Second Campaign Trailer Is the Right Candidate for Real America
Posted 07.27.12 by Mandy
Baby punching still included.
When the second trailer for a movie is less than half the length of the first trailer, one assumes that it will be all the same footage — just less of it. This is not the case for the second trailer for The Campaign starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. This second trailer still conveys the premise of the movie, shows some funny moments, but leaves viewers confident that they haven't already seen the best parts of the flick. It's pretty much everything a trailer should be.
Voting for: Even though this trailer is a full minute and a half shorter than the first one, we love that we get yet another earth-tone sweater from Galifianakis' Marty Huggins.
Voting against: Obviously, some things we loved in the first trailer will be edited out of this one. In this case, sadly, we lose some of the scenes featuring the fabulous, immovable politician's hairstyle worn by Ferrell's Cam Brady.
Can't go wrong: Jason Sudeikis saying "he just punched a baby" in a southern accent is one of the most inexplicably giggle-inducing things we've seen in a trailer so far this year. Maybe that's how Sudeikis gets all those pretty ladies.
Next Showing: The Campaign
Opens August 10th.
