Inside each and every one of us is something more potent, more powerful than any drug — it’s called the will to survive.

The first trailer for Stephen Frears’ “The Program” made its debut online today (12th June), offering us a first look at “X-Men: The Last Stand” star Ben Foster as American cyclist Lance Armstrong.

The Lance Armstrong biopic is based on “Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong”, the award-winning book written by Sunday Times journalist David Walsh. It illustrates Walsh’s 13-year fight to bring out the truth behind all of Armstrong’s Tour de France titles. The cyclist’s victories have been described as his “Seven Deadly Sins”, after he admitted to doping.

Frears’ biopic on the cycling legend featured a stellar cast that includes Foster, Chris O’Dowd, Guillaume Canet, Lee Pace, Dustin Hoffman, and Jesse Plemons. As shown in the trailer, O’Dowd is portraying Walsh, the sports journalist who is sceptical about Armstrong’s success and is determined to bring Armstrong down.

He’s a man transformed — he’s recovered from cancer and turned into bloody Superman. … The man is a cheat,” O’ Dowd said in his role as Walsh.

Watch the trailer below:

It is unclear when “The Program” will be released in Malaysia, but it is slated for release on 23rd September 2015 in France.
