    Washington: The first trailer for 'Reagan,' a highly anticipated biopic starring Dennis Quaid, has finally been released, offering a glimpse into the life and legacy of the 40th President of the United States.
    Directed by Sean McNamara, the film charts Ronald Reagan's journey from his modest beginnings in Dixon, Illinois, through his Hollywood stardom, and ultimately, to his presidency during the tumultuous Cold War era.
    Set against a backdrop of geopolitical tension, 'Reagan' begins with an elderly Petrovich, portrayed by Jon Voight, a former Soviet spy now in his nineties.
    As an ambitious young Russian leader visits Petrovich, seeking insight into the collapse of the Soviet Union, the seasoned spy recounts his memories of Reagan, whom he mockingly dubbed "The Crusader."
    The narrative takes audiences back to 1922, when an eleven-year-old Reagan faces a formative crisis, setting the stage for his future endeavours.
    Dennis Quaid's portrayal of Ronald Reagan captures the essence of a man whose charisma and convictions left an indelible mark on history.
    As per Deadline, the film also stars Penelope Ann Miller as Nancy Reagan, providing a poignant look at their enduring partnership.
    Mena Suvari plays Jane Wyman, Reagan's first wife, while Lesley-Anne Down brings to life the iconic British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.
    The cast is rounded out by David Henrie as a young Reagan and Kevin Dillon as Hollywood mogul Jack Warner.
    'Reagan' has been in the making for several years, with its release delayed multiple times due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the actors' strike, according to Deadline.
    Despite these setbacks, the trailer's release has rekindled excitement for the film, promising a compelling portrayal of one of America's most influential presidents.
    Director Sean McNamara expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, "This film aims to show the human side of Ronald Reagan, from his humble beginnings to his rise as a global leader. It's a story of resilience, determination, and unwavering faith," as per Deadline.
    As the trailer gains traction, audiences are eagerly awaiting the full release of 'Reagan,' anticipating a deep dive into the life of a man who navigated the complexities of Hollywood and the White House with equal aplomb.
