Tuesday Trailers - The Ides of March

The marketing for George Clooney's latest directorial effort has been fantastic, there's the tense and talky trailer, below, or the weirdly symmetrical posters. Unfortunately such a perfect campaign does have it's drawbacks, the film has to truly deliver to the promise. Early word from Venice indicates whilst a fine adaptation of Beau Willimon's "Farragut North" it doesn't hit all the notes, but with it's timely political parables it's bound to be worth catching up with.

The Ides of March is released on 28 October 2011.

The trailer makes this one "feel" a little like "Up In The Air"... Wonder if Gosling and Clooney will offset the presence of Giamatti, who I find hard to watch for some reason. The premise looks awfully interesting, though, and timely. Anxious to get your reaction after seeing it.

I forget about your Giamatti aversion. Odd.

I'll getting a vibe that crosses Duplicity with Primary Colors, but oddly could be both better and worse than those films. It's great to have so many movies that look worth discussing around at the moment. Here in the UK we're certainly getting spoiled this autumn.
