Lance Armstrong’s meteoric rise and subsequent fall is put under a microscope in the new trailer for Working Title’s biopic “The Program,” which stars Ben Foster as the disgraced cyclist.

“He wins and wins, and he celebrates. He meets the president. He gets more sponsors, more money, more fame. The man is a cheat,” says Chris O’Dowd, who plays David Walsh, chief sports writer of British newspaper The Sunday Times and author of book “Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong.”

Directed by “Philomena” director Stephen Frears, the film chronicles Armstrong’s rise and fall from fame, including his Tour de France wins, battle with cancer and high-profile doping scandal.

The cast also includes Lee Pace and Dustin Hoffman.

Working Title produced the movie in association with StudioCanal. John Hodge adapted the script from Walsh’s book.
