Warner Bros has unveiled the trailer for "The Campaign" comedy, starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as political rivals. Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, and Brian Cox co-star. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naive Marty Huggins (Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors' support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family's political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.
The new movie is directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Parents) and is set to hit theaters on August 10th.
Meh, looks like recycled the Ferrell/ Galifianackis premises in different fields...
Looks like ANCHORMAN, no wait, like TALLADEGA NIGHTS tossed with HEAD OF STATE and possessed by STEPBROTHERS putdowns, plus supposed humor from hurting a baby like in THE HANGOVER, minus the clever, witty comedy.
These two guys' comedy are really an acquired taste (Ferrell has done it before with STEPBROTHERS, but Galifianikas is no charismatic John C. Reilly), so they're demographic will be extremely small, thus I'll be surprised (& a little depressed) if this movie comes out even.
This trailer made me realize that we probably need stricter criteria before we let someone become President. How about a comprehensive, three hour, pass-or-fail exam that covers modern economics, U.S. history, and U.S. law?
Will was funny 10 or so years ago when he was simply doing glorified cameos in movies. Unfortunately someone gave him the idea the world wanted to see his tired act in sh*tty movies until he dies. I bet it was his agent.
