In the first trailer for Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer the TV movie shows the athlete shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in dramatic scenes.

"Prove to me this is what you want, that you are worthy of me and this relationship," he says as the couple argue and he grabs a cricket bat.

The film stars Andreas Damm as Pistorius and Toni Garrn as Steenkamp.

The dramatic TV movie tells the story of how Pistorius became the first double-leg amputee to participate in the Olympics.

It then follows the fatal shooting on Valentine's Day, his relationship with Steenkamp and his homicide trial.

The film will premiere in the US on 11 November.

The Paralympic gold medallist was sentenced to six years' jail last summer for murdering his girlfriend by shooting her at his home.

The double amputee shot Steenkamp dead on Valentine's Day 2013, claiming he mistook her for an intruder.

Reeva was facing the closed bathroom door when she was hit in the hip by the first bullet.

She then fell back onto a magazine rack as a second bullet hit her right arm.

The final two shots from a 9mm pistol hit her in the head and she died in Pistorius' arms.
