The Campaign

The Campaign

Will Ferrell's movie The Campaign looks set to be one of the not to miss comedy films of the autumn as he teams up with fellow funnyman Zach Galifianakis.

And the comedians are battling it out for votes as they play political rivals in the Jay Roach directed movie.

And we have some great new clips for you to enjoy ahead of the movie's release next week:

The movie marks the return to movie for Roach for the first time since Dinner For Schmucks having dabbled in TV.

But he is a bit of a pro when it comes to the comedy genre with Meet The Parents and the Austin Powers movies under his belt.

But it is not all about Ferrell and Galifianakis as a fantastic cast had been assembled around them that includes Jason Sudeikis, Brian Cox, Dan Akyroyd and John Lithgow.

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: naïve 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. As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other.

The Campaign is released 28th September.
