The upcoming biopic of Ted Bundy starring Zac Efron landed its first teaser in the wake of Sundance and honestly it doesn’t look half bad. Now I’m not saying it looks great or be the biopic we want but it does have some charm in the trailer and I’m interested in seeing what Zac Efron(Neighbors, The Paperboy) and Jim Parsons(The Big Bang Theory) bring to the courtroom aspect of the story and it’s really cool to see Metallica’s leading man James Hatfield in the trailer. I’m hoping we see more information soon after Sundance. I’ll be catching this in theaters for sure.
Here’s a plot summary: Ted (Efron) is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins) ultimately cannot resist his charms. For her, Ted is a match made in heaven, and she soon falls head over heels in love with the dashing young man. A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out … until, out of nowhere, their perfect life is shattered. Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. Concern soon turns to paranoia—and, as evidence piles up, Liz is forced to consider that the man with whom she shares her life could actually be a psychopath.
