Three more fantastic new clips from the film have been released, courtesy of Collider, and they give another great look at the film and what we can expect from it ahead of its 28th October release here.
“During the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency.”
Directed by Clooney, and co-written by Clooney, Grant Heslov, and Beau Willimon based on Willimon’s play, Farragut North, The Ides of March also stars Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, Paul Giamatti, and Evan Rachel Wood, all of whom can be seen in the clips below. The video beneath actually has four clips, but the second of the four is in fact the clip we saw at the end of last month, which means three of them are brand new, and all are excellent viewing material.
The film got its world premiere a few weeks ago at the Venice Film Festival, where it was very well received and won the Brian Prize, before moving on to the Toronto International Film Festival on 9th September, and the Athens Film Festival where it is playing today.
Though it’s still early days yet, the film is very much anticipated to get a number of nominations at next year’s Academy Awards, and everything we’ve seen from the film so far would suggest that those predictions will be right. The nominations for the 84th Academy Awards are to be announced on 24th January next year, so we’ll have to wait and see until then to find out, but I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed, because I have every expectation this is going to be awesome.
America is lucky enough to be getting this on 7th October, but we here in the UK will have to wait a little longer until 28th October to see it. Without further ado, here are the great new clips from the film. Enjoy.
