It's Zach Galifianakis Vs. Will Ferrell In First Political Ads For The Campaign
When I was at CinemaCon in Las Vegas a couple weeks ago I got to see footage from a lot of upcoming movies, but no trailer made me laugh harder than the one for Jay Roach's The Campaign. The film is about two rival politicians running for a congressional seat in North Carolina and has an all-star cast that includes Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Sarah Baker, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Dan Akyroyd, and Dylan McDermott. Sadly, Warner Bros. has not yet released the trailer online - or any trailer for that matter - but we do have something special for you today. Part of a viral marketing strategy, two Facebook pages have been created where fans can throw their vote behind either Cam Brady (Ferrell) or Marty Huggins (Galifianakis). What's more, both pages have posted the their first respective campaign commercials. You can watch both TV spots below - which may or may not contain footage from the final film - and head over to the Facebook pages to follow the candidates!
The Campaign was written by Shawn Harwell and Chris Henchy and will be Jay Roach's first poltical comedy after directing the hit HBO original dramas Recount and Game Change. Look for the title when it arrives in theaters on August 10th and read more about it in our Blend Film Database.
