The next George Clooney movie is The Ides of March which he stars in and directs. The poster and trailer for the movie were released today. The poster is brilliant and a little mind-bending. The trailer is long, so you get a pretty good idea of what it is all about, which is politics and running campaigns. Other than Mr. Clooney, the film stars Ryan Gosling, Evan Rachel Wood, Paul Giamatti, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, Jeffrey Wright, and Max Minghella.
“The Ides of March takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, when an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency.”
The Ides of March is in theatres October 7, 2011.
