After nearly a month at the top of the box office, Batman has fallen. In his place stand two new Hollywood champions: 'The Bourne Legacy' and 'The Campaign,' both of which opened to strong numbers. Still, these solid openings won't blow anyone's socks off, mainly because we've seen the likes of these do so much better in the past.
Will Rogers is said to have said that "a fool and his money are soon elected." That was so 20th century. Were he around today he'd know to say "a fool and SOMEONE ELSE'S money are soon elected."
Perfectly timed for this November's battle at the ballot box, 'The Campaign' is a much needed jaundiced look at all that is wrong with the current brand of American democracy. It is the third fast-paced film about modern politics, after 'Recount' and 'Game Change,' from director Jay Roach. When the YouTube mashup artists get their hands on all the material, there will be many stretches where it will be impossible to tell which of the three films is fictional.
Even more exciting than the upcoming 2012 Presidential Election, Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are going head-to-head in the political comedy 'The Campaign,' coming to the big screen August 10. If the trailers gave us any indication, it's going to be a lot of hair pulling, crossbow slinging, baby punching and all the drama you'd imagine coming along with a congressional election. We know you want a front-row seat to this showdown, which is why we've got a ton of 'Campaign'-related swagger and gear for you to win.
We're a little over two weeks away from the release of the new comedy 'The Campaign,' starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as midwestern political rivals. In this new clip, the gentlemen sit down to dinner and ask their family to reveal any secrets that might get them in trouble during their campaign -- the results are hilarious.
August is summer's last hurrah at the box office. As such, there are a ton of fantastic films hitting your local theater this month, including some of the best independent films of the year so far. Read on for our list of theatrical releases and dates for this August and start planning accordingly.
If you lived in the small North Carolina town where Cam Brady (Will Ferrel) and Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis) were competing to get a seat in Congress, which would you vote for? Well maybe these two new posters for the upcoming Jay Roach movie 'The Campaign' will sway you one way or another.
Politics are known for getting ugly. Candidates who are going after a prominent seat are willing to dig up all sorts of dirt on their competition, making sure that they bury their adversary's campaign before they reach election day. That's exactly what's going on in the upcoming Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis comedy 'The Campaign.'
