The first trailer for the new Will Ferrell and Zach 'The Hangover' Galifianakis comedy The Campaign has just been released.
The story follows North Carolina politician Cam Brady (Ferrell), who has run for governor five years unopposed. That is until Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) shows up. Watch the trailer:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7yC0iiK7a4
Yeah, Will Ferrell just punched a baby.
Ferrell and Galifianakis aside, it boasts a pretty impressive looking supporting cast: Jason Sudeikis, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd and Brian Cox. Directing The Campaign is Jay Roach (Meet The Parents, Austin Powers), whose last movie was the very mediocre Dinner For Schmucks.
The Campaign looks to have about as much comic potential as you could expect from a Will Ferrell vehicle, with Cam Brady having some shades of Ron Burgundy about him, and Zach Galifianakis looking on good form as his utterly clueless opponent. But Zach going beardless seems so wrong!
The Campaign is due for release on August 10th in the US, and September 28th in the UK.
