Will Ferrell's The Campaign Kicks Off with First Trailer, Anchorman 2 Trailer Attached to The Dictator
Posted 05.11.12 by Chris
Earlier this week we were treated to a pair of political ads from Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis' upcoming comedy The Campaign. Now we have the movie's first actual trailer, and it doesn't disappoint. Ferrell and Galifianakis play political rivals willing to go to any length to win the election. Here's the movie's full synopsis:
When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naive Marty Huggins (Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.
And in other Ferrell news, Collider reports that a teaser trailer for Anchorman 2 will be shown before The Dictator next week — surprising since Anchorman 2 was just greenlit in March. The teaser reportedly shows the Channel 4 news team (minus Christina Applegate's Veronica) stating how excited they are to return. The teaser ends with the title Anchorman: The Legend Continue — 2013. We can't wait.>
