As the lines between history, Hollywood, and politics continue to blur, this weekend HBO Films has got the goods for fans of all three.

 All the Way is set to premiere on HBO this Saturday, May 21 at 8 p.m. ET. Based on the Tony Award-winning play, the film chronicles President Lyndon B. Johnson's efforts to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Starring Bryan Cranston, Anthony Mackie, Melissa Leo and Frank Langella, the star-studded film is directed by Jay Roach and adapted by Robert Schenkkan from his own play. 

The film will be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, and HBO On Demand. In the meantime, check out these red carpet shots from the May 10 premiere in Los Angeles.
