A new trailer has been released for The Program, the film about Lance Armstrong that hits UK cinemas next month.

Starring Ben Foster as the disgraced cyclist, it's based on Sunday Times journalist David Walsh's book, Seven Deadly Sins.

The movie is directed by Stephen Frears, who ahead of its premiere at the Tornonto International Film Festival at the weekend said he was attracted to the subject because he wanted to make a crime film, not a biopic.

Produced by Working Title, it will play in UK cinemas from 16 October.
