Watch: Second Official Shorter, Sweeter Trailer for 'The Descendants'
"My friends think that because I live in Hawaii, we live in paradise…" Fox Searchlight has put up a second official trailer for Alexandre Payne's The Descendants, starring George Clooney as a Hawaiian lawyer and land owner who tries to take care of his two daughters when his wife ends up in a coma. The first trailer hit back in May. This one is shorter, but does the perfect job of capturing the tone of the film, and how it balances emotion and comedy, as our friend Peter Sciretta's quote says. Shailene Woodley and Amara Miller star as his daughters, along with Nick Krause as the "'sup bro" kid. I highly suggest checking it out.
