HBO has dropped the full-length trailer for its upcoming Hugh Jackman starrer, Bad Education. The film was first released at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and garnered highly positive reviews from those in attendance. It currently has a solid 89% on Rotten Tomatoes with an average critic rating of 7.36/10.
HBO purchased the worldwide rights to Bat Education for $US 20 million. The film is based on a 2004 New York magazine article penned by Robert Kolker (Lost Girls). What’s utterly interesting is that Bad Education‘s scriptwriter Mike Makowsky was actually a Roslyn student when this huge scandal broke.
Check out the official trailer below:
Bad Education synopsis (per Rotten Tomatoes):
Inspired by true events, BAD EDUCATION follows Frank Tassone (Hugh Jackman) and Pam Gluckin (Allison Janney) who reign over a popular Long Island school district on the verge of the nation’s top spot, spurring record college admissions and soaring property values. But when an embezzlement scheme surfaces that threatens to destroy all they’ve built, Frank is forced to maintain order and secrecy — by whatever means necessary.
Bad Education will hit HBO on 25 April 2020.
