There are certain moments in history where everyone who was alive during the event, remembers exactly where they were when it happened. Such is the case for JFK's assassination. A tragic turn of events for the beloved President and our Nation. But how many people know what happened in the days after the shooting?

The upcoming film "Parkland" promises to tell the story of "the JFK assassination as you've never seen it before". The film is based on the book "Four Days in November" by Vincent Bugliosi. It will explore the events at the Dallas Parkland Hospital, where Kennedy was taken after being shot. The film will follow all the people involved with the events, from Kennedy's killer to the Doctor that tried to help him.

An incredible cast will bring these events alive on the big-screen, including Paul Giamatti as Abraham Zapruder, the cameraman who captured the only known footage of the assassination. Jeremy Strong plays Lee Harvey Oswald, Kennedy’s killer. Marcia Gay Harden portrays Nurse Doris Nelson. Billy Bob Thornton is a secret service agent who rushed to Kennedy’s side after the shooting and Zac Efron plays Dr. James Carrico, who tended to Kennedy upon his arrival at the hospital.

"Parkland" will hit AMC Theatres on September 20th.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
