THE CAMPAIGN Trailer Has Will Ferrell Facing Off Against Zach Galifianakis
The first trailer for The Campaign starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis has arrived, and it is hilarious. This film has Ferrell’s Cam Brady as the incumbent, facing off Galifianakis’ Marty Huggins facing off against one another in a race for a North Carolina district. The film also stars Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, Katherine LaNasa, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd and Brian Cox.
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 arrives in theaters on August 10th. I am a huge fan of both Ferrell and Galifianakis, so this is a must watch for me. I think it is timed perfectly for the upcoming Presidential election. Do you plan on seeing this film in theaters?
