Matthew McConaughey shocked the world when he revealed that he had quickly dropped 40 pounds for an upcoming movie role.

Now fans of the star can see if it was all worth it, as the first trailer for that film, “Dallas Buyers Club,” has been released.

According to “Deadline,” the ‘80s-set project follows Ron Woodroof, “a real-life Texas electrician who found himself in a life-or-death battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies after being diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live.”

After refusing to accept his diagnosis, Woodroof goes on to find a treatment of his own, and in the process, formed a network of people eventually dubbed the Dallas Buyers Club.

The movie also features Jennifer Garner, Steve Zahn and a rare acting performance from actor-turned-musician Jared Leto.

“Dallas Buyers Club” will be released on November 1. What did you think of the preview for the film? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
