HBO's 'The Normal Heart' Trailer: "I've Never Seen or Heard of Anything Like This!"Kevin Fitzpatrick |
HBO continually prepares for a banner weekend this coming Sunday with the premieres of 'Game of Thrones' season 4, Mike Judge's 'Silicon Valley' and 'Veep' season 3, but also promotion for its late spring and summer assets. To wit, the latest trailer for HBO's star-studded Ryan Murphy AIDS drama 'The Normal Heart' has arrived, chock full of Emmy-caliber performances we'll be hearing about in the months to come.
For those unfamiliar with the film or its origins, HBO's 'The Normal Heart' follows ‘The Avengers‘ star Mark Ruffalo as activist Ned Weeks, one of the first to draw attention to New York's HIV-AIDS epidemic of the ’80s. Based on the Tony-winning Larry Kramer play of the same name, the drama also stars Julia Roberts as Polio survivor and physician Dr. Emma Brookner, 'White Collar' vet Matt Bomer, ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ star Jim Parsons reprising his role of activist Tommy Boatwright from the 2011 stage version, as well as Taylor Kitsch.
The film itself will premiere on the network Sunday, May 25, so take a look at Entertainment Weekly's new trailer above (giving us longer looks at the star-studded cast), and tell us in the comments what you want to see from HBO's next tearjerker!
