First Trailer drops for David Gordon Green’s ‘Our Brand is Crisis’ starring Sandra Bullock

our-brand-is-crisis-slice-600x200One of the under the radar Academy Award hopefuls that I’ve been the highest on, sight unseen, has been David Gordon Green‘s political drama/satire Our Brand is Crisis. Starring Sandra Bullock, it’s a look at political campaign operatives trying to influence an election in South America, and the First Trailer has just hit. Essentially, it looks like a slightly lighter cross between Argo and No, which could make this a pretty Oscar friendly endeavor. The top notch supporting cast also includes Ann Dowd, Zoe Kazan, Anthony Mackie, Scoot McNairy, Billy Bob Thornton, and more, while Peter Straughan wrote the script that Green directed. I think it looks really good, and while we won’t know about its awards prospects for a bit, I see no reason not to keep it all over my early predictions. Our Brand is Crisis will play at the Toronto Film Festival this week before hitting theaters on October 30th. George Clooney and Grant Heslov are producers and at one point wanted to make this themselves. The last time that happened and someone else took over, it was Ben Affleck and we got Argo. Yup, and we all know what the end result was, there’s no reason to doubt this one yet. Take a look at the Trailer below and stay tuned for much more on Our Brand is Crisis
