The first trailer for Oscar hopeful Our Brand Is Crisis has appeared online, and you can view it in the player below!
Directed by David Gordon Green (Mangelhorn) and produced by George Clooney’s Smoke House Pictures, Crisis is a political comedy-drama that is a “loose” remake of the 2005 documentary film by Rachel Boynton of the same name. Oscar winner Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) stars in the film as “Calamity” Joe Bodine, alongside Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo), Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks), Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Scoot McNairy (Frank), Ann Down (Compliance) and Joaquim de Almeida (Desperado).
Failing badly in the polls, a Bolivian presidential candidate enlists the services of an American management team for help. The main star is “Calamity” Jane Bodine (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant strategist who comes out of self-imposed retirement for a chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy. With Candy working for the opposition, it becomes a down-and-dirty, all-out battle between political consultants, where nothing is sacred and winning is all that matters.
Our Brand Is Crisis debuts in US cinemas on October 30th.
