The first trailer has just dropped for a film which shows that "before he was President Obama, he was Barry".

As America prepares to say goodbye to its first 44th president, Netflix has released the first official trailer for Barry, the biopic on Barack Obama. First debuted at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival, the Vikram Gandhi-directed film stars Devon Terrell in the titular role, who in 1981 depicts Obama starting his junior year at Columbia University. The film focuses on a man who not only grappled with young adulthood issues but also those of race and identity. The film also stars Ashley Judd, Jenna Elfman and Anya Taylor-Joy.

Barry is set for release on Netflix on December 16. Meanwhile, watch the trailer for Kong: Skull Island.
