HOT TRAILER: Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club

Get ready to see Matthew McConaughey 47 pounds lighter in action! The trailer for Dallas Buyers Club, the movie he famously shed nearly 50 pounds for, hit the web Tuesday.

In the film, inspired by true events, Matthew plays Ron Woodroof, a heterosexual man who tests HIV-positive in the 1980’s. When he’s told he only has 30 days to live, Ron smuggles non-FDA-approved drugs, and eventually starts a club to give the drugs to others suffering from the disease. Many of the others are gay men, who the 43-year-old’s character refuses to even associate with at the beginning of the story.

Jennifer Garner makes several appearances in the trailer, as Ron’s doctor, and eventually, a friend. The film also stars Jared Leto, who shed 30 pounds to play the part of a transgender woman.
