Meanwhile, Roberts plays Dr. Emma Brookner, who unsuccessfully attempts to gain government funding for HIV/AIDS research in order to find a cure for the deadly virus.

The film's trailer is an emotional teaser for what's sure to be a powerful small-screen version of Larry Kramer's original 1985 off-Broadway play.

The Normal Heart, which was directed by Glee head honcho Ryan Murphy and also stars Jonathan Groff and Jim Parsons, premieres on HBO on Sunday, May 25.
