Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis Step Up The Campaign With Two New Posters
Summer 2012 has been front-loaded with action, be it the superhero thrills of The Avengers or the sci-fi experimentation of the time-traveling Men In Black 3. Now that we’re gearing up for The Amazing Spider-Man and, later, The Dark Knight Riss, audiences might be looking around and wondering where all the good comedies have been. Some are coming. We have Ted this Friday, The Watch in July, and The Campaign in August. The laughs are on the horizon.
For my money, The Campaign is the one that could walk away the big winner. Will Ferrell’s comedies usually rest on whom he’s paired opposite, and Zach Galifianakis looks to be the perfect low-key foil for Ferrell’s usually overblown deliveries. The first trailer had a few memorable gems, and the posters are rolling out right on schedule. And today we have two new ones at the tail end of this story.
Basically, The Campaign is little more than two huge-right-now comedians butting heads in a contemporary (but formulaic) comedy. Capitalizing on the upcoming presidential election, the movie stars Ferrell and Galifianakis as candidates vying for congressional seats in a small southern district. Jay Roach of Meet the Parents and Dinner for Schmucks is at the helm (a good sign), and the marketing campaign is really playing up the “size” of the talent. Here are the latest posters, courtesy of Yahoo Movies.
The Campaign will be in theaters on August 10th and you can read more about it in our Blend Film Database. Are you looking forward to seeing the film? Let us know in the comments section below.
