Los Angeles: Actor Hugh Jackman has unveiled the first look from his upcoming film "The Front Runner".

The 48-year-old actor, who features in the political drama as American senator Gary Hart, took to Twitter to share the picture.

"Day 1. Principal photography. The Front Runner. #thefrontrunner @JasonReitman @BronStudios," Jackman captioned the photo, which shows him giving a speech.
