As the momentum builds for who will be in contention for February’s 84th Oscar Academy Awards the films tipped to shine at the awards will be getting released,re-released to make sure they’ll be included and one of those films is Alexander Payne’s THE DESCENDANTS. Following its critical success at the London Film Festival, Fox Searchlight have shipped us over the new international trailer (below) along with 3 new images as the film which is one of the big favourites to scoop up some of the Oscars.
Starring George Clooney as a father of two teenage daughters living on Hawaii who is forced to look after his daughters after his wife was involved in a boating accident which left her in a coma. The film certainly shows George Clooney at his best best been charming funny as well as very dramatic making him a strong favourite for best actor category, The Descendants I’ll have to say is a stronger bet than Ides Of March Clooney’s directed film (that’s not saying Ides Of March isn’t a good film though).
THE DESCENDANTS opens in UK &Ireland on January 27th, 2012, For USA the movie will be out December 16th. The Descendants also co-stars Judy Greer, Matthew Lillard, Beau Bridges, and Robert Forster.
