On Sunday, in addition to crashing the Internet with the highly-anticipated finale of True Detective, and airing the first finale of Looking, HBO also debuted the first trailer for its adaptation of The Normal Heart.

The HBO film, which premieres May 25, focuses on the emotion in a 45-second teaser. Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, and Julia Roberts take centerstage in this preview of Ryan Murphy's version of Larry Kramer's Tony award-winning play about the rise of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in New York City.

In addition to Ruffalo, Bomer, and Roberts, the film also stars Taylor Kitsch and Jim Parsons.
