For any of you HBO subscribers out there, coming March 10th -- You Betcha: Catch a First Viewing of Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in HBO's Game Change:

Last February, HBO started production on Game Change, a television movie that would attempt to explain the Republican Party’s confounding strategy during the 2008 presidential election. Today, the first full-length trailer for the much-anticipated film—which stars Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin, Ed Harris as a tired-looking John McCain, and Woody Harrelson as McCain’s campaign chair Steve Schmidt—has surfaced, promising plenty of dramatized campaign plot twists, all of the memorable sound bites of the last election (hockey mom/pit bull analogy included!), and what appear to be stellar performances from the principal cast. Oh, the preview also features a shrill Palin freaking out in a stairwell, a scene that rivals some of Lifetime’s most lurid original-movie moments.

(Scarce edit): Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson) is the one who says she's having "a complete mental meltdown".
