'The Ides of March': George Clooney, Ryan Gosling Play Politics in New Trailer (Video)
The trailer for George Clooney's upcoming movie The Ides of March hit the Internet on Wednesday.
In the movie, Ryan Gosling plays a young press secretary who falls prey to dirty backroom politics in the film. Clooney portrays the candidate for whom Gosling's character works.
Clooney directed the Columbia Pictures drama and co-wrote the script with his Smoke House Pictures partner Grant Heslov.
Clooney, an outspoken liberal, says he made his character a Democrat to bypass any claims that the film had a personal agenda.
Ides, which also stars Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Evan Rachel Wood, is set for wide release Oct. 7 via Sony Pictures Entertainment.
The film also screens at both the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival in September.
