“The Armstrong Lie” Official Movie Trailer
Originally conceived as a feel good movie called The Road Back about Lance Armstrong’s comeback for an 8th post-cancer Tour de France bid, Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney began putting together a movie in 2008. In fact, he was just about to wrap in 2011 when Tyler Hamilton’s 60 Minutes interview went live. Now, five years after starting, it’s close to release and comes with a significantly different tone. And a new title.
The Armstrong Lie follows him through his 2009 attempt at Le Tour, through his ultimate confession on Oprah Winfrey’s show and for some time after. The result is the movie teased above. Check the full press conference from the Toronto International Film Festival below…
