Zac Efron: 'Parkland' Trailer - Watch Now!

Check out Zac Efron in the first official trailer for Parkland!

The 25-year-old actor plays Dr. Jim Carrico, the only doctor on duty the time President John F. Kennedy was brought into the hospital, following his assassination in 1963.

Official summary: November 22nd, 1963 was a day that changed the world forever when young American President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. We follow in almost real time a handful of individuals forced to make split-second decisions after this incomprehensible event that would change their lives and forever alter our worlds landscape: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital, the chief of the Dallas Secret Service, the unwitting cameraman who captured what has become the most watched and examined film in history, the FBI Agents who had gunman Lee Harvey Oswald within their grasp and Vice President Lyndon Johnson who had to take control of a country in a moments notice.

Thrust into a scenario of unprecedented drama with unimaginable consequences, these key characters respond with shock, outrage, determination and courage.

Parkland is set to open September 20th.

    wow congrats to Zac and the whole cast! this smell like an oscar nom!

  • Lo

    Actually no, it doesn’t, well not for the acting at least, the script is kind off enhancing but it left me a terribly bad taste in the mouth when watching it and the lack of emphatic feeling to it

  • lauren

    thats’ great for you.

    it’s gonna be an A M A Z I N G movie I can’t wait

  • laland

    @Lo: there are 2 options.. you are blind or you are a hater.. :p

  • laland

    @Lo: or you don’t know anything about MOVIES!

    @Lo: This film is amazing and I think you missed the whole point of the film . This film talkes place in a span of three days and these people affected had no time to think and feel . They as the rest of the nation were in shock and they are the ones where from the instant the shooting took place had to take responsibility where they had to do their jobs no matter what they were feeling. They has to do what no man or woman should have to be asked to do. I am especially proud of Zac and the entire cast . Well done, I think you have to see it again.

  • OK

    Loved this trailer and not just because of Zac. I can’t wait to see this movie. Zac does look convincing in the little part we did see and I wish him nothing but the best.

  • amelia25

    Beautiful Zac!

  • OK

    @IMO Thank you for sharing this info. with us. This is an amazing cast and I’m so proud that Zac is a part of it.

    i’m not saying this is a bad film or not an Oscar quality. but it still early, we haven’t saw American Hustle, Blue The Warmest Color, Grand Central, Nebraska,The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, Inside Llewny Davis,12 years of slavery, The Counselor,Gravity, Serena,Foxcather, and Monument Men so don’t get your hope much.

  • OK

    Hopes up or not it looks like a very good movie from the trailer. But just like beauty it is in the eye of the beholder.

  • OK

    You can almost feel the urgency of this day in history.
    Even my Mom says she would love to see this film.

  • OK

    Dad wants to make it a family night. Can’t wait for Oct..

  • OK

    Can’t wait to see what the critics say about this movie.

  • OK

    Just to make it clear I would see this movie if Zac was not in it.
    Love movies based on historical events.

    @Lo: You should actually watch the trailer instead of hating. People don’t understand the impact of Zac being in this film, seeing as he become famous from HSM. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Disney star have such a good turn in an acting career after leaving Disney. Even if Zac doesn’t get a nomination for awards of high honor, the fact that he’s playing one of the most important characters means a lot. And he’s impressed a lot of people already with this film. I’ve been a fan of his since HSM. Seeing him get here has been amazing. I’m looking forward to seeing this film!

  • nic

    I can’t wait to see this film too!

  • nic

    before I go for those dreams, wanted to see this up top… it is, but needs to move more to the left….

  • nic

    I really have high hopes for this role so can’t wait until Oct 4th!

  • nic

    odd though… that it is essentially the same release date as The Paperboy, one year later…

  • nic

    not sure how many hits req’d to move 1 to the left… but don’t think I can get there tonight :(

  • claudia

    its looks good nothing harmless in terms of history. Although @Lo seems a little rude i think the point they were trying to get across but failed is that there is a lot of competition in the oscar noms this year. however that doesnt mean this cant just be a light history reminder from a different perspective right?

  • xx

    he was just actually a doctor in a movie and then looks like he’s the one who rule the movie, uhmm they just use Zac Efron

  • Gary T Burnaska

    This year will mark the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination.

  • OK

    Glad they moved the opening date. Can’t wait to see this movie.

  • IMO

    @Ok Family night with Dad ? See what an olive branch can do and prideful barriers come down . Ironic that it’s a film starring Zac which I find the most heartfelt. I can’t wait to hear your view and theirs on the film.

  • sharona

    I am just so excited for this movie, and with seeing the trailer, I am almost counting the days. I just know Zac will be excellent as Dr. Jim.

    @xx Zac is definitely not the whole movie. His scene was featured in the trailer because it was one of the key scenes of the event of the day. There are a lot of actors in this film and no real big parts for any one of the actors, more of a group effort.

    @OK Big smile on my face knowing that this will be a family outing with Dad along! :)

  • OK

    @IMO Thank you so very much. Believe me it was the first thing I thought of that it is a Zac movie that may be bringing my family back together.

  • OK

    @Sharona Thank you first family outing since I was outed. LOL forgive me I had to. Enjoy this weekend and my thoughts are with you.

  • OK

    @IMO Sorry I forgot to add I sure will let you and others know what we think of the movie. Especially my Dad . He has to know what choosing this movie would mean to me.

  • IMO

    This because I couldn’t stop laughing, it was so cute.

    @Ok Ahh so sweet and lovely. It will be a night to remember (lol)
    in more ways than one. .

  • OK

    @IMO Thank you for posting this it is adorable.
    “A Night To Remember” LOL Took me all of 6 seconds to get it. Thanks.

  • Tiffany

    I’m so excited. I love reading about JFK’s assassination, and all the theories surrounding his death, so it’ll be interesting seeing the hospital scenes since those aren’t usually talked about as much. Plus I love Zac.

  • jasmin

    Ok guys that’s Lo’s opinion. Respect it and move on and stop starting something.

  • kelly martineau

    Likes like a good movie. With zac every movie is good.
