Walt Disney Studios has provided us with fourteen new stills and photos from its upcoming epic Secretariat, effectively doubling our existing gallery. The collection of stills gives us our first look at Amanda ‘AJ’ Michalka, Carissa Capobianco, Sean Michael Cunningham, Dylan Walsh, Jacob Rhodes and Kevin Connolly in their roles as well as featuring Diane Lane, John Malkovich, Nelsan Ellis and Otto Thorwath. The new stills have been added to the beginning of the gallery displayed below.
Based on the remarkable true story, Secretariat chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner. Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (Malkovich)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.
Secretariat opens nationwide on October 8, 2010.
