Let’s be honest if you had Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis contesting for the recent local or even better national elections would you go out and actually vote for them? Probably you would especially after watching the funny first UK Trailer for THE CAMPAIGN.Will Ferrell plays Cam Brady a congressman who has successfully held his political seat for many years unchallenged until its time to campaign for a fourth term when Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis) decides to challenge him. Don’t expect baby kissing kissing in this one more like punching them! This looks ridiculously zany, naughty but typical for these two lovable comedian actors, American politics can be a boring, complex but The Campaign just looks a bundle of laughs. Could you picture Ken Livingston and Boris Johnson doing this for London Mayor elections?
The Campaign is coming to UK&Ireland on September 28th and co-stars Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, Sarah Baker, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Dan Aykroyd and Katherine LaNasa.
When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will 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 (Zach 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
