Framing John Delorean — Official Trailer


added: Wed, Mar 6th '19

In this hybrid between a documentary and a biographical drama, Alec Baldwin portrays notorious auto-maker tycoon John DeLorean, the famed inventor of the DMC DeLorean sports car (better known in pop culture as the car of the "Back to the Future" time machine) who, in the early 1980s, was caught on tape setting up an illegal cocaine trafficking deal during an FBI sting operation.

Featuring archival footage and interviews with John DeLorean's now-adult children, "Framing John Delorean" chronicles his rise and his much-publicized fall, with dramatized re-enactments that casts Baldwin as DeLorean and "Deadpool" star Morena Baccarin as DeLorean's model/actress wife Cristina Ferrare.

Co-starring Josh Charles, Dean Winters, and Michael Rispoli, "Framing John Delorean" is directed by documentary filmmakers Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce, whose credits include the "Batman & Bill" documentary about the story of the uncredited co-creator of Batman, comic book writer Bill Finger.

Argott and Joyce also directed, together, the quirky romantic indie comedy "Slow Learners" with Adam Pally and Sarah Burns. While Argott is also known for directing the documentaries "Rock School" and "The Art of the Steal."

Set to make its world premiere next month at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, "Framing John Delorean" is due out in theaters and VOD on June 7th. Watch the official trailer, above.

Money, power, politics, drugs, scandal, and fast cars. The incredible story of John DeLorean is the stuff of a Hollywood screenwriter's dreams. But who was the real John DeLorean? To some, he was a renegade visionary who revolutionized the automobile industry. To others, he was the ultimate con man.

For the first time, FRAMING JOHN DELOREAN recounts the extraordinary life and legend of the controversial automaker, tracing his meteoric rise through the ranks of General Motors, his obsessive quest to build a sports car that would conquer the world, and his shocking fall from grace on charges of cocaine trafficking.

Interweaving a treasure trove of archival footage with dramatic vignettes starring Alec Baldwin, FRAMING JOHN DELOREAN is a gripping look at a man who gambled everything in his pursuit of the American Dream.
