The Armstrong Lie - official movie trailer

Documentary film about Lance Armstrong coming this November

In 2009 documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney set out make a film about Lance Armstrong's return to professional cycling. Gibney’s project was shelved in the wake of the doping scandal that erupted in the months and years that followed. But it's now been turned into The Armstrong Lie, a two hour film that will premiere inin the USA on November 8.

Armstrong’s doping confession in an interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year opened the doors for the project to move forward with a much different narrative, one that appears to focus as much on the power and cult of personality surrounding Armstrong as the doping itself.

Sony Pictures has just released the first trailer for The Armstrong Lie. The film chronicles Armstrong’s rise to power and glory and examines the fallout from one of the greatest scandals in the history of sport.
