HBO has released a trailer for Tour de Pharmacy, a cycling mockumentary which stars Orlando Bloom, Mike Tyson and Dolph Lundgren amongst others and which focuses on the sport’s doping scandals.
The press release says: “In 1982, during a dark and fictitious time in cycling history, the sport’s most venerable, time-honored race was marred by the doping of virtually all of its competitors. Riddled with nefarious characters, that year’s competition was a hornet’s nest of moral depravity. Through the perspective of five riders, TOUR DE PHARMACY gives an inside look into the grim realities of the darkest event in a sport notoriously tainted by controversy.”
The film also stars John Cena, Jeff Goldblum, Danny Glover, Kevin Bacon, J.J. Abrams, with a cameo from Lance Armstrong, which won’t sit well with everybody.
The film was created by Andy Samberg and Murray Miller and directed by Jake Szymanski. Tour de Pharmacy premieres in the U.S. on July 8.
