HBO has released the first trailer for "Game Change", the TV-movie based on the book of the same name, a gossipy, best-selling account of the 2008 presidential campaign by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.


The 60-second clip, embedded below via YouTube, seems determined to paint the story with the broadest possible brush-strokes, repeating the words "game" and "change" multiple times while giving us glimpses of Woody Harrelson and McCain/Palin campaign manager Steve Schmidt, Ed Harris as John McCain, and the role most people will probably be curious about, Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin.

"Game Change" premieres in March of 2012.
