We haven't seen many memorable political thrillers in the last few years, but, from the looks of "The Ides of March" trailer, we might finally have a drama we can get behind.
The film, starring George Clooney and Ryan Gosling, is based on Beau Willimon’s 2008 play "Farragut North," which is loosely based on Howard Dean’s 2004 political campaign. "March" revolves around Clooney's character, governor-turned-presidential candidate Mike Morris, and Gosling, who plays Morris' idealistic communications guru.
Academy favorites, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei and Paul Giamatti also appear in the flick.
What do you think of the trailer?
