George Clooney is having a hard time in The Descendants trailer

May. 25, 2011by:

Director/writer Alexander Payne is back and he's brought George Clooney with him.

The trailer for THE DESCENDANTS looks like a true return to form for Payne. Clooney tries his best to deal with the situations that life has handed him and taking care of two daughters is never an easy thing to do alone. The film looks heart warming and overall hilarious, especially watching Robert Forster punch that annoying kid in the face. You'll enjoy it.

Check out the synopsis and trailer below.

"From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning SIDEWAYS, set in Hawaii, THE DESCENDANTS is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family's land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries."

Extra Tidbit: Yay! Matthew Lillard is in this!

I'm still waiting for Payne to do something that really blows me away. And I'm not a huge fan of the trend of shlubbing it up for the Oscar grab. I would rather see George to a sequel (or prequel) to THE AMERICAN than to see him go the "normal guy" route. That really gets irritating after a while.

I like the path Clooney is taking to get a Leading Man Oscar......

It's way more subtle than DiCaprio's way of getting an Oscar. Looks like a great movie can't wait to see it.

Sideways was over-hyped, unfunny, boring bullshit (bring the hate).

No hate; typical response of somebody too young/immature to understand the subject material or characters. Your avatar shows me all I need to know about what you need to be entertained.

What's even more typical is that you think I'm young or immature because I don't like pretentious bullshit. But keep on feeling superior because of the types of movies you like, I'm sure it helps you sleep at night.

You trolled, asked for "the hate", and then got your panties in a twist because I soft-balled you some warmed over snark? If you aren't 12, I'd start lying and say you are - its less embarrassing.

I'm not superior because I have better taste in movies than you. I'm superior because I'm better than you. In every conceivable way.

Expressing my opinion on a shitty movie isn't trolling, it's an opinion. If you don't even understand that, I don't understand how you're superior to anything. Let alone a 12 year old.

I agree with you. I wouldn't say bullshit, but yes: it was over-hyped. It wasn't that funny or heart-warming, and it wasn't that interesting. I felt similarly about ABOUT SCHMIDT.

"Your avatar shows me all I need to know about what you need to be entertained" - smooveluv.

This is some condescending bullshit. You are not better than anyone, smooveluv, because you prefer independent films over hardcore genre films like High Tension.

PS: I happen to like High Tension AND Sideways.

Oh, you picked up on me being condescending? And I was trying to be so subtle about it. And why the P.S. about what you like in movies? You certainly don't need to validate your taste in movies with me or anybody else.

I don't NEED to do anything. I do what I want. You come off as an unpleasant and unlovable individual, smooveluv. It takes some talent to do that in the written word, so congrats.
