  • What it's about: This is the story of JFK's assassination, as told by the people who played small parts in the aftermath. Zac Efron plays the young surgeon in charge of saving Kennedy's life, and Paul Giamatti stars as Abraham Zapruder, the citizen who captured the most complete footage of the shooting.
  • Why we're interested: The impressive ensemble includes Efron, Giamatti, Tom Welling, Marcia Gay Harden, Ron Livingston, Billy Bob Thornton, and Mark Duplass. It's a huge endeavor, and either this movie is going to be brilliant, or one giant mess.
  • When it opens: Oct. 4
  • Watch the trailer for Parkland.
