Weekly movie trailer roundup: George Clooney gets screwed – twice!

Weekly movie trailer roundup: George Clooney gets screwed – twice!

George Glooney stars in two of the majorest motion pictures to hit theaters this Fall, and while the films couldn’t be more different (a family drama and a political thriller), they do have one thing in common: George Clooney gets screwed. In THE IDES OF MARCH, which opens on October 7th, Clooney plays an upright presidential candidate whose press secretary, played by Ryan Gosling, turns against him right before the Ohio primaries, threatening his entire campaign. Does the aptly chosen title ring a bell to anyone? The phrase was made popular by Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar, and refers to the date that Caesar was killed, or rather assassinated, when he was stabbed (23 times) to death in the Roman Senate by a group of conspirators and fellow politicians. The trailer for IDES OF MARCH doesn’t include any such scene, but while political backstabbing may have become less bloody, it’s not any less treacherous.
