Here’s the first trailer for The Eyes of Tammy Faye, the upcoming biopic starring Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield as husband and wife televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, who rose to prominence throughout the ’70s and ’80s. The movie is directed by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick) and in case you couldn’t tell from the big hair and makeup it definitely seems to be tackling the subject matter with a satirical edge in the vein of recent films like I, Tonya and Adam McKay’s Vice. Based on the 2000 documentary of the same name, the movie is set to release just as awards season kicks off with a Venice or TIFF premiere likely in the cards as well. The Eyes of Tammy Faye hits theatres on Sept. 17th; check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
