworth – the male lead Gale Hawthorne – looks quite handsome in Dolce and Gabbana.
Ross directed Big and Pleasantville…so Hunger Games shouldn’t disappoint; We have to wait til it hits theatres March 23 to be sure!
