New trailer for The Campaign with Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis wants your vote!
A few days ago we ran the faux campaign ads for Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis' characters in THE CAMPAIGN and today we have the full blown trailer. The Jay-Roach (AUSTIN POWERS, GAME CHANGE) film also stars Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, and Brian Cox.
Check the ballot:
This looks like a blast to me and I love the pairing of Ferrell and Galifianakis. I think these two will chew up the screen with their antics and that's good shit. Ferrell seems to be channeling a hybrid of Ron Burgundy and George W. Bush, while Galifianakis' carries a lisp that possibly suggests inbreeding (i.e. cousin Seth). Whatever the case, these guys look to be in top comedic form with this and I do belive I'll be casting my vote for THE CAMPAIGN. That just means I'll likely be seeing it in theaters. In case there was any confusion.
Oh, and here's an official synopsis:
When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will 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: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach 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. As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other, in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from “Meet the Parents” director Jay Roach that takes today’s political circus to its logical next level. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there’s room to dig a whole lot deeper.
THE CAMPAIGN takes office on August 10, 2012.
|Extra Tidbit:||If you've never seen Zack Galifianakis' stand up before, it's well worth the investment. Check it out on Netflix streaming.|
