George Clooney’s “Ides of March” gets poster
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: George Clooney’s political drama “The Ides of March” is one of those films due out later this year that I’d pay top dollar to be able to see right now. You can keep your “Cowboys & Aliens.” Clooney’s next directorial effort has a mouthwatering cast chewing over a relevant, contemporary plotline that could have been ripped from today’s headlines for the benefit of our entertainment.
It has to be good.
We’ll find out soon. Clooney’s film is gearing up for a major fall-season awards push, opening the Venice Film Festival before shifting over to Toronto (where we plan to catch it).
Today, we get our first look at the film’s poster, a mirror image piece of visual trickery that, I hope, suggests some of the mind-sharpening cinema we’re due to get once “Ides” opens on Oct. 7. It’s below:
Clooney’s story centers around the political players on a campaign trail. Ryan Gosling plays the newcomer to the party, an idealistic young politician-in-trining who learns firsthand how slimy the game can get. In addition to Clooney, the cast also includes Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Jeffrey Wright and Evan Rachel Wood.
