Matthew McConaughey in "Dallas Buyers Club"

A first trailer for "Dallas Buyers Club," starring an alarmingly emaciated Matthew McConaughey as an AIDS patient in 1985, has landed. The film is directed by Jean-Marc Vallee ("Young Victoria"), and hits theaters November 1 (previously December 6), right in time for Oscar season. Watch below.

The true-life story centers on Ron Woodroof (McConaughey), diagnosed with AIDS and predicted to have 30 days to live. Woodroof however beats the odds and begins overseeing the illegal smuggling of life-saving drugs for others battling the terminal illness. Jared Leto stars as a cross-dresser in cahoots with McConaughey's under-the-table pharmacy; Jennifer Garner also stars.

Our TOH! video interview with McConaughey, shot while he was slimmed down for the role in "Dallas Buyers Club" and discussing his recent streak of indie successes (also including "Mud" and "Magic Mike"), is here.

    According to a report from the official Herpes dating site HerpesSoulMate.COM, over 400 million are afflicted with herpes, HPV, HIV/AIDS or any other STDs in the world. So I think this research and posts are very useful for people living with herpes, HPV, HIV/AIDS or any other STDs. Great thanks.
