HBO releases full trailer for Paterno, starring Al Pacino as the disgraced Penn State coach

Paterno, the long-awaited biopic starring Al Pacino that is based around the former Penn State coach's life and events that led to his firing, finally has a release date.

"Paterno", which stars Oscar victor Al Pacino in the title role and premieres April 7, chronicles Paterno's final months as head football coach at Penn State, centering on the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.

HBO on Friday released a full-length trailer for its upcoming movie "Paterno" that stars Al Pacino as the late Penn State football coach. After becoming the "winningest" coach in college football history, Paterno's legacy is challenged and he is forced to face questions of institutional failure in regard to the victims. The trailer showcases the various confrontations Paterno faced from individuals wondering exactly what he knew about Sandusky's abuse as well as the support he received from many at the university.

But the Jerry Sandusky scandal, in which the longtime defensive coordinator under Paterno was arrested and charged with 40 criminal counts surrounding child sexual abuse, came just days after Paterno notched his record-breaking 409th win. Right? The cut in the trailer makes it appear as if Paterno doubts his recollection or knowledge there, but whether or not it plays out that way in the final film remains to be seen. HBO announced it will air on Saturday, April 7.
