Ryan Gosling, George Clooney in “The Ides of March” trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: If George Clooney’s political drama “The Ides of March” was a presidential candidate, it would be ahead in the polls.

The film continues to announce its presence in the still-forming awards race by throwing down impressive marketing salvos as it prepares for a full-court, fall film festival push. First there was the stylish poster (pictured above). And now Clooney’s directorial effort, which follows a young political aide (Ryan Gosling) on a difficult campaign trail, gets a full trailer. It made its debut on Yahoo Movies, but we have it for you below:

Clooney’s film is an adaptation of Beau Willimon’s play “Farragut North,” a reference to a Washington, D.C. neighborhood, though as you can see, a lot of “Ides” takes place on the campaign trail. The teaser gives away a lot of plot, though you get the impression Clooney has more hidden up his sleeve.

We’ll start figuring out where “Ides” stands in the awards race soon enough. The picture opens the Venice Film Festival next month before moving on to Toronto and possibly Telluride. After a festival run, it opens in theaters on Oct. 7.
