Moviegoers are getting a peek at Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in a theatrical trailer for Game Change, HBO’s political thriller about the 2008 presidential race.

The movie, which will air on March 10 at 9 p.m., goes behind the scenes of Sen. John McCain’s campaign and in particular his decision to pick the relatively unknown Alaska governor as his controversial running mate.

“We need to create a dynamic moment in this campaign,” says Woody Harrelson, who plays McCain’s adviser Steve Schmidt. “Or we’re dead.”

McCain, played by Ed Harris, says, “So find me a woman [to be my running mate].”

A previously released trailer shows Moore as Palin coming close to a nervous breakdown.
